Google will unveil new Pixel phones dubbed as Pixel XL 2 and the Pixel 2 in the coming months, possibly in late September or October.

First, its shape is changed a bit from the original Pixel.

Note that for the Google Pixel, NHG47Q is for Verizon models, NZH54D is for Deutsche Telekom, NKG47S is for T-Mobile, Fi users, and Rogers, while NJH47F is for everyone else.

Thanks to an anonymous tipster, we now have a clear idea of what the upcoming Google Pixel successor will look like. The regular Pixel, however, looks more like a pre-2017 smartphone. The images don't really show too much that we hadn't seen in previous renders and the last live photo that was leaked. Just like the HTC U11, the phone is also said to feature squeeze-sensitive frames that could activate certain apps or features of the phone.

Partial lunar eclipse to occur over the Arab world on Monday
NASA has the eclipse lasting about two hours , and peaking at around 18:20 Coordinated Universal Time, or around 2:20 p.m. The space circuit in India is buzzing with excitement and anticipation ever since word about the lunar eclipse spread.

Those huge bezels: In fairness to Google, you're likely to see equally large bezels on the iPhone 7S or iPhone 8 or whatever Apple decides to call its standard iPhone this year.

Another rumor circulating the internet is that the phones may feature the Snapdragon 836 instead of the 835 that has been on most flagships for this year so far. This could mean the Pixel 2 will have front-firing stereo speakers, which would make for a richer multimedia experience.

The Google Store is having a back-to-school sale right now, with big savings on Pixel, Pixel XL, and more. The device is nearly identical to the current Pixel, indicating Google isn't going all-out in an effort to stave off Apple's impending iPhone overhaul.

The $524 deal for Google Pixel is not something that is unheard of, in fact, Amazon is already selling the Pixel at $528 but you won't be getting the free DayDream VR headset.
