We may now know what Google’s new flagship smartphones will look like.
Droid Life on Tuesday posted photos that are supposedly of the company’s upcoming Pixel devices.
The larger of the two new phones will be called the Pixel 2 XL and will be the successor to last year’s Pixel XL, according to Droid Life. The device will cost $US849 for the 64GB model, and $US949 for the 128GB model, according to the outlet. The Pixel 2 XL will come in two colour options, according to the report: all black and a combination of black and white.
The smaller of the two new phones will be dubbed the Pixel 2 and will succeed the original Pixel, Droid Life reported. The 64GB Pixel 2 will be priced at $US649, and the 128GB model will go for $US749, according to the report. The new device will come in three colour choices: all white, all black, or pale blue, according to Droid Life.
As it did with the original Pixels, Google will likely offer the new phones through its online store. The company is expected to announce the new smartphones at an event it’s scheduled for October 4.
The photos published by Droid Life don’t show the front of the new phones, so it’s unclear whether they will have narrower edges around their screens than the previous Pixel models. Narrow edges, or bezels, are a big trend among recent smartphones.
The photos do bolster the the rumour that the Pixel 2 XL will have a smaller glass plate on its back than the previous Pixel XL. Here’s what the older phone looked like:
As with any leaks about unreleased devices, it’s hard to know how much faith to put in these images or Droid Life’s report. We won’t know their accuracy until Google’s October 4 event.
