Google Pixel 2 render leaks, shows bezel-less display and dual rear camera setup

Looks like Google will be following the footsteps of Samsung with its upcoming Pixel successor, likely to be called Pixel 2. Based on a new smartphone render spotted by Android Headlines website, the alleged Pixel 2 is seen as having a nearly bezel-less design. There are no bezels on the sides, but they are visible on the top and the bottom. This is the same design as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagship smartphones have.
The rendered image also shows the smartphone from the back, highlighting a dual rear camera and LED flash. The back panel sports the same look as the current Pixel smartphones – half metal and half glass. The dual rear cameras are expected to include two 16MP modules, while the front-facing camera will have an 8MP sensor.
It’s speculated that Google Pixel 2 will be powered by Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 836 processor.Nothing else has been mentioned.
Google has already confirmed that the successors to Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones will be launching later this year. Earlier this year at MWC 2017, the company’s senior vice president Rick Osterloh confirmed the news. It was also mentioned that the handsets will stick to their premium segment pricing.
Back in March, a report mentioned that the upcoming Pixel smartphones may go the way of Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus by ditching the 3.5mm audio jack. This indicates that the smartphones could be thinner than their predecessors.
Google is said to have invested $880 million in LG Display to source OLED displays for Pixel 2 (and presumably Pixel XL 2). We can also expect an upgraded Google Pixel at the launch.
A new version of Pixel launcher was spotted at Google’s I/O 2017 conference by 9to5Google website. It has the search bar located at the bottom, below the dock on the homescreen. As per the leak , the new search bar also has a semi-transparent Grey color instead of a solid White look.
