New Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 3D renders envision Google's phones from all sides


Would you like to see some 3D render efforts imagining the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 from a source with a good track record? We thought so, and the latest installment of the render series that the @onleaks account has been blessing us with fleshes out the rumors, and depicts phones that may sport shrunk top and bezels (not all-screen, though), dual speakers, and with less glass use on the back, compared to their predecessors. 

The phones are expected to be top-notch in terms of specs, with Snapdragon 835 and all, but apparently may not be jumping on the dual camera bandwagon like most everyone is doing these days. Oh well, the Pixel's camera is one of the best out there, so even minor improvements would make it measure up to the 2017 flagship competition as well. 

The renders are made to fit the leaked dimensions of about 145.3 x 69.3 x 7.8 mm (8.2 mm with the camera bump) for the Pixel 2, while the XL 2 is clocking in at 157.6 x 76.3 x 7.9 mm (8.6 mm with the camera bump), claims the source. The larger phone may seem pretty big if the "bezel-less" concept picks up steam and wide user adoption, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, and wait to see what Google will really unveil this fall.

If the dimensions are accurate and the rumors of the smaller Pixel having a 5 inch screen again then Google is going the wrong way with the bezels. The Pixel 2 is taller than the OG Pixel. And since they also made it thinner they better not skimp on battery like Lenovo just did with the Moto Z2.

76.3mm for the XL 2 ? It should be having a 6.6 inch display

The XL 2's bezelless display + dual front facing speakers is really impressive. Correct me if I'm wrong, no one has done that yet right? Disappointed with the lack of headphone jack and camera bump? The Pixel's teardrop shape was a great way to hide the camera

I think you are right! I was disappointed as well when I didn't find any headphone jack and the camera protruding out of the body! :(

I hope this is the real thing and it comes with a headphone jack. If so Pixel 2 take my money.

RIP 3.5 mm jack. Headphone jack is more important than dual stereo speakers. No one is going to play and listen to music using that dual stereo speakers in public.

No headphone jack? I would choose Nokia 9(8?) then.

I was wanting the smaller Pixel, but I was disappointed to hear that it was keeping with the same design as last year's phone (Referring to bezel size). But after looking at the renders, it still looks to have been reduced quite a bit compared to last year's Pixel. I am so excited for a smaller phone with flagship specs!

Waiting on a new phone for Project Fi. If they remove the headphone jack, I'm switching back to TMobile.

Well, the next Moto X is supposed to be available for Google Fi. Just an option.

Front facing stereo speakers! I hope these are accurate because I didn't upgrade my Nexus 6p to the Pixel mostly because I hated that the Pixel didn't have front stereo speakers. Plus of course those huge front bezels are horrible. I can live without a headphone jack... I rarely use it anyway. I'll definitely be ready to pre-order if this is the final design.

Exactly this. I have the N6P and didn't upgrade because of the lack of dual speakers. Also i couldn't go to a smaller display. Very excited about this new XL2!

I don't understand the no 3.5mm jack thing. I really don't. I've heard every argument there is, and none are even remotely justified in my opinion, while others are laughable. If you don't use it, fine, it still doesn't hurt to have it there as an option. It doesn't affect waterproofing, the "extra cost" of adding it is infinitesimal and laughable, and the room it takes up is far too minimal for that to be a valid enough reason, but having more functions/options is ALWAYS better than having less. Blutooth, while conveniently wireless, does not provide the same audio fidelity as a wire, it's that simple, so why not just give the end user the option to use whichever they prefer?
