The Google Pixel 2 seems to be an evolution over last year’s model, but the headphone jack is a big question
Then there’s the Walleye model, being a smaller Pixel with a 5-inch full HD display (screen tech wasn’t revealed, but we’re assuming AMOLED), similarly large bezels and overall design to last year’s model, a Snapdragon 835 chip and 4GB of RAM.
However, XDA’s source also claims that the small Pixel will have front-facing speakers but no headphone jack. Sigh. It’s unclear whether the lack of a headphone jack applies to the smaller model only or both phones.
