The internet company fully entered the smartphone business a year ago with the first set of its self-branded Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. The Pixel 2 XL's 64GB variant costs $849 and a staggering $949 for the 128GB variant. The LG-made Pixel 2 XL is expected to pack a 6-inch Quad HD+ screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
Both phones will launch at 5pm United Kingdom time on 4th October. Other specifications is said to include 4GB of RAM; 64 or 128 GB storage options, and 12-megapixel rear camera.
The Google Pixel 2 XL definitely has a taller display compared to its smaller sibling.
Most smartphone series often receive the best updates in their second iteration and Pixel 2 might be the Google device we have been waiting for. This redesign ditches the signature Google pill that hangs to the top left corner of the screen and instead adds the Google search widget to the bottom of the launcher.

The Storm have been making some uncharacteristic errors during the finals, but they will be looking to fix that on Sunday. It led directly to the final try of the game, which ended the season and this trio's 17 years together fittingly.
Popular leaker Evan Blass has just shared the images of Pixel 2 XL encased and without the case. The Pixel 2 XL has nearly the same specs except for the 6-inch screen with QHD+ display resolution, and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The leaked photo hints that the Pixel 2 XL could appear a tad bit similar to the LG G6 with a FullVision display and thin bezels.
Storage configurations can be assumed to be 64GB and 128GB and of course both will have front firing stereo speakers which get a personal thumbs-up from my side.
Google is expected to launch the Pixel 2 on October 19th and the Pixel 2 XL on November 15th, with pre-orders coming before those dates.
While prices will likely be more expensive in the Great White North, Droid Life reports that the Pixel 2 will be priced at $649/$749 United States dollars ($812/$937 CAD) depending on either the 64GB or 128GB variant.
