The Pixel 2 XL is one of Google’s upcoming smartphones that’s manufactured by LG (while the Pixel 2 is made by HTC), and perhaps that’s why it’ll offer a near-bezel-less screen reminiscent of the LG G6 or LG V30. While we’ve already seen various images and renders allegedly showing the Pixel 2 XL, we can now take a look at a new photo that seemingly confirms the fact that the device has thin bezels around its display (a 6-inch one, if rumors are correct).
Posted on Twitter by Evan Blass (@evleaks), the new image shows the Google Pixel 2 XL inside a protective case. Even so, the near-bezel-less, round-cornered screen is obviously visible, as is the fact that the phone has power and volume buttons on the right side (similar to the Pixel XL from last year). We’re also seeing stereo front-facing speakers, and a pretty normal selfie camera.
According to a previous report, the Pixel 2 XL will be more expensive than last year’s Pixel XL, as Google is apparently planning to sell it for $849 (64 GB model) and $949 (128 GB model). The new smartphone should be powered by a very potent Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, just like other expensive smartphones of this year, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and the LG V30.
Update: Evan Blass posted a second photo (embedded above), this time showing the Pixel 2 XL “without a case.” All in all, the bezels around the screen don’t seem to be that thin, at least not compared to what the LG V30 or the Galaxy Note 8 are offering.
The Pixel 2 XL and the smaller (5-inch) Pixel 2 will be officially announced by Google in a couple of days, on October 4. Both smartphones will likely be available to buy shortly after that. We’ll be here to let you know all about the two devices once full details are revealed.
