Google Pixel 2 XL concept shows front-facing speakers and minimal display

While we anxiously await for the Google Pixel 2 to see if the design will stick to what we know with the first generation Pixel devices or take inspiration from the Galaxy S8, a new concept of the device has surfaced online.

Many expect the Pixel 2 to follow the S8’s bezel-less design and naturally the question arises as to what will happen to the front-facing speakers that were a hit with the first Pixel. The concept suggests that the Pixel 2 will retain the front-facing speakers but also significantly reduce the front bezels to maximize the screen.

The fingerprint sensor still remains in the same place and comes in several color variants, of which Blue, Red and Silver are shown off in the provided video. There’s no dual camera as suspected to feature on the Note 8 and seems to remain otherwise similar to the first generation Pixel.

The two devices are expected to ship with the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC, and could see 6GB of RAM. Android O will come pre-installed on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The new Pixel devices are expected to accompany the public release of Android O, which is expected to be around October or November later this year.
