A few days ago, the first image of the Google Pixel 2 XL surfaced courtesy of Android Police. The image revealed a few similarities to the likes of LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 as well as the outgoing Pixel XL, but the exact details of the phone remain unclear.
To take the already-known details of the phone to the next level, a YouTube concept creator has reimagined what the Google Pixel 2 XL could look like in a series of renders. If Google is to borrow a few tips from these renders, many will definitely love the Pixel 2 XL phone.
The design looks stunning, but it’s the color variants that make it even better. The back, similar to the 2016 models, will feature a two-tone design, where the upper section will be made of a glass material and the lower part will feature a metallic design. Unlike last year’s models, the fingerprint scanner will be housed by the metallic section, but there’s no dual-lens camera setup.
Speaking of the camera, the placement of the sensor on the Google Pixel 2 XL has slightly changed when compared to the Pixel phones. The camera hole also looks way bigger than its predecessor, but the LED flash keeps its position to the left of the sensor.
In terms of appearance, the concept images show off quite an amazing set of color variants. Last year’s blue finish is still there, but this is joined by a stunning red color that should get many looking forward to the release of the phone. The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to come in two more color variants of black and white, making it a total of four, up from the three used on the 2016 models.
Previous rumors have suggested that the Google Pixel 2 XL will ship with a phablet-size 6-inch display screen with a QHD resolution, a Snapdragon 835 SoC mated with 4GB RAM and a base storage of 64GB. The camera on the back will be a 12MP shooter and the battery capacity will be same as the 3450mAh unit used last year, which could be a disappointment for some.
As expected, the phone, alongside the smaller Pixel 2, will ship with Android 8.0 out of the box.
