Finally, it's the Google Pixel 2 leak we all wanted. Following months of incremental details like mysterious code names and benchmarking specs and fans now can see how exactly what Google's new flagship smartphone will look like.

Google Leak Shows Pixel 2 Is Massive

Android Police, which has an exceptional track record, has delivered the renders which show a dramatically redesigned phone which can proudly stand toe-to-toe with the Galaxy S8 and what we expect will be Apple's overhauled iPhone 8 designs, Forbes reported.

Android Police said that the phone pictured is "Taimen", which is expected to be the second generation Pixel XL. Furthermore, compared to the first generation Pixel XL the render, coupled with Android Police's additional information, reveals numerous alterations and enhancements.

According to WCCF Tech, the render is based on information that Android Authority received from its sources. At the front of the Pixel, fans can see a similar minimum bezel display, that's become the trend for 2017.

 It will be manufactured by LG and will place the Pixel 2 XL comfortably along the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. The fingerprint sensor is now under the glass part of the device and the familiar Google logo is also visible at the bottom.

Looking at the device's front, fans can see a large speaker grill, that might also double up to provide stereo sound. The image's source also claims that the smartphone will have a squeezable frame.

This will allow users to interact with Google Assistant by simply squeezing their device. The Pixel 2 XL looks quite the device in today's image as it captures the high end, premium bracket much better than its predecessor, which aimed to be more playful.

Last year the Pixel and Pixel XL were identical except for size but this year Android Police says the smaller Pixel 2 will not have the design changes of the Pixel 2 XL and instead be positioned as a cheaper model. That would likely leave fans of smaller handsets feeling shortchanged, especially since the original Pixel has such large bezels it makes the 5-inch phone larger than it should be.
