Renowned leaker Evan Blass has published on his Twitter page a new render of the Google Pixel 2 XL. It'll reportedly cost $849 for the 64GB version and $949 for the 128GB model.

From the looks of things, you're better off purchasing the larger Pixel 2 XL as it will have several differences separating it and the 2016 lineup courtesy of the latest leaked image. According to leaks, other specifications of the Pixel series will include: Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64/128GB storage and 12MP rear camera. VentureBeat also reports that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will sport different launch dates, with the Pixel 2 being available on October 19th, and the Pixel 2 XL coming on November 15th. But there is a high chance that Google takes us as a surprise and launch its first bezel-less display phone.

Photos of Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have once again appeared online, this time just a day before they're due to be unveiled.

The leaked images confirmed that the new Pixel 2 XL's biggest feature shall be 18:9 aspect ratio displays.

In 2 days time, Google is expected to announce the next generation of their flagship Android handsets.

It's expected to feature a 6-inch, 2,880 x 1,440 display and slightly slimmer bezels than the original XL, which was widely criticised for its rather plain design. 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. More may be revealed so we'll be right there anticipating for the tech event. According to the image, both the smartphones do not seem to have the dual camera setup, which is surprising since most premium mobiles have that feature now. The former might be sold at $649 (64GB) and $749 (128GB) starting from October 19.

Google will be streaming the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launch live on October 4 on their YouTube channel.
