Finally, VentureBeat has also gotten confirmation that Google will do away with the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Google Pixel 2 as well. Some reports have suggested that Google might try to differentiate its two Pixel models, with the smaller Pixel looking like the current version while the Pixel XL2 features a more expansive screen and squeezable sides for controlling the Google Assistant.

The Pixel 2, which is code-named Walleye, shows a very familiar design with a few key differences between last year's model. Make of that what you will, but the Pixel 2 saga just got interesting.

Freshly leaked case-design renderings of Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have surfaced online via United Kingdom based accessory retailer MobileFun while the internet is abuzz with rumours on the highly-anticipated launch of these smartphones, sometime later this year.

There are a good number who are still enjoying the best of services from both the Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, but there are those who have had to swallow lots of issues with respect to these phones. He says that the smaller of Google's two phones will retain the usual front and bottom bezels. Yes, the image which you below is said to be of the upcoming Pixel 2 and well, it looks nothing like what we were expecting it would look like.

With many OEMs moving towards this direction, it won't be long before you start finding it hard when it comes to bumping into decent headphones that are compatible with 3.5mm audio jacks.
