Google’s subsequent Pixel competence demeanour a lot like a aged one

Google is expected going to exhibit a new Pixel and Pixel XL in a entrance months. We’ve already seen an image of a rumored Pixel XL, codenamed Taimen, and now, we’re removing a look during a smaller Pixel follow-up, codenamed Walleye.


Evan Blass during VentureBeat tweeted this picture today:

While it’s somewhat grainy, we can see that a device includes distinguished bezels. This is a conspicuous rejecting of this year’s trend toward scarcely edge-to-edge screens. See Samsung’s Galaxy S8, a rumored Note 8, and a rumored iPhone 8 as examples.

Maybe Google feels it doesn’t need that smart further to make a phone worthwhile. Still, it’s confidant to not minimize a bezels during slightest a small bit, generally deliberation that Google speedy Android developers to tailor their apps for taller screens with opposite aspect ratios than a common 16:9. That said, this is only a leaked image, so it’s probable a association won’t indeed use this pattern when it strictly launches a device.

Blass also points out that Google isn’t including a dual-camera system, that is a trend this year, too. Dual cameras are being featured in lots of new devices, including Andy Rubin’s arriving Essential Phone, a OnePlus 5, a rumored Note 8, and a Motorola Mota Z2 Force, among others.

The stream Pixel and Pixel XL furnish some of a best smartphone photography, essentially by relying on image-processing algorithms, so it isn’t totally startling a association would hang with a singular camera.

Meanwhile, Stephen Hall of 9to5Google reported yesterday that a source tells him both new Pixels will boat but a headphone jack; VentureBeat confirms that, too. Instead, a phones will rest on Bluetooth and USB-C audio. At a same time, though, phone cases have leaked with headphone jack cutouts, so who knows. It’s still early and a leaks are plentiful.
