    Nothing too surprising, unless 128 GB is gonna be the only storage option for the XL. That'll be weird. And pricey.

    I just hope they don't cripple the big(-ish) one with a single bottom-firing speaker: two front facing HTC speakers would have been so friggin' money!

    Stupid HTC! Can't make a 2:1 phone!

    2017 Nexus? Or you meant Pixel? Regardless, 6 inch screen is what I wanted.

    Interesting rumors. Kind of like it. But hope the Pixel has more options than just 64gb.

    Sure, but at a 2:1 aspect ratio this new XL's display will look a lot more like the 6P's 5.7" display than the Nexus 6's 6"er. The loss in width that makes 2:1 do-able makes a surprisingly big difference. Still, I'm glad about the bump from 5.5."

    So true... overlooked that spec. Yeah I'm not really liking all this tall screen bandwagon at the cost of losing wider screens. Still I'll take this over smaller screens any day.

    Hmm, 3 of those specs are correct, all others are not. Also the big one, the 6" one.. LG appears to be the OEM for a Nexus device, although it's possible it could be a Pixel. There is no 5.5". Check out the link someone put above to the most accurate specs available at this time.

    In the link it saying "Expected" Snapdragon 835 & 4GB of RAM,

    Pixel 2 series like last year will use the Snapdragon 836 MSM8998 "Pro" model again!

    RAM will also be 6GB over last years 4GB as expected.

    This is what I expect of Google "Taimen" this November!

    Most realistic specs they must reach to compete against iPhone 8 & Note 8 top hardware this fall.

    With 70 Million iPhone 8 using Samsung Infinite 3K OLED displays Google has got there hands on New LG 6th generation OLED Mobile displays in an $880 Million dollar deal.

    I would expect 6 gen LG OLED to be 4K since they are the kings of 4K OLED displays for UHDTV's.

    Pixel in 2016 used Snapdragon 821 (MSM8996 Pro) last year! So I would expect the same for Pixel 2 in 2017 to use the upcoming Snapdragon 836 (MSM8998 Pro)

    As with Samsung Note 8 using Snapdragon 836 & 6GB of RAM I also expect Pixel 2 to have 6GB of RAM.

    Pixel 2 must have better specs then what Samsung Galaxy S8 had 8 months before it!

    My opinion.

    I have four concerns with the LG-made Nexus version.
    1. The device will be poor quality like most LG phones
    2. The camera will oversharpen images like LG cameras
    3. The display will not be flat like I want
    4. The display will have a gross cold temperature like other LG displays

    On these:

    Did the Nexus 5X oversharpen?

    Is this true for AMOLED LG displays?

    I have no idea, but LG loves to oversharpen their camera images.

    I'm sure the LG OLED TVs are fine, but those aren't smartphone displays and LG has used cold display temperatures for their smartphone displays. It's not like LG had to use the cold display temps because of LCD technology limitations.

    I wouldn't expect any of that except maybe the Snapdragon 836.

    That's fine for LG phones. But this rumored Nexus/Pixel is not an LG phone. It's a Google phone. LG oversharpening images is irrelevant.

    I think we can all safely assume the upcoming Nexus or Pixel made by LG will use an AMOLED display (Daydream, the LG Display deal with Google). Google will be involved in tuning. And you can't name an LG smartphone with an LG AMOLED display and LG has tuned cold.

    Size of the Big Phone


    The LG one is 5.99" 2:1 display, so it'd be roughly 2.68" wide and 5.36" tall (the display part only).
    This would put it at the just shorter than the width as a 5.5" 16:9 display (Pixel XL is 2.70" wide) and the height would be about the same as a 6.15" 16:9 device, which would be slightly longer than the Nexus 6 was. So width of the Pixel XL, height a little bigger than the Nexus 6.
