Thing is the back doesn't look like much but i'm liking it over that of the G6, which i think looks plain and boring, same for the LG UI. Loving the 6" display on the Pixel 2 XL as well. Might wait it out till October for an upgrade replacement for my G3 and hope it is out by then. Was awaiting the Xperia XZ premium but doesn't look like it's coming to Canada.
Although most probably not, but hopefully it will include an SD slot this time. Plus, 64GB as standard.
Would love to buy this phone... But no sd card slot = no go for me... sorry Google
I'm in the US and can live without a dual SIM card slot, but Miracast is a must so that I can mirror whatever is on the phone's screen onto a Sony KDL-48W650D HDTV. Casting of videos from YouTube and such and Chrome browser tabs doesn't interest me, just Miracast mirroring of the full screen image. Also on my personal list of mandatory requirements is a microSDXC card slot, especially one that supports cards up to 256 GB or 512 GB in capacity. I really don't care if the phone is waterproof (IP whatever). Merely being splash proof and dust proof is good enough for me.
I've been waiting for a proper replacement for my Nexus 6 since Google stopped sending security updates at the beginning of this year. I'm enough of a Google purist that I'd rather use my still-awesome phone until it finally dies than have a phone that uses manufacturer software (S8 Note 7, etc). These specs remind me of, well, my Nexus 6, so I'm totally psyched!
"Splash and dust resistant" any idea if this will have an IP rating?
This phone is rumored so long i really dont believe it will ever be released.
4GB of Ram is ok, until 8GB arrives. The phone needs SD836 like the Note 8 not SD835, a 6" display, and no dual-tone paintwork.
Hopefully it will include an SD card slot, small as possible bezels (& D opposite), big as possible battery.
1/2.3 is relatively "large" sensor, so probably it will have a better camera than s8 and u11

Since when was that feature available to users worldwide apart from the very small percentage of US users? As for battery life, 4000mAh or larger should be the standard in phones this powerful and big. Anything less means prioritizing form (slim and thin profile) over function. Only Apple an get away with that because exterior design, appearance and brand prestige are Apple's main selling point. Any Android phone trying to use the same 'style-first, prestige-first' marketing strategy like what the Pixel is doing ('Phone by Google') is going to fail miserably and be perceived as a second rate trying hard copycat. Android phones should capitalize on their strength: functional and features superiority first, above looks and prestige. It's the only way an Android phone is going to earn the respect of iPhone users and hopefully bring some of them to the free, no-walls garden of Android. Google and other Android phone manufacturers need to learn a marketing lesson or two because they are doing it all wrong.

Google have planned everything in the Pixel the way they want it. Why no dual sim you say, that,s because Google offer a network of network where their sim can switch from one carrier to the other WITH ONLY ONE SIM.
Battery life will be better than any other android phone coming with the progress of the android 8. Apple already did improve the battery life for the Iphone with less mAh. Why cannot you understand that others can also improve their own phone?
No. Just stop it and leave your comrade in peace
