If you are the kind who enjoys design and are into rendered concept designs, you’ll for sure love this Google Pixel 2 concept.
With less than a year before the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are replaced, many are eager to see what the search engine giant will be doing with the successors to these phones as it looks to bolster its position as a top smartphone seller beside the likes of Apple and Samsung. Well, there is a new Google Pixel 2 concept image discovered by the TechDroider and if Google takes this direction or rather some cues from this design, we should brace ourselves for a really nice ending to 2017, just like it happened with 2016.
From the designs, there are lots of similarities with the current Pixel and Pixel XL, something that is definitely expected. However, you can also expect some differences to creep in and according to this concept images, the Google Pixel 2 will ship with the main camera repositioned to the center of the phone, however, the fingerprint scanner will keep its position, meaning we’ll end up with a rear panel that closely takes after the Huawei Mate 9 in terms of camera and fingerprint scanner placement. On the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, the camera and module have been placed on the left corner of the phone.
A closer look at the phone reveals what look like pronounced chamfered edges around the entire phone – front and back – unlike the 2016 Pixel phones whose chamfered edges on the front panel are hardly noticeable. If this Google Pixel 2 concept materializes, we’ll end up with dual front-facing speakers on the 2017 flagship from the search engine giant, a step up from the bottom-placed single speaker used on the current Pixel phones. Interestingly, this concept image adds two additional speakers on the back of the phone, just above the main camera. This could be a real beast when it comes to outputting sound, be it when facing up or down.
Google Pixel 2 fans are not ready to part with the 3.5mm headphone jack just yet. The designer of this concept is adamant that this phone will keep this audio port as well as the USB-C port for charging and data transfer.
Be warned that this is just an independent concept designer who is trying to envision what he would like the Google Pixel 2 to look like – it has nothing to do with Google. Still, it would be an interesting design if Google chose to take the same direction, but we’ll have to wait and see what the tech giant has in store for us.
