The Google Pixel 2 lineup, as far as we know, still needs a few more weeks before an official announcement. However, this might change with XDA recently releasing information regarding specs and design.
The phone will reportedly feature a smaller 497-inch variant named the ‘walleye’. Other than a Full HD resolution display, apparently the design remains the same. Another confirmed specs for the ‘walleye’ includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset. On top of this, 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage will assist in powering this phone. However, XDA also points out that the Pixel 2 might no longer include a 3.5mm headphone jack.
In contrast, the Pixel 2 ‘taimen’ stands as the largest Google phone made so far. Rumors point to a 5.99-inch, 1440p OLED display. The rest of the specs paint the portrait of a typical 2017 flagship. Users get a Snapdragon 835, supported by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Physically, it will sport slimmer bezels and a single-camera sensor with dual-LED flash. It appears that Google will not yet jump onto the dual-camera bandwagon.
Of course, there’s no surefire way to determine whether or not this news is legit. For now, waiting for an official announcement feels like a good idea.
