Pixel XL 2 To Have More Display Profiles & Always-On Screen

Google Pixel XL 2 Very Silver

Exclusive: This is the 2017 Google Pixel "XL," with low-bezel AMOLED display and squeezable frame

This option is mode because hand covers the bottom speakers. Mentions of doze_always_on were discovered within the Android O Developer Preview 3. The image's source also claims that the smartphone will have a squeezable frame. We can also see it lacks a Home key as it's understood the phone will feature a dedicated "Function Area" built into the display. This device design had borrowed from HTC.

The render reveals that the Pixel XL 2 bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor, the Pixel XL.

In other words, it shouldn't be much of a stretch to think it can achieve the no. 1 spot in DxOMark like what the original Pixel did. It also offers wireless charging, along with a microSD card slot, both of which are not available on the iPhone. The fingerprint scanner now sits below the glass "window" at the top of the phone, as opposed to inside it, likely because the window itself seems substantially smaller than the one on the 2016 XL. Just a couple of days back, an alleged Google Pixel XL 2 render emerged online.

The Android O supports Google devices such as Nexus and Pixel. This technology will be same as the one being used by HTC for its U11 flagship smartphone. In particular, the Google Pixel 2 XL or the codename Taimen device, the larger device coming from Google that will feature a 5.99-inch display with a 1440p OLED panel from LG, according to XDA-Developers.

Everybody loved the old Nexus phones; they weren't the best but they delivered where it counted - value for money and usability.

With July and summers having set in full pace, we're finally starting to see leaks related to Google's upcoming Pixel lineup take place with full swing. Much like many other premium handsets in the market today, the Pixel XL 2 sports very few bezels.

This will allow users to interact with Google Assistant by simply squeezing their device. The easter egg in Android Nougat involves collecting cats, while the previous two Android versions involve a Flappy Bird-style game. My Pixel XL's camera is the primary reason I've held onto it even after the Galaxy S8's release, so I'm just hoping Google doesn't somehow make a misstep for the sequel.
