Google has been teasing the heck out of their sophomore-generation flagship, the Google Pixel 2. And now that Apple has announced the iPhone X, doubtless the company’s grandest (and most expensive) iPhone yet, the stakes are at an all-time high.

The official announcement date of the new flagship is still a couple of weeks away, but leaks are already popping up left-and-right. The best, and perhaps most accurate are unveiled today via DroidLife, who teases both the Google Pixel 2 and its bigger sibling Google Pixel 2 XL.

Check them out here:

On this post, we’re breaking down the specs, pricing, and everything we know so far about the new Google smartphone.


Pricing has never been more crucial than before. Both the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 sport a $1,000 price tag, and for competing brands to one-up this move they’d need to bring something truly special in whichever price they choose to ship.

Luckily, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL ship in a sub-$1K pricetag. The Pixel 2 starts at $649 and the Pixel 2 XL starts at $849.


Below are the rumored spec sheet for both the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, manufactured by HTC and LG respectively.
