We still haven't heard official details about the release of the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL, but there has been a flood of leaks surrounding the device lately.

In a market where other smartphone rivals were about to catch the consumers' attention, the Pixel 2 would have stood a chance with some better specs and features, or even a better design. It suggests that the company might be in plans to skip some of the common features seen in the flagship smartphones of 2017.

Google is all set to release it most awaited Pixel phone with a different design from what the modern phones wear. Apart from this, the latest report adds that these smartphones will not have thin bezels.

Google's "Really Blue" limited edition Pixel model sold out in minutes at launch. Note that all of the above fully applies to Google Pixel 2 XL with a slightly larger screen size.

Ready for another round of rumors surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel successor? According to DxOMark, the Pixel had the highest score for any smartphone camera until the arrival of HTC U11. The tipster (unfortunately) confirmed to GSMArena that the Pixel 2 lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack as well, as was previously reported. That includes a real-life image of the smaller phone that leaked just last week. The Pixel 2 will also keep HTC as its manufacturer.

The pricing and features of a possible new Pixel phone haven't been disclosed yet. It started last Friday when VentureBeat shared a blurry image of the Pixel 2, which looked eerily like the first Pixel.

Two price cuts were revealed by the search giant.

The smaller Pixel's price has also come down from $649 to $524. Not only do you get up to $200 off the handsets, but Google is also throwing in a Daydream VR headset for free.
