There will reportedly be both a standard Pixel and an XL version, just like there were a year ago, 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. On the other hand, the GooglePixel XL 2 will be developed by LG. The rumor details that the Pixel 2 XL might get the bezel-less design and other upgrades for a premium price. In fact, it looks like a lot of people are holding back on their purchase decision of buying a Galaxy Note 8, mainly because of all these smartphones launches that are lined up for the coming months. What we didn't tell you was that there could be several differences separating the smaller Pixel 2 and the larger Pixel 2 XL.
Set to hit stores on September 15, Samsung's latest smartphone will feature a large, 6.3-inch Super AMOLED "Infinity Display" with curved edges and minimal bezels at the top and bottom.
It is believed that the larger Pixel XL 2 will benefit from the sort of slimmed down bezels that have become extremely fashionable in the industry. It is believed that this handset will feature squeezable sides that will enable users of the smartphone to access various functionality more conveniently.
With Google having announced the new Android Oreo software, it is expected that the new smartphone will benefit from the system. The launch of Google Pixel 2 will show fans that the device bears other useful features, too.
The Korean giant is going to introduce its new V30 flagship smartphone in a week, and all the leaks have pointed towards a device with drastically small front bezels and a curvy design. Moreover, the upcoming Google Pixel flagships are also expected to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack just like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Whether this accessory would be bundled with the Pixel 2 as a matter of course remains to be seen, but it does sound like an interesting feature. Google was earlier rumored to be preparing a pair of headphones that could fire up Google Assistant and effortlessly pair with your device so perhaps removing the jack was a way of forcing consumers to make a headphone purchase down the road.

A source close to Google has also suggested that the Pixel 2 will attract a higher recommended retail price than previous releases.
