New Information On Pixel 2 And Pixel 2 XL Surfaces

Would you buy the Pixel 2 if it doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack? [POLL]

Finally, the headphone jack is said to have been removed from both Pixel 2 phones. Both features will give the Pixel 2 a unique edge over the iPhone 8.

The back looks nearly identical to the back of the purported Pixel XL 2, which means that neither the Pixel 2 nor the Pixel XL 2 will have a dual-lens camera. While it's likely that this year's Pixel phones will boast incredible camera quality like last year's Pixel phones, it's still disappointing to see that Google will (probably) be the only major smartphone manufacturer to not have a flagship with a dual-lens camera in 2017. According to Venture Beat, HTC is manufacturing the Pixel 2, while LG is making the Pixel XL 2. Forbes now has some renderings of the Google Pixel 2 smartphone thanks to casemaker Olixar.

Are you already planning on picking up a new Pixel or Pixel XL this year? While the latter two are expected to be announced this month, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will not be here until September or October this year, just like it happened with the 2016 models. As for the Pixel 2 variant, you still get a 5-inch display screen, but this will mean the phone gets a lower price tag as well compared to the high-end model.

Blass's report notes that HTC is building the Walleye version of the Pixel on Google's behalf while LG will handle work on the larger Pixel.

Google's Pixel phones have always been rather divisive: their software offer unparalleled purity and fluidity, and their cameras are impressive to say the least.

What are your thoughts on the Pixel 2? But, unlike past year, at least there's a speaker housed in the bottom bezel. We believe that then we have to rely on the USB port.

The image also reveals the absence of traditional 3.5mm audio jack while confirming a long ear-piece speaker on the front.

The bad news is that while there are a couple new features included with this Pixel 2, there's one notable missing feature, too.
