Google Confirms 4 October Event For Next Pixel Phones


Apple might have revealed their new iPhone 8 and iPhone X smartphones, but they’re so ‘meh’ that it doesn’t really matter – the real reason to be excited is for Google’s upcoming Pixel 2 smartphones, which the company is now teasing in Boston.

We know that Google is working on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets, so the question is when will they be announced? A rumor from last month suggested that the phones could be officially announced on the 5th of October, but a recently spotted billboard has suggested that maybe the phones could be announced a day earlier instead.

In a report from Droid-Life, they were sent an image by a source that as you can see in the photo above, is a giant billboard that was erected in Boston. The billboard reads, “Ask more of your phone,” followed by the “G” logo from Google and the October 4 date. While the billboard is rather vague, the mention of phones and the date does seem to suggest that this could be referring to the Pixel 2’s announcement date.

According to reports, the 4 October launch event could also see the unveiling of Google Assistant-powered headphones similar to Apple’s AirPods, a new smaller version of Google Home and a new Chromebook Pixel laptop.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will likely be the stars of the show, although neither smartphone likely will have many surprises in store.

A recent FCC filing made by HTC, which will be building the smaller Pixel smartphone, that the Pixel 2 will boast HTC U11-a-like squeeze functionality through its ‘Active Edge’ feature. This added functionality will reportedly allow users to, primarily at least, squeeze the handset to interact with Google Assistant in various ways.

Screenshots also show off the new Android O Settings app and reveal that the Pixel XL is running version 8.0.1 with August’s security patch installed.

Despite speculation that the Pixel 2 could be the first phone to pack Qualcomm’s as-yet-unannounced Snapdragon 836 processor, the FCC filing confirms that the phone will feature the firm’s Snapdragon 835 “platform”, thanks to its choice of WiFi chip.

Storage is listed at 50.66GB free when 21 per cent is used, revealing that the Pixel 2 likely will come with 64GB built-in as standard.

The Pixel XL 2, which is reportedly being made by LG, will feature a 6in display, bigger than that on last year’s Pixel XL, with the same 2:1 aspect ratio as the LG G6. µ
