Pixel XL 2 leak;  does this mean anything to you?

So, while I can sit here and spout off random news posts about the newest phone, the most random phone, and things that cost more than entry level salaries,  I would like to post things that are relevant to you.  

When you unfortunately break that phone you’ve been holding on to for dear life over the past two years,  you may want to get some insight on what route you want to go next.   That’s one of the main goals here at The Tech Homie.   

If you are looking for some guidance on what tech you may want to purchase in the future, OR, you want to understand how the tech that you own now works,  you can come here to figure out the right way to go.

A sequel to the Google Pixel,  designed by Google with pure Android enthusiasts in mind has been leaked.  When the Pixel and Pixel XL launched, the devices quickly became the two of the most popular, most important devices to this date.  So it is important to see what comes next for Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2.

While there have been multiple Pixel 2 rumors to date, this latest Pixel XL 2 leak comes from Android Police.  The leaked render shows a very refined, and rather large device with a nearly edge to edge display in tow.  The Pixel XL 2 will apparently be made by LG.   

The LG made device is rumored to have an LG made 6 inch AMOLED display,  with a 2:1 aspect ratio.  The corners on the XL 2 look to be rounded, which fit with LGs general aesthetic when it comes to phone design. 
Looking at the back of the phone, the general look of the device looks similar to the previous Pixel XL,  with a larger camera sensor, and he same part glass part metal look that the Pixel devices had.   The first Pixel phones had the fingerprint scanner on the glass, but from this device, it looks like the fingerprint scanner has moved down to the metal side of the phone.  

Rumored specifications include a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and sensors on the sides of the device (think HTC Edge Sense), which give the ability to interact the phone by squeezing the sides of the device. 

So what does this mean for you? 

Well, if you aren’t looking for a new phone? Absolutely nothing.  But if you are in the market for a new phone, and maybe you are interested in the strides made in AI (Artificial Intelligence), then look for the Pixel 2, and Pixel XL 2 later this year. 

With phones like the Galaxy Note 8 and the iPhone 8 coming down the line, it’s entirely possibly that the Pixel XL 2, with its lack of bloatware to bog the phone down, and the most up to date software under the hood,  might also be an option to check out when you look for your next phone to invest in for the future.
What questions do you guys have in regards to the Pixel XL 2?  What phones are you guys looking to check out for the second half of the year?  

Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments, or in Social Media.
