Olixar cases for the Pixel 2 pop up, renders of the phone included

So, before hot phones hit the market, case makers start gearing up, racking on various case models, preparing for a spike in sales. During this period, some cases may pop up on various mobile accessory websites, with computer-generated images of the case, with a render of what the phone is expected to look like inside. This render is usually not officially confirmed by the phone maker or anything, but taken from all the leaks that we see day in and day out.

What's curious about this specific set of cases is that it shows renders of the upcoming Pixel 2, which we haven't seen before. The cases in question are Olixar FlexiShield models, in a few different colors, listed at MobileFun.com.

So, what do we have? The design is very similar to the alleged leaked design we saw for the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 a couple of weeks ago. We still have the piece of glass on the back taking much less space than it does on the first gen Pixels. We can also see an extra-wide slit for the earpiece speaker right above the elongated display. We don't see, however, a second speaker on the bottom — either it's hidden in shadow, or the small Pixel 2 might not have stereo speakers (this is all assuming that these renders as well as the Pixel XL 2 leaks are on point). Also, note that the flash of the camera is situated on the opposite side — it's on the outside edge of the camera, towards the phone's corner, instead of being towards the middle of the phone. The camera also appears like it isn't protruding, but it's hard to say from the angle.

Again, this render doesn't confirm anything. But it's one we haven't seen before.

It's worth noting, though, that our friends over at MobileFun have confirmed that the case models by Olixar do not have an opening for a headphone jack. Apparently, Olixar is certain that the Pixel will take the courageous step to eliminate 3.5 mm jack compatibility...

I've read from other sources that the Pixel 2 will in fact mirror the design of the Pixel 2 XL, so the Bezels should be comparable on both devices... Man, I cannot wait for a smaller flagship device!

Shame only a single camera, second camera good for either wide angle or zooming, it also helps with low light.

Last year's Pixel phone had the best camera on a smart phone when it was released, Google has also made statements that they're working diligently to improve upon the camera for the Pixel 2. I think that even without a second camera, you can still have high expectations for the camera on the Pixel 2.

Asymmetrical just like the LG G6. Looks ugly. The rounded corners of the display are not symmetrical to the corners of the body. If you looks at the recent Apple IP8 renders it looks much more symmetrical since the shape/lines of the display matches the ones of its housing.

The renders of the iPhone look like a toy. We have been using phones that have rounded corners with squared off screens for years and no one complains..... This render looks much better than the iPhone render.
