A few years ago, Motorola introduced a groundbreaking concept that allowed customers to customize the color of the phone they were buying. When the Moto X launched, Motorola said there were over 2,000 possible color combinations to choose from. Imagine if a company like Google provided a similar service with its upcoming Pixel 2 XL.
Reddit user warbylee2017 created new renders of the alleged Pixel 2 XL, but rather than splashing the device in its expected Really Blue, the user jumped outside of the box with some amazing results.
Rather than silver, white, blue and black, warbylee2017 produced mockups that imagine the Pixel 2 XL with a copper glass panel combined with a more earthly tone. I don’t think I’ve wanted a color combination more than the copper and dark red. It looks unlike anything else out there.
Warbylee2017 made the same renders in a huge of gold, rather than copper, and they look just as good. That accented home button helps complete what looks to be one of this year’s most elegant designs. I mean, check out this other concept and tell me you’re not excited for the Pixel 2 XL.
Most gadgets todays are either black, silver, or gold. These combinations lie somewhere in the middle, making the Pixel 2 XL’s design pop while also keeping it unique. I seriously doubt Google will introduce colors anything close to warbylee2017’s imagination. But that’s what renders are for.
With the release of Android O around the corner, expect to hear official Google Pixel 2 XL details very soon. In the meantime, you can catch up on the latest rumors in the links to the right.
