Google Pixel XL 2 To Sport A 5.99-Inch Display

New Google Pixel 2 rumors reveal specs, interesting design tweaks for 'walleye' & 'taimen'

Now, via a source close to XDA-Developers who has apparently spent time with an upcoming Pixel device, we're getting a clearer picture as to what to expect this fall from the search giant.

Reports indicate that the Google Pixel 2 smartphone would come out with a 5 inched display, which would be the same as last years' phone.

Interestingly enough, LG is said to provide the display panels for the Pixel 2 line, which aligns with reports of Google investing at least $880 for OLED screens.

This larger, Google Pixel XL 2 smartphone would feature an LG OLED display.

At UCLA, Ball averaged 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game in 35.1 minutes per game. But Lonzo has a lot to show and prove as a springboard for what the Ball brothers can do.

Meanwhile, another rumor suggests that the smaller Walleye will have the Snapdragon 835 chip from Qualcomm powering it, and will come with 4GB of RAM and a 64GB memory option. A new leak offers some plausible details. We don't know whether this is indicative of a Nexus return, though LG has produced several Nexus devices in the past, and these devices don't seem to be quite as similar as the Pixel and Pixel XL did. However, the smaller Pixel will still retain the chunky bezels and will also pack in a stereo speakers at the front. But HTC and LG will each build a Pixel phone, including the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, respectively.

The Google Pixel 2 series was initially rumored to be released as a triad, with one device being a 5-inch device, another sporting a 5.5-inch display and the last being a 6-inch behemoth of a device. Two of the most eagerly awaited ones are the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel XL 2.

For the smaller "walleye", surprisingly, the device will remain almost identical in looks to the current Pixel and will arrive with a 4.97-inch 1080p display. The only other tidbit we were able to glean from the code is that all three Pixel devices, whatever they are, will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset, the same found in Samsung's Galaxy S8 range. However, the glass window is placed near the top and not encloses the fingerprint scanner like what previous reports said. Stay tuned with us for more updates on the gen-next Google Pixel smartphones.

The XDA report stated that the data on the two Pixel 2 devices was provided by a trusted source, which has provided accurate leaks on other devices in the past. From the look of things, Google dropped the midsized smartphone, choosing "Taimen" over it instead. There's also rumblings that Google will launch a cheaper variant with slimmed down specs in order to tempt the more budget-conscious users.
