A new set of leaked photos showcase the new Google Pixel 2 smartphone and it claims that the company is going with a fully bezel less display. Pricing is still said to be $649 for the 64GB Pixel 2 and $749 for the 128GB model, with the Pixel 2 XL jumping to $849 for the 64GB and $949 for the 128GB. It seems to have a taller display compared to the Pixel 2.

Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are expected to run Qualcomm's top-end Snapdragon 835 processor and will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. Here are images of the Pixel 2 (see photo below) and Pixel 2 XL (see photo above) made by HTC and LG.

Moreover, the market is already overflowing with dual camera phones but both of the Pixel phones are expected to come with a single camera.

Of most note in the render is the new Pixel Launcher that shows Google has some changes in store for us.

This is for the first time we're hearing about the "Ultra Pixel" smartphone, which according to rumours will be directly pitted against the Apple iPhone X. According to Maini, Google Ultra Pixel will feature a dual-camera setup and a new "kind of" fingerprint scanner.

Russian Federation might be trying to get involved in back-channel diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington, the sources said. In response, the North Korean leader warned Washington of the "highest level of hard-line countermeasure in history".

Google will unveil its new smartphones the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on October 4 however these phones may arrive in India earlier than expected.

Google have revealed a 35 second teaser video on YouTube where they appear to point out the failings of other devices, suggesting that they will be addressing these problems with their own handsets. And the Google Pixel 2 XL will be in-line with most of the 2017 flagship smartphones with an 18:9 display and thin bezels on top and bottom.

The images of Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL look very similar to the original model, except the Pixel XL has a double coloured back panel which is a disproportional mix of black and white. The standard sized Pixel 2 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display running in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

It's not clear how it will actually work at the moment or if it will have more features, and we probably won't know until Wednesday.
