Google’s Pixel 2 smartphones could arrive in a little over a month, according to prolific leak source Evan Blass. The Pixel 2 phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 mobile system-on-a-chip, Blass claims, and based on previous rumors, these devices look like a solid follow-up to Google’s debut premium Pixel phones.
Google’s second-generation Pixel handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC’s, will be unveiled on October 5th.

There will reportedly be both a standard Pixel and an XL version, just like there were last year, with thinner bezels up front surrounding a screen with a narrower 2:1 aspect ratio, like the one found on the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6. The 6-inch AMOLED display on the larger XL model will be provided by LG, per reports, and the smaller device will be more of an entry-level offering when compared to last year, where they were basically indistinguishable save for their size.
The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are rumored to be built for Google by HTC and LG, respectively. They’re rumored to have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a squeezable frame, a la HTC U11. No headphone jack, unfortunately. The Pixel 2 XL’s screen will be a bit bigger than the Pixel 2’s screen, but we don’t know the exact dimensions yet.
