Google’s upcoming flagship of the year is on the verge of being announced and we can’t help but wonder what it will have in store for us. Despite the usual leaks and rumors, we’re always in a position to be surprised. By the look of it, Google is planning to streamline its smartphone design with the rest of the market, incorporating a larger display with a bevy of other goodies. Now, a day before the official announcement, we have got our hands on a leak of the Google Pixel 2 XL, which seems to have a larger screen compared to its predecessor. So let’s check it out along with other details.
Google Pixel 2 XL To Feature Larger Screen Size With Dual Speakers At The Front
Evan Blass has shared an image of the Google Pixel 2 XL which is housed in a case. Even though it looks quite different from the original, there are ample of similarities from the Pixel XL. On the first look, we can see that the screen-to-body ratio is higher, however, not as high as the Galaxy Note 8, the S8 and S8+ or the forthcoming iPhone X. However, that is not much of a drawback as you’re being compensated with an another feature that most of you might adore.
As you can see in the image provided, the so-called Google Pixel 2 XL features a top and a chin for bezels. If you look closely, you will see that the handset boasts dual front-firing speakers. This definitely makes sense for the design as well as the company’s motives to add the dual front-facing speakers if you’re on up for an all-screen design, much like other smartphones on the market.
All in all, the screen is now bigger compared to its predecessor, but not as big as other smartphone manufacturers. Nonetheless, there are several advantages associated with it as the device would be an ideal for media consumption and playing games. In addition to this, one major benefit of having dual front-facing speakers is that your thumb would not block the audio if you’re playing games.
Even though we all wanted Google to go with an all-screen design, having a dual set of speakers at the front is pretty decent and compensates well overall. If you’re up for buying the bigger Google Pixel 2 XL, the price that rumored for it is $849, so do take that in mind. Probably, there will be a lot of other changes in terms of features, so let’s keep out fingers crossed for more.
