Google Officially Announces Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

Finally, Google has announced the much-awaited Pixel 2 phones and again, the company has tried to shatter all the past records with these two smartphones. Unlike last year, when the Pixel and Pixel XL have differed only by screen size, resolution, and battery capacity, this time Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have so many things which are different from each other.

Talking about the design, both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL seems to have a similar design pattern on the rear side, like the first generation models. However, there are several noticeable changes on the front side, be it the display resolution, aspect ratio or bezels. On Pixel 2, the bezels are comparatively larger than the previous generation Pixel but this is not the case with Pizel 2 XL, as its bezels are very small as compared to the previous generation Pixel XL.
