CAD Renders of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Align with Previous Leaks and Rumors

There has been quite a lot of leaks in regards to the Google Pixel 2 XL, although we haven’t heard much about the smaller successor to the Google Pixel. Our sources indicated that there wouldn’t be that much of a difference between the original Pixel and the Pixel 2, suggesting the Pixel 2 XL is actually the one to receive the most changes. Today though, we get to see what are said to be renders of both the upcoming Google Pixel 2 as well as the Pixel 2 XL.

These CAD renders come from none other than @OnLeaks and his collaboration with MySmartPrice, and that is something to take note of. These renders have been created thanks to CAD dimension specs from one of his sources. So we could see a difference in materials used, specific placement, etc. Also note that these are early and like the Moto Z2 Force CAD renders he leaked, he got it wrong when it came to the 3.5mm headphone port.

These should always be considered rumors as nothing is confirmed until the company makes their official announcement. With that said, even the regular Pixel 2 looks to have considerably less bezels than its predecessor. We can see two front-facing speakers with the sensors above the earpiece and the front-facing camera to the left. There doesn’t seem to be a 3.5mm headphone port on the top or the bottom, so be prepared for that possibility.

Shifting our focus to the Pixel 2 XL CAD renders we can see even slimmer top and bottom bezels with a highly pronounced 2.5D glass curve around the edges. This render shows front-facing speakers as well, with the same sensor and front camera placement as the smaller version. We don’t see a 3.5mm headphone port on this device either, which is sure to ruffle a lot of people’s feathers — then again, it’s always best to wait to be sure. Both devices have the redesigned back glass that stops before the fingerprint scanner (like our original report had claimed), but it looks like the back camera and flash placements are different for each device. The device also bears resemblance to Android Police’s render mockup, though some elements have shifted places.


Let us know your thoughts on these early CAD renders for the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL.
