Pixel Early Render Leaks Reveal Squeezable Edges and Rounded Corners

The Pixel and Pixel XL were highly anticipated devices, but ultimately they were primarily a first-generation, introductory release for Google, and though they weren't wholly-spectacular, we regarded them a "foundational release".

We rate this rumor a 8 out of 10 on our confidence scale. The display is bigger, too, at 6 inches, so there's more screen real estate and thinner bezels. A render provided by Android Police corroborated our report, closely matching the design information we supplied last month. The device also sports a fingerprint scanner at the rear that looks to be identical to the ones found on its predecessor. It gives the next-generation XL a much more modern look, putting it firmly alongside phones like the LG G6 and Galaxy S8 that have sought to increase display size without sacrificing on ergonomics, by lengthening the panel and dramatically reducing the amount of bezel on the front of the device. The below image compares the 2017 Google Pixel with original Pixel phone which is on the left and the Pixel XL on the extreme right. The company is also using a front facing speaker this time (located underneath the earpiece). Among them is the sequel to Google's pair of flagships, the Pixel and its larger counterpart, Pixel XL. However, last year's Pixel and Pixel XL devices have received wonderful reviews and feedback from buyers. We're calling it the "XL" for the sake of ease of understanding here, not because we specifically have information suggesting Google is retaining that naming convention. The model frame will also have a squeezable frame like the HTC U11 to launch Google Assistant and other apps.

Scorsese spent much of his early career working with De Niro, and their collaborations have birthed some of cinema's finest output.

The color is exactly as you would expect from a Pixel phone, with the two tone color combination prominent on the back panel.

This mystery would be solved once Google Pixel 2 attains in the market.
