The latest leak of the Google Pixel 2 appears in the form of an FCC listing and reveals some insights on to the Google Pixel 2 with the model number G011A.

The FCC certification which was received on a filing by HTC has confirmed that the Taiwan-based mobile manufacturer will be making the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL device which will feature the same squeezable features as seen on HTC U11. Samsung has launched a bunch of smartphones these past few months and Google did not want any of this competition and decided to keep Pixel 2 away from the media's eyes.

Android 8.0 will bring also bring support for Bluetooth 5.0 technologies, which is currently rumoured to hit HTC's U11 smartphones. A consensus was recently arrived at by both Xiaomi and Google over the Mi Box.

There won't be a dual camera setup on the new Pixels, according to leaked renders (above), and the fingerprint sensor will continue to sit awkwardly on the rear of the device. Furthermore, the processor is accompanied by an Adreno 540 graphics processing unit and 4GB of RAM alongside 64GB of internal storage space.

Elsewhere the OS is listed as Android 8.0.1 with an August security patch. Honestly, this depends on which side of the table you are seated. It is also worth noting that last years' Pixel phones too, popped up in FCC listings around the same time. Given the premium nature of the Pixel line and the fact that the "Baseband version" features the 8998 codename, the latter chip is very likely. We will see a a ton of new devices coming on the market soon, and the current phones will see big price drops.

While we'll have to wait and see if the features teased in the filing come to fruition upon the Pixel 2's release - expected to be October - it'll be more interesting to quirky additions like a squeezable input will assuage fans who have already expressed concern about the design choices for the smaller Pixel phone.
