Google announced Pixel 2 XL along with the Pixel 2 yesterday at an event in San Francisco. We were live at the event and got our hands on the phone. Let’s check out the design and specifications of the Pixel 2 XL in this photo gallery.
The Pixel 2 XL is the larger of the newly announced Pixel phones. It sports a 6-inch (2880 x 1440 pixels) Quad HD+ pOLED display with 100% DCI-P3 coverage, 100000:1 super contrast ratio, 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The top and bottom bezels are big, however the display takes up a large part of the overall handset, making it almost same as the first-generation Pixel XL with a 5.5-inch screen. An 8MP front camera is present on the top.
Running Android 8.0 (Oreo), the phone is powered by Octa-Core Snapdragon 835 Mobile Platform. It has 4GB RAM and comes with 64GB / 128GB internal storage. The phone comes with Always-On Display and will constantly listen to the music around you and identify the song at the bottom of the Always-On Display.
The power button and volume rockers are present on the right. The phone measures 157.9 x 76.7 x 7.9mm and weighs 175g.
The bottom of the phone houses USB Type C port. The Pixel 2 does not come with a headphone jack and you will have to rely on USB Type-C powered wired headphones.
There is a 12.2MP rear camera with LED flash, OIS, EIS, f/1.8 aperture, 1.4μm pixel size, laser + dual pixel phase detection and 4K video recording. The phone has an aluminum unibody with hybrid coating. It has a 3,520mAh battery with fast charging support.
