Google Pixel 2 Rumored to Come with Always On Display

This image is based on information from sources we deem extremely reliable. No details were given on what it will let users do, but it might be a mini game of some sort.

We rate this rumor a 8 out of 10 on our confidence scale. Additionally, the device also sports a slightly larger camera at the back. And they would be right.

The render of the Google Pixel XL 2 as shared online by Android Police.

Google Pixel XL 2, an upcoming flagship from Google is going to pack the bestest hardware available. Gone is the lower body antenna band (perhaps blended to match the body color?), and the phone doesn't appear to have any noticeable antenna bands anywhere that I can see. Can we dream of a borderless screen for the Google Pixel 2?

The rest include the removed antenna band, the reduced rear glass "window", a wide speaker grille beside the front-facing camera, and a "squeezable frame", just like the HTC U11.

From the look of things, the second-generation Pixel XL will potentially be on par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in terms of design, sporting minimal bezels and a sleek and premium look. In fact, we don't even know if this phone will be called the "Pixel XL". It is also said that the phone will feature an ambient display that is always on, which seems to be in line with an earlier report that suggested that Google could bring this feature to its Pixel phones. We're calling it the "XL" for the sake of ease of understanding here, not because we specifically have information suggesting Google is retaining that naming convention. Hopefully Google's take on this is a little better to use in practice than HTC's - I can't say I was a fan of Edge Sense. Rumors are rife that LG would be manufacturing the Pixel XL 2. Admittedly, it will be somewhat weird for Google to bring such a massive design overhaul to only one of its new devices, but we shouldn't rule out that possibility.
