The Google Pixel and Pixel XL rank among the most desired smartphones on the market, mainly thanks to their impressive features, stunning look, and excellent camera performance. Google is selling millions of Pixel and Pixel XL units out there since the launch day. The biggest search engine on Earth is planning something major for the next generation Pixel phone this year.
There have been a lot of rumors hinting at the second generation Google Pixel phone. Most rumors and tech experts claim that the next gen Google Pixel phones will make their debut on October 5th. That seems pretty plausible, as the original Google Pixel phones were announced October 4, 2016 during the MadeByGoogle event.
According to the latest sources, the Google Pixel 2 XL will feature smaller bezels all-around, while the standard Pixel will stick with the same design we have already seen on the first model. This matches with previous rumors which claimed that the next generation Pixel XL would adopt thinner bezels, just like this year’s Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
Some recent reports claim that the Taiwanese smartphone maker, HTC will be responsible for making the smaller Pixel device this year, while the South Korean firm, LG will make the bigger one. Last year, Google signed a deal with HTC to secure millions of Google Pixel and Pixel XL units, but things have changed this year.
Earlier this year, sources said that Google would invest hundreds of millions of dollars in LG’s manufacturing operations to boost OLED production. The South Korean firm is said to provide OLED panels for the second generation Pixel phones.
The second generation Pixel XL is rumored to come with a 5.99-inch 1440p OLED display, with bezel-less display, just like the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, while the Pixel 2 is said to feature a smaller 4.97 inch Full HD display. Both devices are said to have dual speakers on the front and an always-on display at the top.
