A leaked image of the Google Pixel 2 is suggesting a near-bezel less design, similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy S8. Although the image is not very clear, one can easily figure out that the design largely remains the same when compared to the Pixel and the Pixel XL. The device sports a two-toned finish on the rear with glass on the top portion followed by metal.
A much expected change however is in the camera department. The rear houses a dual camera setup supposedly comprising of two 16-megapixel shooters and an 8-megapixel sensor up front.
The leak further specifies that the Google flagship will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 SoC, which might launch next month. However, Qualcomm has not officially announced about the development of such an SoC. Therefore, we recommend you to take it with a grain of salt.
The image shows us a “Pixel 2” which looks exactly like the original Pixel except for the dual cameras and more screen to body ratio. This creates a slight doubt as Google has never carried forward the same design with its Nexus devices. However, Google claims that the Pixel smartphone is “Google’s first smartphone” and hence it may be adopting a 2 year design refresh cycle just like most other smartphone giants.
What do you think? Are you ok with the same design or do you want a design refresh? Sound off in the comments below.
