The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are some of the most highly-anticipated devices of the year, and thanks to the FCC we may have at least a couple details confirmed ahead of the announcement.

The Pixel 2 leaked in a low resolution render last week. Now, the handset has leaked in some real life photos which give us a clear look at its design. The photos confirm the handset’s huge top and bottom bezels at the front, the rear mounted fingerprint scanner and the lack of a headphone jack.
Later this year, Google is going to introduce followups to both the Pixel and Pixel XL, with plenty of changes already rumored for the larger Pixel XL 2.
Google’s second generation Pixel and Pixel XL still might be a couple of months away from their official unveiling, but OnLeaks has gone ahead and posted 3D renders of the handsets. The 3D renders show off the sleek new design of the handsets which sadly lack a headphone jack.
After getting a look at the beautiful Pixel XL (2017) via a render earlier this week, more details about the handset have leaked online. The leak reveals the possible new features that the Pixel XL 2 will ship with including an Always On Display and as other rumors have pointed, a squeezable frame.

Last year saw the arrival of the Pixel and Pixel XL, pushing Google into a brand new path for smartphones.
Up until now, we have heard a bit of rumors about Google’s upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL2 handsets. The last report surrounding the handset claimed that Google had replaced the original Pixel XL with an even bigger device codenamed ‘Taimen’ made by LG. Today, detailed specs of both the handsets, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL2 have been leaked thanks to a source of XDA-Developers.
A report from earlier today had claimed that Google had cancelled the second-generation ‘muskie’ in favor of an even bigger ‘taimen’ device. With HTC manufacturing the smaller ‘walleye’, it was assumed that the company was also going to manufacture ‘taimen.’
Google’s original Pixel might not have sold like hot cakes but the company has not been deterred by its failure and is already working on its successor, the Pixel 2. Now, thanks to a listing on GFXBench, the alleged specs of the Pixel 2 have been revealed.
