New Google Pixel 2 renders show up - no sign of headphone jack

New Google Pixel 2 renders show up - no sign of headphone jack

But now, we may have just got our first look at the Pixel 2's final design via some images that were posted to a blog called MySmartPrice.

Google's newest Pixel flagship has been a topic for a few weeks now, and we are still receiving new renders and news about the upcoming Google phone (s). Speaking of the rear camera, it now protrudes from the backs of both phones. The phones shown in the renders are said to feature minimal side bezels as compared to the original Pixel and Pixel XL. The USB Type-C port is seen at the bottom, but there's no sight of the 3.5mm audio jack, presumably ditched to make room for the rumoured stereo speakers.

Assuming Google wants to stick to a yearly release schedule for its Pixel line, we should be quickly approaching the announcement of the Pixel 2.

In terms of dimensions, the Pixel 2 is expected to be 145.3 x 69.3 x 7.8 mm, with extra 0.4 mm added to its thickness by the camera bump.

Riyad Mahrez wanted Arsenal transfer previous year - and would've cost just £35m
Mahrez is now in pre-season training with Leicester and Wes Morgan insists the midfielder remains committed to the club. The Sun also claims that Wenger had the chance to sign Mahrez for £35m previous year but didn't make an offer.

Apple has already eliminated the jack for the headphones on his iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 should not re-enter. Going the latter route will result in a more expensive Pixel 2 XL, though. That being all-screen front panels, fingerprint scanner on the rear, a two-tone rear finish and a slightly protruding camera.

Google is busy working on a number of new products and services. Earlier rumours claimed that this time around could offer its flagship in more colours and may include specs like 4GB of RAM, expandable storage of up to 128GB, and Snapdragon 836 chipset.

Around front, the new Pixel phones appear to have tall displays, similar to the Galaxy S8 and G6. Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
