Google is reportedly collaborating with two phone makers on the Pixel 2 smartphones, with the smaller device supposedly being produced by HTC, whereas the larger Pixel XL 2 is understood to be handled by LG Electronics.
"Ask more of your phone", the otherwise blank canvas reads, with Google's stylised "G" logo and the October 4 date at the bottom.
After months of leaks and rumours, today Google officially confirmed that it will be launching its next smartphone on the 4th of October. After Huawei announced its launch date for its next flagship, Google has announced in a rather striking way about the launch date of the next generation Pixel smartphones - it's on October 4. Two devices are expected to arrive - the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL and the latter just popped up on FCC. The Pixel 2 is now expected to have the same Snapdragon 835 SoC as every other high-end Android phone.
Without the headphone jack, iPhone users are forced to either use a cumbersome adapter, which prevents the phone from being charged at the same time, or they must buy new headphones that support Apple proprietary Lightning connection.
As Apple's iPhone X pushes the starting price of mainstream phones higher than ever before, I think it would be a mistake for Google to stray into the $800 range now simply because it can.
Owners of faulty Nexus 6P units including those whose one year warranty has elapsed are eligible for the replacements. Ask more of your phone. The 35-second video doesn't show the Pixel 2, but it does tease the smartphone by showing an animation of people typing in questions into Google about their mobile device. That's a concerning omission because rumors leading up to the October 4 unveiling suggest the Pixel 2 won't come with the beloved port.
