Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the company’s anticipated next-generation Pixel devices, have been leaked in full merely a day ahead of the official launch. Prolific tipster Evan Blass aka @evleaks shared images of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL which show the handsets in their full glory. Based on preliminary leaks, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are said to be manufactured by HTC and LG respectively.

The leaked images confirm that the new Pixel 2 XL will follow the lead of 18:9 aspect ratio displays, and it will be the biggest highlight of the handset. The Pixel 2, on the other hand, will come with a 5-inch full-HD display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The leaked images suggest that both the handsets will sport dual speakers at the front – one above and another below the display. The home screen seems to have also received a slight revamp, and includes calendar details such as a scheduled meeting alongside weather, and time information. Unlike the original Pixel and Pixel XL, the new Pixel hardware seems to have received a complete overhaul when it comes to the rear panel, as per a report by VentureBeat. The back panel will sport a glass at the top part though this year it has been painted in solid colours. The leaked images tip that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will come in two colour combinations Black for the top part, and White for the bottom part at the back of the handset.

A separate report claims pricing for the new Pixel hardware. According to Droid Life, the Pixel will be priced at $649 (roughly Rs. 42,000) for the 64GB and $749 (roughly Rs. 49,000) for the 128GB version. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, will be priced at $849 (roughly Rs. 55,750) and $949 (roughly Rs. 62,250) for the 64GB and 128GB versions respectively.
