Recently thanks to an image shared by Android Police, we have a rough idea of what the Google Pixel XL 2 could look like. While the rendering itself was interesting, what was also interesting was a tidbit that the handset could sport a squeezable frame similar to that of the HTC U11.

Now thanks to the folks at XDA, additional details about the phone have surfaced. Starting with the display, the report is claiming that we could be looking at a phone with a 5.99-inch 1440p OLED display. It is also said that the phone will feature an ambient display that is always on, which seems to be in line with an earlier report that suggested that Google could bring this feature to its Pixel phones.

It also seems that the phone could have multiple display profiles, meaning that users will have greater flexibility and freedom when it comes to adjusting the display settings on the phone. The squeezable frame is also a rumored feature that will allow users launch apps or features, such as Google Assistant.

It is said that users can also adjust the squeezing intensity threshold so that they can find a sweet spot depending on their preferences. It is also reported that this could be used to silence incoming calls. It is interesting as the rumors claim that LG will be the ones making the phone, even though HTC was the first to debut such a hardware feature. In any case take it with a grain of salt, but it probably should be in the few weeks or months that we will have all the official details.
