Google Pixel 2 specs leak online

Spec-sheet details of the next Pixel phones have leaked online, ahead of their appearance on shop shelves later this.

According to a "source familiar with the matter that spent time with at least one of these phones", the standard Pixel 2 will boast 4.97-inch screen with Full HD resolution.

The design will remain "almost identical" to last year's smaller Pixel, XDA Developers reports, with large bezels around the screen.

However in news that's bound to upset some would-be buyers, Google will drop the 3.5mm headphone jack, replacing it with stereo speakers, according to the source.

That means you'll need either a Bluetooth pair of headphones, or those that connect via USB-C, in order to listen on the go.

Inside will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

The larger Pixel XL 2 is codenamed 'Taimen', and has a 5.99-inch OLED screen with 128G of storage.

The bezels (that's the the borders around the display) will be thinner, potentially making the handset smaller overall than the original Pixel XL.

It will have the same processor and RAM as its little brother. Both will run Android O, the next version of Google's mobile operating system.

We're expecting both models of Pixel 2 to launch in the autumn, around the same time as the iPhone 8.

More details will surely leak before then, so stay tuned for more.
