Google is expected to release the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones Wednesday and many details about the smartphone have already surfaced. It remains to be seen whether the devices will be formidable opponents for competitor smartphones, such as the iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8. However, many are anxious to discover which details about the devices are accurate and which were just rumors. Here’s what we know about the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, days before their official announcement.

Pixel 2 Specs

The Pixel 2, codenamed “Walleye,” is rumored to be manufactured by HTC. Specs expected for the device include a 4.97-inch FullHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, 4GB RAM, 64GB and 128GB internal storage options, a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel or 8-megapixel front camera and a 2,700mAh battery. The smartphone may also include a USB-C port and an IP68 water resistance rating.

Pixel 2 XL Specs

The Pixel 2 XL, codenamed “Taimen,” is rumored to be manufacturer by LG. Specs expected for the device include a 6-inch QuadHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip, 4GB and 6GB RAM options, 64GB and 128GB internal storage options, a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel or 8-megapixel front camera and a 3,520mAh battery.

Other Features

In step with prior Google devices, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are expected to be the first handsets to run the latest stock software, Android 8.1 Oreo, out of the box. This version will include the Google Lens AI search engine, which was showcased during Google I/O.

Other software features may include an Always-on display and an Active Edge. The latter feature would allow users to activate Google Assistant by squeezing the sides of the handset. This feature may be specific to the Pixel 2 as it’s derived from HTC’s Edge Sense squeezing feature.

Other recently reported rumors suggest the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL may include a Portrait Mode camera app feature, which would allow users to capture images with sharp foregrounds and blurred backgrounds. The device may also include a feature called “Music Recognition,” which would be able to identify song details, such as the title and artist when music is played out loud.

Some potential design features on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL include front-facing, dual-stereo speakers, and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. The devices likely won’t include a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Color options for the Pixel 2 will likely include “Just Black,” “Clearly White,” and “Kinda Blue.” The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to come in “Just Black,” but may also be available in a black and white model, whose name has not been revealed.
