Google’s Pixel event is getting very leaky with Google Home Mini and an updated Google Daydream View headset already leaking. Now it’s the Pixel 2 XL leaking with press renders of the phone in Black & White and ‘Just Black’ showing up.
It seems Google is owning the ‘Panda Nexus’ tag and going with a Black and White colour option this year, although there does appear to be a splash of colour there with a red power button (that looks Hawt!). It will also come in a plain Black which is being referred to as ‘Just Black’ (not so Hawt).
According to Droid-Life who supplied the renders, the phone will be available in both 64GB and 128GB storage options. The 64GB model will cost $849USD (that’s $1059.66AUD at our current exchange rate), while the 128GB model will set you back $949USD (that’s $1184.47AUD).
There’s nothing new in the renders, the camera still appears to jut out a bit and the fingerprint sensor is just below the glass panel. A note is that Google appears to still be going with a monochromatic ‘G’ logo instead of a multi-coloured G.
We’ll see the new Pixel, Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini, updated Daydream View and possibly even a new Chromebook Pixel at the October 4th event. It’s so close you can almost taste it.
Do you like the new colour option?
