As per the benchmark posting, the Pixel XL 2 will don a 5.6-inch show with an incredible resolution of 2,560 x 1,312 pixels, which could mean an 18:9 perspective proportion like the LG G6. The Google Pixel XL2 will be using an "octa core CPU @2.4GHz", which describes the latest Snapdragon 835 along with 4GM RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The phone is also expected to come with a 7MP front-facing camera that can also record in 4K.
When it comes to photography, the new Pixel smartphone does not seem to differ much from the current models, which at the time received the highest rating for a camera phone ever from the independent DxOMark. However, the one thing we've heard in the past is that the phone will come in not two, but rather three variants - Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel XL 2 and Google Pixel XXL.
Google will release flagships in the Pixel lineup later this year, maybe in September or October. "If we factor the navigation bar into the size calculation too, we think the Pixel XL 2 tested in this benchmark actually has a 5.7" panel.
Google Pixel 2's recently leaked image suggests for a almost bezel-free screen design of the handset. However, it's still almost an 18:9 aspect ratio (technically it's 1.95:1), something that seems to be trending quite heavily.
On the other hand, it's also possible that the Snapdragon 836 will be exclusive to the Galaxy Note 8 for a while, which would leave the Pixel XL 2 with the Snapdragon 835. Otherwise, the Pixel phone is expected to ship with the upcoming Android O version when it is launched later this year. There is some doubt on whether Google will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack on Google Pixel 2 though there have been no reports to suggest otherwise. A new phone from Google.
The Google Pixel XL 2 had Android 7.1.1 Nougat running, but users can expect the Android O, also known as the Android 8.0, out of the box for this device.
