Google Pixel 2: have specs been revealed?

26/06/2017: More rumours have surfaced for the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, courtesy of a XDA-Developers source "familiar with the matter that spent time with at least one of these phones". Apparently, the latter definitely lacks a headphone jack. A 5.99-inch display with a 1440p OLED panel will be provided by LG, as reported by XDA-Developers.

The remaining specs for this device include the same Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM as its larger sibling, along with storage options that include 64GB.

Google held their last hardware event last October, so expect more news out of the company around this timeframe during 2017.

New rumors today confirm both and provides the first solid - thought expected - insight into what specs will power these upcoming devices, as well as other design changes in store.

Google will be looking to change this with its follow-up device. Unlike its larger sibling, however, the design of the smaller Pixel 2 device would be largely identical to last year's versions. The HTC U11 system files contain references to S2 and M2, which could be the code names for Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. This news aligns quite well with a previous report that Google has invested a significant sum into LG's mobile display development business.

The information about the larger model, codenamed Taimen is particularly interesting as it says that the bezels will be shrunk and a 128GB model will also be available.

We've been hearing for a long while that Google's next smartphones are coming later this year, and are being developed under the codenames "Walleye" and "Taimen". Details are now scrace, m but rumours are starting to circulate - here's everything we know about the Google Pixel 2. So we've gone from three potential devices (Walleye, Muskie, Taimen), to just two (Walleye and Taimen).

The Walleye device meanwhile will be the smaller device, with a 4.97-inch full HD display.

To accommodate the high-res displays, the Google Pixel 2 will be backed by a non-removable 3,000mAh battery, while the XL variant will have a 3,600mAh one.

Further, it is going to pack the Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of Storage. Unlike last year's model, however, the Pixel 2 flagships would not feature its fingerprint scanner on the glass part of the rear panel.

Google is very much a participant in the smartphone wars even if it does not go blazing into battle with the biggest, baddest artillery.
