Google Pixel 2 / XL 2 Ditching 3.5mm Headphone Jack, If these CAD renders are Accurate

Leaked renders of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 has once again emerged online, giving us potentially the best look yet at the upcoming phones. Here’s what Google 2017 flagship looks like.

Before going into details, we have to be excited to know that Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 getting so much attention right now it is often easy to forget that there are other flagship smartphones that are still to arrive this year. The two we are interested to share are the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, the replacements for last year’s Pixel devices.

CAD leaks surrounding the two new phones have been in a much smaller count than either Apple or Samsung’s latest and greatest, but that does not mean that there’s nothing to learn, and prolific leaker @OnLeaks again has the buzz. There is still a good chance that the leaks depicts something pretty close to what we’ll see when the second-gen Pixel phones are launched later this year.

With screen sizes of 4.95-inchs for the Pixel 2 and 5.99-inches respectively scooped for the Pixel XL 2, 4GB of RAM, 64GB and 128GB storage and yes, a complete lack of sort of 3.5mm headphone jack. Sorry folks. The new leak from OnLeaks is a render of what both of the new and as-yet unannounced devices may look like and certainly fit in with previous leaks.

The devices in the renders clearly adhere o Google’s design language, featuring that unmistakable two-piece back plate, and circular rear fingerprint scanner remains on the rear of both devices. There is indeed no headphone jack, and as was the case last year. Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 do look very similar, something that had previously been suggested to not be the case.

Although there are some new additions, namely, front-firing stereo speakers and an all-new camera bump. Apart from the different in screen size, the real difference we notice immediately is the larger top and bottom bezels on the smaller of the two phones. Chassis wise, as dimensions of 145.3 x 69.3 x 7.8mm for the Pixel 2 while the Pixel XL 2 will be 157.6 x 76.3 x 7.9 mm. Expect both devices to gain around half a millimeter around the camera bump, too. It looks like they will feature a large, single lens.

At this point, we can only assume to say with absolute certainly that this latest leak is real, but given OnLeaks’ past record we see little reason to doubt we are looking at thge Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 in the pictures above.
