Google Pixel 2 might not look like other flagship phones

Since there has been no official confirmation regarding specs of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 from Google, take everything with a pinch of salt. Furthermore, the Pixel 2 XL could follow the HTC U11 in coming up with a pressure-sensitive frame that allows users to interact with the edges by applying different amounts of pressures on the edges. As in previous years, the company will also be launching new "showcase" devices for its OS, and for Android O, those devices will be the successors to its Pixel and Pixel XL, which launched with Android 7.1 Nougat last year.

With no headphone jack and a seemingly generic design that is reminiscent of last year's models, it does not look like Google and HTC are making essential efforts to make the Pixel 2 as dazzling as possible. As a result, some current owners of the Google Nexus 6P are trying to figure out whether it'll be a great moment to finally concede that the Nexus family is no more and make the switch to the incoming Google Pixel 2 or rather Pixel 2 XL.

The aforementioned Moto Z2 Force has moved onto this trending feature and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 will also feature a dual-lens camera on the back, but for Google, the only expected change is a camera lens that is housed in a much bigger hole. Both the 2017 Pixel phones will be having a better camera, and that's something really interesting. The renderings for the Pixel 2 are expected to be accurate as well. Unlike last year's Pixel XL, this year's model seemed more, let's just say, in fashion.

And Yes, Google is ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack! We believe that then we have to rely on the USB port.

The bad news is that while there are a couple new features included with this Pixel 2, there's one notable missing feature, too.
