The Pixel series smartphone were the first devices to emerge with a Google branding last year. They featured the built-in Google Assistant, Daydream VR-compatibility, Google Duo and more. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were launched back in October with sales channelized through online and offline channels.

After a successful rollout of the phones, Google might be working on its next phone in the lineup — Google Pixel 2. The renders for the same have been leaked on a Chinese website- Anzhuo just recently. Though the website doesn’t cite any confirmed sources for the leaked images, we can still get an idea of what to expect from it.

According to these images, Google Pixel 2 will have smaller bezels on the top and bottom of the display. The existing dual-tone design at the back of the Pixel phones has been removed. Instead the phone will feature a glass panel with chamfered edges. The design is quite compact and slim, sporting flat sides with beveled edges and rounded corners.

The renders also hint the return of old software buttons along with the fingerprint sensor and center-aligned camera at the back of the phone. The bottom of the phone has a USB Type-C port and also comes with two slits. The said slits are hinted to have one speaker and a mic, though it might also contain stereo speakers. The 3.5mm headphone jack for the phone has been placed at the top with volume and power controls at the right of the device.

Further, rumors suggest that the smartphone will have a 5-inch 2K display, Qualcomm’s 835 processor along with a 6GB of RAM. Moreover, the phone is also said to have second-generation Daydream VR  and water/dust resistance capabilities of IP67/IP68 ratings. The phone will be released by the second half of the year, with no info on the pricing yet.
