You Can't Miss This Google Pixel Deal

Leak reveals Pixel 2 will have big bezels, no dual-camera and headphone jack Google's Pixel 2 might look no different to the current model

Google ventured into making smartphones after releasing some of the finest masterpieces in association with LG. When Google announced the Pixel smartphones a year ago, their bezels were a bit of a controversial topic, and especially now with most manufacturers going "bezel-less", the Pixel 2 is set to be an equally divisive phone, if not more. As 9to5Google reports, the search giant has given the phone a heavy discount in the Google Store. This new device will have the same top and bottom bezels just like Pixel and Pixel XL have. The tipster (unfortunately) confirmed to GSMArena that the Pixel 2 lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack as well, as was previously reported. Of course, the information needs to be taken with a pinch of salt as the image could just be an early render and not the final design. The Pixel 2 will also keep HTC as its manufacturer.

Those huge bezels: In fairness to Google, you're likely to see equally large bezels on the iPhone 7S or iPhone 8 or whatever Apple decides to call its standard iPhone this year. Some rumors are floating around claiming that the new Pixel devices won't come with a headphone jack. It will be the first smartphone to run Google's Android O operating system. The Pixel 2 phones could also feature an Always-On display. Last year's Pixel phones were also announced in October, right before the holiday shopping season.

The Pixel XL 32GB variant is now available at $569.00 or $23.71/month for 24 months with Google Store Financing against the original price of $769, while the 128GB model is priced at $669.00 or $27.88/month for 24 months with Google Store Financing against the original price of $869. It's flat $200 off its regular price of $769. The company has further sweetened the deal by offering a free Google Daydream View VR headset to buyers.

It's important to note that we're expecting Google to release successors to its original Pixel smartphones within the next few months.
