Take a look at what supposedly is a clear case for the Google Pixel 2

Google hit a home run with its 2016 launch of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. Manufactured by HTC, Google designed the phones. Of the two different variants of the device, the 128GB Pixel XL had trouble staying in stock. Overall, demand for the phone was strong enough for Google to get to work on producing a sequel to be released later this year. The latest rumor has Google on track to offer a Google Pixel 2, but it could replace a Pixel XL 2 with a brand new larger-sized phone.

To go even further, the Pixel sequel code named "Walleye" could be accompanied by a larger sized phablet with a code name of  "Taimen." The latter is expected to feature a bezel-less design that allows it to match other similarly designed handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Galaxy S8+, and the Essential Phone.

Tipster SlashLeaks has posted a photo of what he says is a case made for the Pixel 2. If this is a legitimate design, it appears that the rear-facing fingerprint scanner is back. There could be some changes to the camera design based on the odd looking cutout in the area where the rear-facing camera would be positioned. 

For now, it is all just speculation. As we get closer to the expected unveiling in October-November, we should see more pieces of the puzzle unveiled. Check in often for the latest on the follow-up to Google's successful Pixel handsets.

Big phone, small screen... I hope they will use LG in the future and make better design.

The funny thing is how these guys think these leaks are genine. The pixel 2 XL is "supposedly" going to be made by lg, and here, google picked them because they probably wanted a different design and a different screen from the smaller pixel which will supposedly be made by htc, again. Now, if this is the case, how then would it be that both phones will sport thesame designs oweing from these supposed random case leaks? When the device might still be some 4 months away due to google traditionally releasing the nexus/pixel between october-november? If anything what we should get are some leaked specification info, design leaks, cad drawings, renders based on cad leaks then case leaks, like the way its been done with every other phone for years now. Even if not exactly in that order. Point being that, there are some leaks u should instantly take with the proverbial grain of salt, even from face value. Thanks.

How lazy, Alan F. Did you realize there was a second image on the source page for the Pixel XL2 or do you plan on turning that into its own article? Either way, lazy.

Looks like they finally using the front facing speakers. Take a look at the bottom ports and it only got a microphone(maybe?) and a usb port. And a headphone jack on the top! And where's the Pixel 2 XL case picture?

Just like Pixel 1 it looks very similar to the iPhone. Very generic and boring look!
