When someone hears the word leak today, two things come to mind that is associated with this term; something having to do with politics or something that refers to technology. Fortunately, the association that we will be discussing is leaked information regarding the upcoming smart phone the Google Pixel 2.
Let’s keep in mind that while the details that are mentioned in this leak will make many people’s mouths water, there is always the strong possibility the information may be inaccurate or embellished.
Nevertheless, it would be inexcusable once looking at the benchmark to not talk about the new headset that, if accurate, will give the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 something to be concerned about.
One thing that stands out of what these three devices would have in common, is the design of a headset with a screen that practically eliminates bezel. Many users have, for years, voiced out their disappointment of a screen that is shortened because of the bezel; however, it now seems that the Galaxy S8, which is in stores already, the upcoming iPhone 8 and Google’s Pixel 2 will have a screen that will have a practically bezel-less design.
Presently, only the Galaxy S8 can boast about this design while the other two headsets are only speculated to have the reduced bezel.
Let’s talk specs
Moving on, the benchmark that was found by WinFuture has other information that makes this upcoming smartphone a competitive device. The Pixel 2 is reported to have a resolution of 2K, translated to be 2560×1312, and a display of 5.6 inches.

When it comes to multitasking and how much data it can hold onto, Pixel 2’s storage capability is 128GB while possessing 4GB of RAM that will help in multitasking quickly and smoothly.
Anyone who is interested or loves taking pictures/video’s, no one should be disappointed as it possesses 4K recording capability along with a 12-megapixel camera as well as a front camera that is 7-megapixels and is also capable of taking 4K video. Did I mention that the operating system is Android 7.1.1?
Breaking down what the leaked specs are saying, the thing that stands out must be the resolution. The data predicts it of possessing an 2-1 aspect ratio which is in line with devices such as the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 that originally presented an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.
Simplifying what just has been stated, it appears that the HTC and Google are in the hunt for creating for the upcoming family of devices for Google Pixel an all-screen design. This would create an opportunity for fans to possess a phone that has the capabilities of both worlds; software that is completely Android while having specs that are cutting-edge, adding what id trending presently which is an all-screen design that is beautiful.
Sadly, there has been no leaks presently of what the smartphone would look like; however, it is most likely that as we get closer to the headset arriving in stores, there should be some made available as the launch gets closer.
