Released are new images of the Google Pixel XL 2

This image is based on information from sources we deem extremely reliable. That now seemingly appears to be a reality, thanks to the early render leaked by Android Police.

We rate this rumor a 8 out of 10 on our confidence scale. Still, we are exceptionally confident that this image represents the overall look and feel of Google's new smartphone, even if some small elements may not end up being representative of the final product. And they would be right.

XDA-Developers has also obtained information about the upcoming Pixel XL's software feature set, which we'll detail below, from a source familiar with the matter. Let's believe that your phone is idle and locked and you want to search something within milliseconds. It's possible they're just cleverly hidden - I wouldn't hold my breath on a completely "bandless" phone. Can we dream of a borderless screen for the Google Pixel 2? It's said that you'll be able to squeeze the Pixel XL 2017 to launch Google Assistant when the screen is on or off. You may also be able to perform other actions by squeezing the frame, like silencing incoming calls.

Well, this is all coming together quite nicely, I'd say.

The rest include the removed antenna band, the reduced rear glass "window", a wide speaker grille beside the front-facing camera, and a "squeezable frame", just like the HTC U11. As to the headphone jack, we're not really sure what the status of that is, unfortunately. It is interesting as the rumors claim that LG will be the ones making the phone, even though HTC was the first to debut such a hardware feature.

We have no information on pricing or an exact release date at this time.

In other words, it shouldn't be much of a stretch to think it can achieve the no. 1 spot in DxOMark like what the original Pixel did. So albeit indirectly, it was suggested that the upcoming Pixel smartphones, which will be running Android O, would sport this feature.
