Google's billboard hints at October 4 reveal date for Pixel 2 series

15 September, 2017, 00:46 | Author: Randy Kelley
  • Google is replacing defective Nexus 6P units with Pixel XLs but only in North America

It hints at the features that'll be highlighted at the unveiling, for example, "What's wrong with my phone's battery?" or "Why is my phone always out of storage?". Ask more of your phone.

Why doesn't my phone understand me?

Next, Google essentially confirms that these questions are valid points. The filing revealed that HTC would be the manufacturing partner for this device. One feature expected for both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL is a touch-sensitive edge, much like the HTC U11. One of those assumptions was that the phone would come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836, but it turns out that there would be no processor like that made. The billboard doesn't actually say that October 4 is the day Google will unveil the new handsets. The exact same code (G011C) also showed up on the Global Certification Forum a few weeks ago so it seems fairly certain that this is now the LG-made Pixel XL 2. Here's everything we know so far.

Google is expected to take the wraps of the Pixel 2 next month along with - probably - the Pixel 2 XL.

The next gen Pixel duos are the most anticipated smartphones of 2017. Like its predecessor, we expect the Pixel 2 will have a high-end camera. Google's marketing campaign comes after Apple revealed the iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices this week.

Barring a few bugs, the Google Pixel arguably established itself as the best Android smartphone previous year with unarguably the best picture quality from its primary camera. Are any of you now using a Google Pixel? Google is resisting the industry trend of dual rear cameras, but it's not resisting the inexplicable industry conspiracy to kill the headphone jack.

Google is set to launch its second-generation Pixel phones, likely to be called the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2, on October 4.

Unfortunately, there aren't many details along for the ride wit the official announcement. Stay tuned, as we dig more into this so, watch out more for this space.
