Check out the latest concept video of the Pixel XL 2

Ricky, 18 July 2017

Last week, Android Police posted confidently about a render that is almost certainly representative of the Google Pixel XL 2. This render was taken by Concept Creator on YouTube, where a minute-and-a-half video of a fully-rendered Pixel XL 2 shows off the phone’s supposed exterior design, complete with the 18:9 aspect ratio display and glass window on the back.

The video render really gives substance behind the leaked image. Given that the Pixel XL 2 will supposedly be made by LG, the round, yet blocky curves around the edges of the phone are quite reminiscent of the LG G6’s body. In addition, the large Full Vision display on the front really brings the look together.

On the back, there are a couple of ‘pins’ under the round dual-flash setup. Concept-wise, these could hold some kind of piggy-back accessory along the likes of the 360-camera that would become available with the Essential PH-1. Though, we wouldn’t hold our breath for that.

With the Pixel XL’s arguably pedestrian design, the Pixel XL 2 is shaping up to be quite the looker. We particularly like the red and black color combo, though we doubt Google will ever offer something like this. Google, if you’re reading this, the red and black render is the answer to Apple’s Red iPhone 7 Plus.

The Pixel XL 2 is expected to be announced and/or unveiled sometime between Q3 and Q4 of this year. The Pixel XL 2 is expected to feature a 5.99-inch 18:9 OLED display and powered by a Snapdragon 835 chipset. In addition, the Pixel XL 2 is rumored to have an always-on display feature and a pressure-sensitive frame akin HTC’s current-gen flagship: the HTC U11

Lol then why Google Pixel takes very good photos when it have small sensors

But hey, the little Pixel gets front-facing stereo speakers, while the XL will settle for a contemporary HTC speaker setup

Huh? S5 had the MicroSD card. It was the terrible S6 that dropped it, and the waterproofing that the S5 carried
