Google Pixel 2 image leak suggests big bezels and no headphone jack

  • Google Pixel 2 News: First possible render of Taimen spotted

Unfortunately, the new Pixels are also expected to share something else in common with the latest iPhones: neither of the two Pixel phones is said to have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Both features will give the Pixel 2 a unique edge over the iPhone 8. Even so, both handsets should feature dual speakers on the front - something that older HTC flagships have gotten us used to - although neither will offer dual rear cameras. Google announced the original Pixel phones in early October a year ago, so it's possible that we'll meet these new models in two months' time.

Recent months have mostly seen renders of the Pixel XL, with the Pixel's design going mostly unknown. However, it's said that the larger, 6-inch Pixel XL 2will have thin bezels, thus likely resembling the device seen in previously leaked renders.

Although leaked renders suggest that this year's Pixel XL will be a attractive device with minimal bezels, its smaller sibling could be a different story entirely. However, when companies like Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi are unveiling phones with curved screens and bezel-less displays, Google's Pixel phones simply look... uninspiring.

Having said this, GizmoChina further mentions that users can pre-order these cases at MobileFun, where the images were spotted originally.


What are your thoughts on the Pixel 2? It's also possible that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL could jump to a base storage of 64GB while at the same time pushing this limit to a massive 256GB, which should be a welcome idea for many fans given that Google phones, traditionally, don't come with a microSD card slot.

However, word on the street is that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL could debut with IP68-certified bodies to ensure of their dust and water resistance. We believe that then we have to rely on the USB port.

With many OEMs moving towards this direction, it won't be long before you start finding it hard when it comes to bumping into decent headphones that are compatible with 3.5mm audio jacks.

The bad news is that while there are a couple new features included with this Pixel 2, there's one notable missing feature, too.
