What is Google Clips? Mystery device tipped for Pixel 2 event

The design is very exhausted but some may prefer the smaller phone. Now the leakster has posted another set of images which include both Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. We've seen the Pixel 2 XL in a case yesterday (and from the front), then both the Pixel 2 and its bigger sibling got the press render treatment.

On the other hand, the Pixel 2 will have similar specs as its bigger variant, but it could come with larger bezels and FHD screen instead of QHD screen.

The inventory page was spotted on Synnex's website by 9to5Google, which reports that the Pixelbook will (at least according to that page) have a 12.3-inch display.

Blass's photo of the Pixel 2 XL shows it wearing a case, but there's also one where it's not. It's all one piece of glass, unlike the mostly bump-free Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8. It could also be an AR or VR accessory for the new smartphones, like a detachable camera. Below you'll find everything you need to know about Google's flagship phones. But tomorrow's event bolsters Google's commitment to hardware and smartphones following the company's purchase of HTC's talent for more than $1 billion dollars.

Last month we heard through Droid-Life that the Google Pixelbook will be sold alongside a $99 stylus called the Pixelbook Pen, which will reportedly have pressure-sensitive and tilt support. The company launched two new Pixel smartphones past year along with a smart speaker and virtual reality headset. Along with the mini speaker, the images reveal the Pixel XL 2 as well featuring a USB Type-C port on the bottom, rounded white back/sides and a SIM tray on the side of the device.

So there's clearly an exciting night ahead for fans of the Pixel but that may not be the only device unveiled at the event. Given the success of Pixel previous year, the follow-up should be better.

No pricing has been leaked yet but with the full Google Home priced at $200 we expect this to come in a lot cheaper, priced to go up against the Amazon Echo Dot (~$60US).
