Back in 2016, Google released its very first “Made by Google” phone, the Google Pixel. At the time, the search company chastised Apple’s decision on ditching the headphone jack on the iPhone 7.
For some time, this was one of the major selling point of the Pixel phone. However, as days roll into weeks, and weeks into months, more and more phone manufacturers are ditching the old reliable in favour of something better.
Now, as if trying to swallow its pride, a new render video of the Google Pixel 2 surfaced the Internet. And the most noticeable feature in it is the headphone jack, or lack thereof.
The latest video render came from MySmartPrice in cooperation with OnLeaks. From the render video, it is quite clear that the the headphone jack is not present anymore. Furthermore, the glass portion at the back of the phone is slightly smaller than usual.
The render also showed that the rear of the phone now has a camera bump. Apart from that, nothing much has changed when it comes to the overall aesthetics of the phone.
It should be noted though that this video render of the Google Pixel 2 is based on rumours and leaks that have been passed around. Sites like OnLeaks often show CAD drawings of various to-be-release devices and the Google Pixel 2 is one of them.
On the other hand, there are no ways of confirming whether this render actually represents the official design of the phone. So far, Google has remained very quite about its next generation Android phone. Not a lot of information has been given about the Pixel 2. Right now, there are rumors that LG will be the one to produce the phones this year.
