As the official #Release Date of the next-generation Google #Pixel Xl gets nearer every day, rumors about the next flagship smartphone are slowly becoming facts, at least according to a report by Android Police. They are fairly confident that the information they have gathered about the next Pixel XL came from a highly reliable source.

According to Android Police’s sources, the 2017 version of the #Google Pixel Xl will be manufactured by LG. In addition, it will also sport a display with minimal bezel. However, there is no information available about the smaller Google Pixel.

Please note that features mentioned here are not confirmed by Google and may change when the actual smartphone device is finally announced.

The Google Pixel design

The 2017 Google Pixel XL might have borrowed some of the design elements from its predecessor but with a few differences.

For one, the fingerprint scanner will be placed outside the glass window instead of inside because the window itself has become smaller in size compared to the 2016 version.

The design concept of the next flagship also shows that there will be no more antenna band on its lower part of its chassis, or perhaps the antenna colors are matched with the phone itself this time around.

LG may have also given the next Google Flagship a modern look by adapting LG G6’s rounded corners with minimal bezel. Its screen will boast a 6-inch AMOLED display with a 2:1 aspect ratio. This will allow the smartphone to have more screen real estate but on a much smaller body.

This design aesthetic was proven quite popular with the release of the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8.

Lastly, there are rumors that the next Google flagship will also have a squeezable feature, much like on the HTC U11. This means that by squeezing the device, users will be able to interact with it such as launching the Google Assistant.

What about the price and release date?

Unfortunately, there is no word regarding the next Pixel XL’s price or official release date. Furthermore, the name Pixel XL is not yet even confirmed. In other words, Google might give their next flagship a totally different name when they decide to reveal it. However, the word “Pixel” might stick around, just with variations such as Pixel XL 2 or even Pixel 2 XL.

For those who prefer to experience pure Android, the next Google flagship should be the perfect device. Stay tuned for more updates.
