    A day ahead of Google's October hardware event, serial mobile leaker Evan Blass has shared images of the company's new 6-inch Pixel 2 XL smartphone, revealing a display with thin bezels and rounded corners reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S8.

    Rumors suggest the Pixel 2 XL will feature a QHD+ display with an 18:9 (2:1) aspect ratio, 4GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and front-facing stereo speakers, with a price tag of $849/$949 for either 64GB or 128GB of storage.

    Blass also tweeted images of the smaller 5-inch Pixel 2 (below) which, apart from a less impressive 1080p display, is thought to share the same specs as the XL 2. The wallpaper used in both the leaked images shows a vibrant depth-of-field view, suggesting an upcoming "bokeh" camera feature native to the new Google handsets.

    According to a source familiar with Google's release plans that spoke to VentureBeat, the new phones will have a pre-order period followed by a staggered rollout, with October 19 for the Pixel 2 and November 15 for the Pixel 2 XL.

    MacRumors will have all the details on Google's October 4 event, where the company is expected to unveil a range of products, including new Google Home smart speakers, a new laptop, and perhaps more.

    Looks very nice (although safe) can’t wait to see what Google will bring to the table with Pixel 2!

    Pixel 1 was a great first phone, but it was missing a few things that were dealbreakers, hopefully Google has fixed those

    Compared to what? Other smart phones that look the same. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But more importantly, its what the Pixel offers, aesthetics eventually wears off and it's all about the user experience.

    Front looks better with reduced bezels, but looks ugly form back due to that unevenly placed camera and rear finger print sensor. [Just My Opinion]

    Uneven camera? Isn't the iPhone camera uneven? Does matter if it's centered or not. It's the results of the photographs the camera produces that matters.

    Seems to.me that you are using any excuse to justify your iPhone X purchase. Why though. If you want iPhone Z just buy. I on other hand, probably will go for this.

    How y’all gon’ say the Pixel 2 XL is ugly when the iPhone X got this big ass forehead

    Smh...

    Only reason the iPhone X “isn’t ugly” is because y’all want that OLED iPhone and ain’t nothing you can do about the design

    At least this does not result ugly UI design. Look at iPhone X, all these icons just cramp on the top. UI design on iPhone X is nightmare

    There you go everyone. No notch, black bars on top and bottom, fingerprint reader on the back. This should sell like hot cakes if all the bitching on mac rumours about the iPhone X is anything to go by.

    This is the alternative to the notch - a bezel.

    I prefer the extra screen real estate.

    some say it ugly but how often do you look at back of the phone?

    all my phones have cases on so don't matter to me.

    So far the rumors I read say no expandable storage (removable SD card storage is typical for Android), no headphone jack, no hardware optical image stabilization, and there is just the single camera...and look at those prices. And the big bezels on the little version of the phone.

    Oh yeah and where is the fingerprint sensor? Also, its rumored there is no wireless charging, but I'll wait for confirmation on that.

    And tons of people here are complaining about iPhone 8/8 Plus being 'boring" and threatening to go to Android for the first time ever. Well, that's the Android phone with the much sought after "pure Android experience" that will get promised security updates in a timely manner for 3 years and OS updates for 2 years--from when the device is first made available on the store. If you get your device from a reseller a year after that date, you're running out of time.

    Not really. I actually like the notch design. I don’t see any issues with it. But I do think the pixel 2 XL is ugly. It’s design depends on what people like. Someone could like the pixel 2 but some don’t. And a lot of people have said the notch is ugly. So I don’t know where your information is coming from.

    I usually put my iPhone screen down. Have a screen protector on it. If I got the pixel I’d do what I do with my iPhone.

    Not trying to justify anything. I wouldn’t go android no matter what it looked like. But the pixel is straight up ugly. Can’t wait for my X

    No front facing speakers, no widgets, no smart sensing camera, no 128gb, no way to customize your phone, keep your boring apple.
