Rumours about Google’s forthcoming Pixel XL 2 are growing increasingly frequent, with a new report divulging a slew of previously unseen information about the flagship Android handset.
‘Reliable’ sources have revealed key details about the Pixel XL 2 to the Google–watchers at Android Police, so much that they’ve been able to create renders of what they believe the device will look like.
Perhaps the most interesting leak centres on plans for a special ‘squeezable’ frame, allowing uses to access Google Assistant and swipe through menus by pressing the side of the device.
Such functionality is already available in HTC’s U11 and has been widely dismissed as a gimmick by critics.
Elsewhere, Google is said to be plotting an improved single lens camera rather than a dual lens effort.
The insider has also confirmed that the Pixel XL 2 will be made for Google by LG, with a 2:1 screen aping the hugely impressive LG G6, released earlier this year.
It is not yet clear when the Pixel XL 2 will hit shelves or how much it will cost, but most likely it will land in the run up to Christmas.
