With Google gearing up to launch the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on October 4th this year – which will also be the last major smartphone launch of the year since other heavyweights such as iPhone X, iPhone 8 & 8+, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 & S+, Huawei P10 & P10+, and LG V30 have already been unveiled – these smartphone giants.
Yesterday a billboard was spotted in Boston stating “Ask more of your phone – Oct 4”, and according to a new teaser by the company on the Made by Google website, the company states, “Thinking about changing phones? Stay tuned for more on October 4.” While this does not name them, it is likely the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL might actually be launched on the scheduled date.
The Mountain View-based internet firm begun rolling out these teasers two days after the Cupertino-based tech firm, Apple Inc. launched its awaited iPhone 8, 8+, and iPhone X.
Google has also published a video teaser that imagines users typing in several questions about their smartphones into the search engine, lamenting poor battery life, blurry photos, lack of storage, dumbness, inability to auto-update, and bad performance, indicating the Pixel 2 series will not be affected by any of these common problems.
Like we reported earlier on, online reports claim that the Google Pixel 2 will be made by HTC while the 2 XL will be made by LG. The supposed Pixel phones are also expected to be powered by either Snapdragon 835 SoC or 836 SoC, the best-in-class offering from Qualcomm, which recently said Android smartphones are always first to get new features, taking a jab at Apple.
Notably, as these teasers are being pushed, there is no word/mention regarding the venue time, invites, and other details yet.
