Billboard hints, Google Pixel 2 coming on October 4

Hate Android Oreo's new emoji? You may be able to bring the blobs back in a future Android release

A new billboard by Google in Boston has a tag line "Ask more of your phone", with the Google logo and the date of October 4, suggesting that its Pixel 2 phones will be unveiled on the same day as past year.

Have you received a Pixel smartphone as a replacement for a faulty 6P? Google has also kickstarted its massive marketing campaign by also installing numerous billboards to tease the launch event which is about to occur. These were first phones to be officially branded as Google phones, or rather, "Pixel, Phone by Google".

According to the filing, the Pixel XL 2 FCC ID is ZNFG011C. Following the October 4th announcement, many expect a release date around October 20th. Google was timely enough to allow for the excitement from Apple's launch to subside and promptly took centre stage to announce their latest devices. Google is also expected to reveal a Chromebook Pixel.




Besides, Google Pixel 2 launch another news buzzing on Droid Life states that a bigger Pixel version namely Pixel XL 2 is ongoing with the certification process at the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Pixel and Pixel XL 2 were widely praised for their excellent cameras, and were consistently ranked near the top for quality. That suggests the Pixel 2 will feature a squeeze-control function similar to the "Edge Sense" capabilities unveiled earlier this year in HTC's U11 flagship smartphone. Apple made the same choice for the iPhone 7 and subsequent iPhone models, which angered more than a few users. 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?".

Under the hood, the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 will once again sport the current flagship chipset, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835. We'll be soon following up this Google Pixel 2 release date article with a list of expected Google Pixel 2 features.
