As is usual in these cases, we have two anonymously-sourced pictures that purport to show Google’s Pixel 2 smartphone.
These are cobbled by HTC and what we can see matches with the leaked specs thus far.
You can see a pair of devices from the front.
Pixel 2 – what the photos say
These appear to be sporting the usual Nexus/HTC front-firing stereo speakers placed top and bottom. Handy as this is said to be lacking a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The display looks to retain a 16:9 aspect ratio. Could that be a third device in a different colour lying just to the left of frame? It could be, but is it a Google phone?
I am digging the phone bondage look of all that electric tape. However, this is more than a style statement, of course. It is there to cover any other detals that could give us more clues.
Also, a fingerprint sensor is placed just below the matte borderline.
The abrupt cut to glass gives the top end a sheen with a very visible glint on the top left corner.
The report states that there are two tiny pinholes below the LED flash module. These will allow for a microphone and a focus-assist laser unit.
Just in case you missed it, there’s also a rather large camera lens.
These snaps can now be bundled with the other details we already know.
Firstly, we have already said that both standard Pixel 2 and XL versions are said to be loaded with the Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM.
Secondly, screen sizes. The regular-sized handset will feature a 4.97-inch 1080p display and the XL gets a 5.99-inch 1440p panel.
Furthermore, it’s also been rumored to have an always-on display and a squeezable frame, just like the HTC U11.
