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?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Did anyone else see the tv ad last night? It’s the same as the video they released a little while ago.


Still single camera?? That’s not aligned with other premium phones.


LG better ramp up the V30 production lines – they could have a hit on their hands unless this comes bundled with something pretty spectacular to justify that $200+ overprice.

And it’s been beaten with the ugly stick.


I really like that white/black colour option. Will probably get that when it’s released.
