With the iPhone opening out of the way, Google is now starting to spin up the marketing machine for its next flagship phone. Google has launched a teaser situation and a video asking dissatisfied smartphone users to «stay tuned for uncountable on October 4.» What Google wants users to «stay tuned» for is the Pixel 2, the upshot to the Google Pixel.
When we last checked in with Google’s 2017 flagship, we were working off a tweet from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass asking that the phone would launch October 5th and come with a new «Snapdragon 836» SoC. Later stories from both Android Police and XDA Developers disputed this, uttering Qualcomm wasn’t working on mid-cycle «836» refresh this year. The Pixel 2 is now required to have the same Snapdragon 835 SoC as every other high-end Android phone.

Everything else we’ve heard surrounding the phone still holds up. There will be two devices, called something groove on the «Pixel 2» and «Pixel 2 XL.» They’re not going to be «small» and «big» versions of the having said that phone this year, though. Google is actually splitting the putting together duties across two different Android OEMs, with LG handling the big phone and HTC doing the nugatory one. As a result, the LG Pixel 2 XL looks like a modern phone with slim bezels, while the HTC Pixel 2 looks a lot adore last year’s phone.
Both phones are expected to continue with metal backs that metastasis to a glass window near the top of the phone, but the glass window will be smaller on the new phones. They’re also expected to touch someone for the «squeezable» side button from the HTC U 11, which will perhaps be used to launch the Google Assistant. Google is resisting the industry course of dual rear cameras, but it’s not resisting the inexplicable industry conspiracy to quash the headphone jack.
Like last year, Google’s software combine will be the big focus of the Pixels, with a new always-on display mode find to Android along with Google Lens, a visual search app.
