The US-based tech giant Google is all set to release the latest edition and the successor of the Google Pixel which was a massive hit among the tech enthusiasts since it was launched in 2016. And as the release date of the new version of the Google Pixel looking more and more imminent, countless leaks and renders have started appearing on the internet. Among them, the most notable are the ones which indicate that the Google Pixel’s 2017 model will neither feature any 3.5 mm headphone nor a dual-camera setup-which are essential aspects of the modern day smartphones.
Evan Blass, eminent leakster, shared a render picture of the upcoming Google Pixel’s 2017 model which is also known as the Google Pixel 2 which indicates that the device will come with a wide bezel just like the previous year’s version, opposing the rumors of featuring a narrow and sleeker design. As we mentioned earlier there will be no 3.5 mm headphone jack in the handset, a move first taken by the biggest rival of the company Apple in their latest flagship. Instead, the California-based search giant will be using other connectivity accessories to fill the void.
The leak was first published in an article on Venture Beat, and according to the same article, Taiwanese tech conglomerate HTC is going to manufacture the smaller version of the Google Pixel 2. And HTC is going to introduce the EdgeSense and BoomSound (front facing stereo speakers) to the upcoming handset. However, another famous feature of the company, the edge-to-edge display won’t be incorporated into the series just yet.
On the other hand, the bigger variant, the Google Pixel XL 2 will be manufactured by the Korean tech giant LG, and it is expected the manufacturers will implement the narrow bezel design in this particular series, just like their flagship LG G6.
