These are the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

And the Google Pixel 2 XL will be in-line with most of the 2017 flagship smartphones with an 18:9 display and thin bezels on top and bottom. There will be 4GB of RAM and either 64 or 128GB of internal storage available as choices when the phone is officially launched. According to leaked pictures, the front panel will be painted black whereas the rear panels will come in different colours.

Renowned tipster Evan Blass has revealed official images of both handsets, which have been the subject of a string of leaks in recent weeks. The new devices will be presented as the second generation of Google's own Pixel series. Reportedly, the Pixel 2 XL will feature a 6-inch almost bezel-less edge-to-edge QHD+ P-OLED rounded display, while the Pixel 2 will sport a 5-inch, 1080p display. Previously with the Pixel and Pixel XL launch, Blass had also released images of the devices. What excites us more than anything is the Pixel 2 smartphones. The leaked images of Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL were shared by the mobile reporter, Evan Blass. While this gives XL 2 a reduced bezel profile, it still falls short of being the true edge-to-edge device that some may be hoping for.

The Pixel XL is said to be made by LG, per FCC documents and earlier reports, and this does look similar in design to both the LG G6 and the more recent V30.

Mussa Abu Marzuq, a senior Hamas official previously affirmed that disarmament "will [never] be up for discussion". Hamas' reversal was the most significant step towards Palestinian unity since the government was formed in 2014.

The 5-inch Pixel 2 will reportedly have the standard 16:9 aspect ratio you'd find in some of the older smartphones out there.

The leaked images suggest that both the handsets will sport dual speakers at the front - one above and another below the display. But, the first one to hit the stores will be the Pixel 2 on October 19, instead of Pixel 2 XL, which will be arriving November 15. According to Droid Life, the Pixel 2 may come with a price tag of $649 and $749 for the 64GB and 128GB models while the Pixel 2 XL may cost $849 and $949 for the same storage variants.
