Introduction

Google announced their next-gen Pixel smartphones at their media event, with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL now official we have all the details on the smaller and larger versions of Google's flagship smartphones.

Pixel 2 rocks a near identical look to the previous-gen Pixel, while Pixel 2 XL receives a facelift. We have a 6-inch display on Pixel 2 XL, up from the 5.5-inch display on the original Pixel XL smartphone. Pixel 2 XL's huge display takes up most of the front of the phone, and while it's not a full edge-to-edge display, it has tiny bezels at the top.

Pixel 2, on the other hand, has a very Pixel-like look with its 5-inch display and squared-off corners with massive bezels. The only difference between its predecessor is that there's a glass accent at the top of the phone that is smaller and doesn't suck the fingerprint sensor into the middle of it.

Under The Hood

Inside, we have Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and the option of 64GB and 128GB of storage. Both of the new Pixel smartphones feature front-facing stereo speakers and OLED displays, while the Pixel 2's 5-inch display has a 1080p resolution (441 PPI), but the Pixel 2 XL rocks an impressive 6-inch OLED display with a native res of 2880 x 1440 (538 PPI).
