Google's Pixel 2 Is Coming Out On October 4

Lucas Bell | 15 September, 2017, 00:47

The Pixel 2 was first spotted at the Federal Communications Commission last month. If you recall, the company launched the Pixel and Pixel XL on 4 October 2016. What Google wants users to "stay tuned" for is the Pixel 2, the sequel to the Google Pixel. Moreover, it looks like Google is swapping out defective Nexus 6P phones even if they're not under warranty, but they're offering replacements only to those who bought them through Google Store.

Google's October 4 event is just under three weeks from today, so we don't have much longer to wait. Interestingly, this poses a question that if Google Pixel 2 is G011A and Pixel XL 2 is G011C, what happened to "G011B", the alleged "Muskie" smartphone. According to the report, there are arguments that the billboard may be referring to something else, but given that the Pixel launched at around the same time a year ago and that it is indeed referring to a phone, a Pixel 2 launch event is very likely.

Although we had previously penciled in October 5 as the debut date for the new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones, Google has confirmed both phones will actually debut on October 4. The video shows a Google search for various questions about smartphones, hinting at some of the problems Google is looking to address with the Pixel 2.

Apart from the codename, it is also known that at least the HTC-made Pixel 2 will carry forward the Edge Sense from their 2017 flagship U11 and will run on Android 8.0.1, which hasn't been announced by Google yet.

One thing to note is that Canadian Nexus 6P owners who have gone through the process say Google sent them a 32GB Pixel XL model, while those who went through the process in the USA and United Kingdom were able to get a 128GB model. Now Google Pixel 2 XL has passed through FCC, revealing LG as the manufacturer. This time around, we might see some other hardware products as well, with rumors pointing to a smaller Google Home-type speaker and possibly a pair of smart headphones with integrated Google Assistant.
