Google's Pixel 2 is nearly definitely going to ditch the headphone jack

New Information On Pixel 2 And Pixel 2 XL Surfaces

Google is unsurprisingly working on a 2017 generation of Pixel smartphones - which debuted past year with a 5-inch Pixel and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL.

As a result, the smaller Pixel 2 will apparently blend together some of HTC's recent features and omissions. 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. As you can see from the newly leaked image below (blurry as it may be), the top and bottom bezels are still very noticeable. The photographs that can be seen in the gallery below compare the size of the supposed case for the Pixel Xl 2 to the original Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8, as well as the Nexus 6P.

Numerous real-life images depicting a protective case for the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 appeared online on Friday, having originally been shared by a Reddit user who bought one of many unofficial cases for Google's upcoming flagship that have already been listed online.

Freshly leaked case-design renderings of Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have surfaced online via United Kingdom based accessory retailer MobileFun while the internet is abuzz with rumours on the highly-anticipated launch of these smartphones, sometime later this year.

There are talks that the upcoming Google phones could be manufactured by LG and are codenamed as Walleye and Taimen.

This is kind of an obvious expectation given that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are upgrades to the 2016 models. Let us know what do you think about this leaked image by leaving a comment down below.

Additionally, as we've heard in the past, this latest report says that the Pixel 2 will have the ability to squeeze the sides of the phone to interact with the phone in some capacity. We believe that then we have to rely on the USB port.

And Yes, Google is ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack! The handsets will come with the next major release of Google's mobile OS, Android 8.0 O.
