This Is the 2017 Google Pixel "XL"


As for the device itself, we can see that the phone has no dual-cameras, suggesting that Google is sticking to what works best rather than go by the current trends. Still, we are exceptionally confident that this image represents the overall look and feel of Google's new smartphone, even if some small elements may not end up being representative of the final product.

Apparently, Pixel 2 has been assigned a codename dubbed as 'taimen' device.

'Mamma Mia 2' Gains Christine Baranski & Lily James
James already has a background in musicals, having starred and sang in Kenneth Branagh's live-action remake of Cinderella . James has recently been seen in Edgar Wright's crime caper Baby Driver after being the lead in Disney's Cinderella .

You're staring at it.

If these photos pan out, though, the phone looks to be more rectangular with sharper corners compared with last year's model. The device also sports a fingerprint scanner at the rear that looks to be identical to the ones found on its predecessor. It's possible they're just cleverly hidden - I wouldn't hold my breath on a completely "bandless" phone. The device seemingly borrows inspiration not only from the Pixel XL, but also the LG G6 through the adoption of a taller display with minimal bezels. The big bezels of the first handset are gone, however, thanks to a new rounded AMOLED panel that takes up much of the device's face. But HTC's phone won't go the extra mile, so don't expect it to feature an nearly bezel-less screen. As to the headphone jack, we're not really sure what the status of that is, unfortunately.

Motorola's July Launch Event Invite Features its Shatterproof Displays (Moto Z2 Force)
The media invite that Motorola sent out mentions: " get ready to shatter your expectations " with a hashtag #hellomotoworld. Previously, Motorola has assured that any new Moto Mods will be compatible with the new Moto Z lineup of smartphones.

We have no information on pricing or an exact release date at this time. A recent image leak showed us the purported design of the Pixel 2 XL, while a pair of case leaks showed protective gear for both the smaller Pixel 2 and the larger Pixel 2 XL. Google has not been linear with naming its phones. Now, a new leaked image has revealed that Google may be taking a page out of #HTC's book by using a similar squeezable #Frame Technology as the HTC U11.

The color is exactly as you would expect from a Pixel phone, with the two tone color combination prominent on the back panel. Rumors say the Pixel 2 will inherit the Pixel's iPhone design.
