Google Pixel 2: Everything we know so far

UPDATED: No surprises left as everything leaks - Google's next flagship phones are coming courtesy of HTC and LG

Last year's Pixel wasn't the world-beating Google phone we hoped it would be. It's a fine handset, especially with stock Android Nougat in the mix, but it sadly feels like a retread.

With its iPhone-esque design and lack of flagship features like a Quad HD screen or water resistance, the Pixel was merely good in a time of brilliant smartphones. But that could all change with the Pixel 2.

Right now it's all rumours and reports – but they paint a compelling story of Google going for a flashy new design with the Pixel 2 XL, and maybe sticking with what worked OK last time with the standard Pixel 2.

We'll have to wait and see for sure, but if you're curious what the speculation suggests, here's a look at what we've seen and heard about from the Google Pixel 2.
