We had heard rumors last week that the new Pixel phones would feature a refreshed Pixel launcher which is what we are seeing on the latest Pixel 2 XL leaks. The latest series of leaked images come from trusted leakster Evan Blass. The new Pixel phones are rumored to launch with Oreo 8.1 which on the Pixel devices should include the updated Pixel Launcher. We no longer see the Google "pill" paired with the weather widget near the top of the screen. Instead we have a full search bar that is placed near the bottom of the screen. This enables people to access search as easily as possible which is Google's main goal in the end. Towards the top of the screen we do see a new calendar/ weather widget. In all the new launcher looks pretty clean. Keep in mind none of this has been confirmed. We will know exactly what we are getting once the phone has been launched tomorrow.
