With the trend of bezel-less designs for smartphones such as the iPhone 8, Galaxy Note 8, and even for Xperia phones, the #Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will also follow this hot trend.

According to a report by VaeWalk, these smartphones will come in a selection of vibrant color schemes. Looking at the leaked photos of the smartphone, there will be four different colors: Red, green, purple, and blue.

The Google smartphones will come with a refined glass back unlike the first released Pixel phone. Pixel 2 XL will have a more premium design with thinner borders around the display. There were also rumors that the Google flagship phones will not come with headphone ports. With Apple releasing the iPhone 7 with no headphone port, Google might do the same thing as well.

To improve the user's experience

However, even if Google does remove the 3.5mm headphone port, there are rumors that the company is also improving the video and audio experience of their flagship phone with improved stereo speakers.

This would make for a much nicer experience when watching videos.

There were also rumors that Google is developing a pair of Bluetooth headphones for the new series. With the removal of the 3.55 headphone ports, it will make it easier for Google to make these new devices water and dust resistant too.

Google smartphones will come with Snapdragon 836. This chipset is a step higher than Galaxy Note 8's Snapdragon 835, so everyone should expect a stronger and faster phone.

When will it be released?

Although there is no official announcement yet, Google is expected to release the two new phones in the coming months.
