The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now out and attention has turned to Google, with many smartphone lovers patiently waiting to see what the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL can do as their only viable alternative on the market.

Now it appears that there has been a monumental leak with regards to Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL specs according to recent reports.

Possible Google Pixel 2 specs:

– Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
– Pixel Cameras with OIS and Google Imaging Chip
– 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage
– No headphone jack, but dual front speakers

    Headphone jack – is a deal breaker for me.

    OK, perhaps if they include a dongle, but will not be using Bluetooth – it’s too easy to be used for malware attack.
