We are just hours away from the Google Pixel 2 launch event and those images are leaked both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL in its entirety. Now are confirmed that the smaller Pixel 2 (codenamed Walleye) would be manufactured by HTC, and its elder brother – Pixel 2 XL (codenamed Taimen) would be manufactured by LG.

Talking about the specs the smaller Pixel 2 will feature a 5-inch 1080p display with regular 16:9 aspect ratio, whereas Pixel 2 XL would come with a 6-inch QHD+ display with taller 18:9 aspect ratio. Apart from their displays, both of them have similar specifications – Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64/128GB storage, 12MP rear camera and front-facing stereo speakers. The new Pixels are likely to come in three colors as shown in the image. The Pixel 2 will be priced at / and Pixel 2 XL at / for the lower/higher storage variants.

Taking a look at the image, we can clearly see some changes in the Pixel Launcher (default home). Google has moved the search widget all the way to bottom, which makes sense as the Pixel 2 XL has a taller 18:9 display, it would be easier to access the search widget from the bottom. We can also notice changes and see a calendar and weather widget at the top portion, where the search widget used to reside on first generation Pixel. Both the devices are rumored to run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box so they are the first Android Oreo devices
