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.
