Google is reportedly preparing to launch the Pixel 2 or Pixel XL 2 and already revealed specifications for the larger of the two are circulating on the net. Currently, the Google is planning one of the devices, which has just appeared on GFXBench.
According to the GFXBench spotted by WinFuture, it seems that the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 will feature a screen size of 5.7 inches and an unusual resolution of 2560 x 1312. This means that the upcoming smartphone will be coming with an aspect ratio of 16:9 that is against the approach which competitors have adopted for their devices.
A Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM pairing is also rumored to be seen in the smartphone, but because the Galaxy Note8 has also been rumored to be the first phone to be powered by a Snapdragon 836, the same SoC might be present in the Google Pixel XL 2, resulting in more performance. The Google Pixel XL 2 is also said to come with Android 8.0 running, but at this point of time, the GFXBench sheet shows Android 7.1.1 running, as reported GSM Arena.
On the camera front, the device is expected to feature a 12MP rear camera and a 7MP front shooter, but there are no signs of a dual-camera configuration. However, this does not mean that these details cannot change as time moves on. There are also rumors that the Google Pixel XL 2 will boast a dual-camera to challenge the likes of the iPhone 8, Galaxy Note 8 and several other devices expected to be announced during the second half of this year, so the best smartphones for the year are yet to be unveiled.
There are no images of the Google Pixel XL 2 at this time, but they will surely arrive in the near future as we get closer to the phone's launch. Other rumors around online predict that the Pixel next will sport a glass and metal rear panel and probably ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack this time.
