The Google Pixel and Pixel XL have only been around for about 3 months now, but rumors have already begun regarding the sequel to the series. Dubbed the Pixel 2 for now, the handset has undergone a significant redesign going by a set of images showing off the phone from every angle.
Based on the China-sourced photos, the Google Pixel 2’s most noticeable change can be seen on its back. The two-tone design appears to have been abandoned in favor of a single-color completely glass back that places the camera module towards the center instead of to the side. The component seems to be directly above the fingerprint scanner.
Furthermore, the Google symbol has gotten pushed down to the bottom. The handset in the renders has its antenna bands all around the corners and its edges sport a chamfered look. It looks to have 2 speakers on the front surface, possibly to bring about stereo sound.
The front of the alleged Pixel 2 also boasts of narrower bezels on the top and bottom. Other notable aspects include a USB Type-C port at the base, a 3.5mm headphone jack at the peak, and two separate volume rockers instead a single one.
There’s no way to authenticate these snapshots as yet. The sequel to the Google Pixel will probably come out in Q4 this year. Specifications hinted at so far encompass things like a Snapdragon 835 processor, IP68 or IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, 6GB of RAM, a 5-inch 2K panel, and support for the next generation of Daydream VR.
