• Android Police: This is the 2017 Pixel XL



    One final leak to close out the week, and it's a fairly big one: according to Android Police this is an accurate render of the device that has been given the codename taimen, otherwise known as the 2017 Pixel XL. Or possibly Pixel 2 XL? AP doesn't yet know what the actual product name will be.

    Key aspects of the new phone's design include much smaller bezels all around (as is the style of the time), a 2:1 screen aspect ratio, a larger camera lens assembly and a squeezable frame. This HTC gimmick might seem odd on an LG-made device, but there is evidence that Google has been working on this idea for years; for all we know they could have licensed their patent to HTC.

    A separate but equally reliable source has supposedly leaked the specs to XDA:

    Snapdragon 835 processor
    5.99 inch 1440p OLED display
    4 GB RAM / 128 GB storage
    Single rear camera with dual LED flash

    Expect the price to be almost prohibitively expensive, as is also the style of the time...

      That looks much better than the current Pixel.

      My main gripe with the 1st Gen Google Pixel, besides lack of MicroSD support was the styling.
