This particular detail indicates that at least some phone accessory manufacturers still don't have access to official product specifications of the Google Pixel 2 lineup and the information suggested by their listings may not be legitimate, not to mention that their cases may not actually fit the devices.
As you can see from the image, those subtle design tweaks are the shrinking of the back glass plate to above the fingerprint reader, rather than engulfing it as it did past year.
As a result, the smaller Pixel 2 will apparently blend together some of HTC's recent features and omissions. But there is no denying that the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL have one of the best smartphone cameras out there and hence, probably Google went with the same sensors. The Pixel 2 still looks to my eyes like a smartphone designed past year compared to Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 renderings seen recently. As for the Pixel 2 variant, you still get a 5-inch display screen, but this will mean the phone gets a lower price tag as well compared to the high-end model.
What are your thoughts on the Pixel 2? Last time we talked about the Galaxy Note 8 was when an image was leaked earlier this week. Are the dual front-facing speakers worth the loss of the 3.5mm headphone jack? Yes, the image which you below is said to be of the upcoming Pixel 2 and well, it looks nothing like what we were expecting it would look like. Still, it's not like the Pixel 3 will come back to the traditional jack, especially since the market trend seems to favor the new USB-C port for audio connectivity.
As usual with new Google phones, the upcoming pair will be the first to ship with the newest OS in town - Android O. The tech giant will be releasing the OS in a few weeks' time, where the current Pixels and Nexus devices will be the first to receive the OTA updates. And yes, it does indeed look very much like last year's Pixel, only with a couple of design tweaks, a feature addition or two, and a feature subtraction.
