    Onleaks is at it again with new 3D renders of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. His renders in the past have been spot on accurate. They are based on factory CADS. These CADS are like blueprints that allow accessory makers to produce accessories ahead of a devices launch. Along with the new renders Onleaks has provided detailed dimensions. The dimensions provided are labeled as "roughly". The Pixel 2 will be145.3x69.3x7.8mm with 8.2mm camera bump, and the Pixel 2 XL will be 157.6x76.3x7.9mm with an 8.6mm camera bump.

    The renders do show the minimized glass on the back, as well as a protruding camera. Interestingly enough we also see dual front facing speakers. Earlier reports suggested we wouldn't see dual front speakers. This will definitely be a welcomed change. However the renders also lack a headphone jack which would be a bit disappointing. Would you be able to get along without a headphone jack as long as the phone includes the dual front facing speakers? I'm not sure why it always has to be a give an take with OEMs. Why can't we just have both features? It is still pretty early so you can take these renders with a grain of salt.

    I'd take front facing speakers over a headphone jack. Obviously I'd like both, but if I had to choose, it would be the speakers. I haven't used the jack in a year or so.

    I'd take dual front facing speakers AND waterPROOFING over a headphone jack (course I'd also take a removable battery and SD card slot, but I know better than to expect that)

    I'd take some ribs, brisket and a Mtn. Dew from Franklin BBQ. When I'm eating that, I don't even remember that I have a phone. I think the specs look nice, but I do like the idea of waterproofing though. Sometimes I spill my Dew when I'm reaching for more ribs.

    True, plus even if you bought those cases they won't be available for shipment for a couple of months.

    I tend to go tpu case. Slips on real quick when I'm wanting a little more protection, and off when I'm some place I'm not concerned about dropping it.

    I would wait to get the case until just before the phone is shipped. never know if a better one will appear on the market prior to phone release :)

    Agree

    Plus by then the market gets a little saturated forcing some of the prices down. Plus unless it's an OtterBox I'm likely not planning on sending more than $10-$15.
