Google is going to unveil its new Pixel smartphones in a couple of days. If you’re impatient like many of us tech enthusiasts, you’ll certainly want to find out just what the Pixel 2 looks like. You’re in luck. Two fresh renders of the Google Pixel 2 XL have been leaked online by a source with a solid track record. The renders leave little to the imagination.
Evan Blass, better known as @evleaks, has leaked two renders of the Google Pixel 2 XL. The first one shows off the device in a case and the other with the case. Both reveal the design changes that Google has made.
The render confirms that the Google Pixel 2 XL is going to feature dual front-facing speakers. It’s also going to tout a redesigned launcher. The case doesn’t betray a cutout for the 3.5mm headphone jack so it’s not likely to be onboard. As expected, the power and volume buttons are on the right side of the device.
The redesigned launcher puts the Google search bar in a more convenient location even though an argument can be made that it doesn’t look as nice as it should. We can also see a new reminder widget but it’s unclear at this point in time if this will be a permanent fixture.
It’s possible that additional renders may be leaked in the days to come. Even if they don’t, Google will reveal the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in all their glory come October 4th.
