After Apple and Samsung unveiled their flagship devices for the year 2017—the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8, respectively—it’s now Google’s turn to take center stage as the search engine giant finally unveiled their most highly anticipated devices, the PIXEL 2 and Pixel XL 2, in an event that was held on Wednesday October 4.

Will the new phones also sport the 18:9 aspect ratio screen display being boasted by other brands? Read below to see if all the leaks and rumors about the devices, which circulated around the internet prior to the event, were true.

The difference between the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2

Under the hood, both devices are pretty much the same.

Both handsets sport the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset from Qualcomm and the Adreno 430 GPU, in addition to having the same 64GB and 128GB on-board storage options. Both devices now come with water resistance with a rating of IP67. That’s where their similarities end.

The smaller Pixel 2 has a five-inch OLED 1920 x 1080 screen display with the conventional 16:9 aspect ratio. On the other hand, its big brother sports a six-inch P-OLED 2880 x 1440 screen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Due to its bigger size, the Pixel XL 2 has a 3520 mAh battery to power up its bigger display, while the Pixel 2 has a much smaller 2700 mAh battery.

Say goodbye to the headphone jack

This might be the deal breaker for some people, as Google decided to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from their flagship devices.

This means that music aficionados will have to rely on wireless headphones or use USB Type-C adapters.

However, there is some good news, as the bigger XL 2 now boasts two front-facing stereo speakers—a feature that almost faded into obscurity after being introduced by the HTC M7 several years ago.

The design and other features

If you look at the back of the devices, there haven't been any significant changes compared to last year’s flagships, except for the smaller glass panel, which now doesn’t cover the fingerprint scanner.

One notable feature of both devices is the smarter Always-On Display. The Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are capable of recognizing the music being played within the area and can show some details of the song via the Always-On Display. This is a nifty feature because now you can know the title of the song you like that you’ve been hearing on your commute. Just let your device hear the song and it will instantly tell you the title.
