Leaked Pixel 2 specs show Google has some surprises in store

The source told XDA Developers that the pre-production software that they used on Taimen (Google Pixel XL 2) referred to the phone's fingerprint sensor as "Nexus Imprint". While there will be no major change in terms of design, the report suggests that Google will include stereo speakers in the Google Pixel 2 while getting rid of the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. A 5.99-inch display with a 1440p OLED panel will be provided by LG, as reported by XDA-Developers.

This larger, Google Pixel XL 2 smartphone would feature an LG OLED display. The device will indeed pack the expected Snapdragon 835 processor alongside 4GB of RAM.

On the power front, Walleye will similarly offer the Snapdragon 835 processor and have 4GB of RAM. The new iPhone 8, once that lands later this year, will be the most expensive handset Apple has ever made. Meanwhile, "taimen" will feature smaller bezels in comparison to the current Google Pixel XL. But not content with having competition anywhere, Google outdid each and every example so far with its latest campaign, which asks people to submit their photos on the off chance they might get added to Chromecast's Backdrop pool of images. Google fans are now eagerly waiting for the next iteration of Pixel, which is coming out later this year. The cancelled Muskie model was believed to keep the same size display as the 2016 Pixel XL, so it seems Google has chose to go with a larger screen for the second generation instead.

The smaller Pixel device will feature a familiar 4.97-inch display with FHD resolution.

As far as the smaller Walleye (4.97-inch) is concerned, it is said to have nearly the same design language as the last year's generic 5.0-inch Pixel phone. Major smartphone companies have already released their new devices and now it is time for Google to release the newest updates on their Pixel variants. As soon as we have new information regarding the smartphones we will let you know. All trails lead back to HTC as the maker which means that we may see a version of the excellent HTC U11 camera (iTWire review here ) and of course a QHD AMOLED screen for Daydream VR, at least on the XL.

Based on the leaks, what appears to be certain is that the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will also be named after aquatic animals - Taimen and Walleye. Last years' Pixel XL featured a 5.5 inched display.

The XDA report stated that the data on the two Pixel 2 devices was provided by a trusted source, which has provided accurate leaks on other devices in the past.

Not to say it won't be a great handset and will be the VR king but I want more.
