More photos of the Google Pixel 2 leak, is this a new color option?

More photos of the Google Pixel 2 leak, is this a new color option?

From all we've seen and heard so far, Google's 2017 offerings in the Pixel line are going in two entirely different directions. While the larger device (most commonly called the Pixel XL 2, though the name is not yet confirmed) is jumping on the trend of displays with tall aspect ratios and tiny bezels, the smaller Pixel 2 is keeping much more in line with its predecessor.

And just a few days after we saw the first ever images of the latter, courtesy of the ever-reliable Evan Blass, GSMArena has published a couple more pictures the device, complete with a ton of stickers signifying the prototype nature of the units. Admittedly, the two photos show very little we haven't seen before, though they do give us a better representation of how the device is going to feel in real life.

In fact, the tipster who sent the photo reportedly claimed the Pixel 2 feels better in the hand than the original one, though they don't seem to have elaborated further on this claim. Also, we've got yet another confirmation that the device will lack a 3.5 mm headphone jack. And as GSMArena mentions, one of the photos also faintly shows the rear-mounted laser used for autofocus — a feature inherited from the original Pixel.

Also, the pictures may or may not show us a new color option — we've previously heard Google will be exploring new color territory, but we've heard nothing more specific so far. To us, this looks a bit like a dark blue, instead of the Pixel and Pixel XL's Quite Black. But then again, this could just be a result of the poor lighting the photos were taken with.

The Pixel 2 and its bigger brother are expected to make their debut this fall — we don't yet know any specifics, but we do have some in-depth speculation on the matter. Inside, we're expecting to see a Snapdragon 836 SoC, which is rumored to be the chipset's debut, as well as at least 4 gigs of RAM. And naturally, both devices should come with the yet-unnamed Android 8.0 out of the box.

The iPhone 7 looks bezeless when compared to this.

That's not an excuse for those humongous bezels.

Stereo speakers is a better use of space on the front of a phone than a finger print sensor which ideally should be on the back as it has absolutely no functional benefit to being on the front of the device.

I'm not arguing that. My point that even stereo speakers don't take this much space, Sony phones don't even have these gigantic bezels.

Hardly...

It looks like my Nexus 6P to be honest, which is a damn near perfect phone. I expect to like this one more simply because it'll be smaller, but still with all the powerhouse flagship specs.

Thanks to HTC designer, big bezel and without headphone jack are confirmed just like HTC U11.

Let's wait for Pixel XL designed by LG.

Oh ya, if both are the similar design, I would rather take Nokia 9, whenever cheaper and a headphone jack.

There is no Nokia 9 if I know right. The flagship will be the Nokia 8, which will be announced on the 16th of august.

Apparently Google (and HTC) didn't get the no bezels memo like every other company got this year.

Contrary to popular belief, apparently everyone isn't obsessed with bezels.

Real life images of the Pixel 2? Perhaps, but I'm still not that big a fan of the design. I would really of liked a 5.5 inch screen in the smaller version with bezels similar to the LG G6. Hopefully this will be the last HTC designed Pixel.
And Google better make 64GB the default storage size.

Guy's, If we want the Pixel 2 / 2XL to have front firing stereo speakers, there's gotta be some bezel at the top and bottom to accommodate it. Judging by the new leaked picture the bezels seem to be as large as on the Nexus 6P. With that much room in the top and bottom, I don't know why Google has chosen to omit the headphone jack, and they can't say it will be to make it more waterproof because waterproofing has been done on phones with headphone jacks (earlier Samsung Galaxy S phones). We can only hope the leaked pictures are from early prototypes.

I hope LG is making the bezel less one

Then who else would you expect to make or since it's been confirmed that LG is making the XL

Take my money please. I'd take front firing speakers over bezeless screen any day.

I have owned the S8 and currently daily drive the G6. This all screen front era is not all its cracked up to be. The devices feel more fragile than anything. However the G6 does feel better in the hand than the S8.

If this camera is anything like the U11....take my money now...
