Google might have a massive surprise for their next-gen Pixel XL smartphone, with Android Police reporting that LG is making the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 smartphone, something that would feature a "squeezable" frame that activates Google Assistant.

The new squeezable frame is similar to HTC's just-released U11 smartphone and its impressive "Edge Sense" feature that lets you use a squeeze gesture that activates pressure sensors that can flick the flashlight on, open up the camera app, snap a photo, or launch Google Assistant.

 

Google's upcoming Pixel XL 2 smartphone is rumored to sport a 6-inch display with a 2:1 aspect ratio, rounded corners, and a "minimal bezel". It has a longer design that looks similar to Samsung's Galaxy S8 smartphone, with the fingerprint sensor placed in the most accessible spot - right on the back, just like the current-gen Pixel and Pixel XL.

 

We don't know when Google will launch its next-gen Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, but we should expect them to compete directly against Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 8 handset that's expected later this year.
