One of the most touted features of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL was the inclusion of a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, but new rumors suggest that the Pixel 2 may go the way of Apple and ditch the jack all together, but for God knows what.

There hasn’t been any solid confirmation yet about whether the phone is going to be waterproofed either, so it’s hard to see what Google is pushing for exactly if they go down that road.

This new piece of information comes from an internal document shared with the folks at 9to5Google, but as there aren’t any other sources to back up this anonymous report, it’s still up in the air as to whether this is a final decision or not.

On a more positive note, photo enthusiasts will love the Pixel 2 as more focus is being put on the phone’s camera.

The Pixel and Pixel XL already top the charts at DxOMark with a score of 89/100.

It’s rumored that the new camera won’t have any additional megapixels, but rather the hardware and software will be further enhanced, resulting in even better image post-processing.

The Pixel 2 is a long way from release, so expect many rumblings in the rumormill between now and then.
