The oh-so-controversial Google Pixel 2 has leaked in the flesh. It’s only a development model, as evidenced by the sea of stickers, but it should give us a clear idea of what to expect from the final hardware.
On the back you’ll find a glass panel just like the original, but it’s far smaller this time around. It also has smooth rounded edges, allegedly giving it a much nicer feel in the hand. The flash now has dual LEDs and the fingerprint sensor is in the traditional location.
On the front you’ll find the huge bezels that people have been talking about. With bezels shrinking in size every year, and with some phones dumping bezels entirely, it’s very strange to see beefy bezels on a brand new device. However, a big benefit of these big bezels is the dual front-facing speakers. People who miss their HTC M8 may like this device a lot.
The design may be polarizing, especially since it’s missing a 3.5mm headphone jack, but it’s an intriguing device nonetheless. Let us know what you think!
