But today, the famous Evan Blass, tech blogger, and leak expert, has shared a clear image for us and this is the best look yet at the Pixel 2 XL. Pricing could start from $799 for this XL variant with 64GB storage option, and $899 is expected for the 128GB variant. With that in mind, it comes as no surprise at all that the Pixel 2 XL which will be introduced on that occasion has been leaked today.

Otherwise, the two phones are quite similar, at least on paper: 4GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of storage, and 12-megapixel primary rear cameras, along with front-firing stereo speakers.

Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will also ship with Android 8.0 Oreo, as well as a newer version of the Pixel launcher.

On October 4, Google will host their second hardware event which would serve as the launchpad for the second-gen Pixel phones and other "Made by Google" devices which might include a smaller Google Home.

Google's official Pixel 2 launch is set to kick off tomorrow but it seems a few more details about the phones have hit the web ahead of time. Unlike past year, both phones have front-firing stereo speakers and be waterproof, according to several leaks. It sports a 18:9 aspect ratio.

In 2 days time, Google is expected to announce the next generation of their flagship Android handsets. Google's rival - Amazon is also constantly apprising about its new echo devices.

While the Pixel 2 will ship to customers on Thursday, October 19, the Pixel 2 XL won't reach its first buyers until Wednesday, November 15, reports VentureBeat, citing a person familiar with Google's release plans.

However, while the display no longer looks disappointing, the lack of dual cameras on the Google Pixel 2 XL is indeed going to dishearten many users. Where the Pixel 2 XL will be sporting a QHD + display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
