Last year's Pixel devices released at the tail end of the 821 chipsets life, but the delay of the 835 this year means that an October launch will not be as bad. The bigger Pixel 2 XL is being put together by LG.

Stay Tuned with us.

The two phones by Google are codenamed Taimen and Walleye.

Google's teaser video above gives us a small idea of what to expect from the Pixel 2.

It's Google's turn to announce its new flagship phones now that its rival Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 8 and other rival Apple just unveiled the new iPhone X and iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Interestingly, this poses a question that if Google Pixel 2 is G011A and Pixel XL 2 is G011C, what happened to "G011B", the alleged "Muskie" smartphone.

The update also makes some interface changes and does away with saving backups of the apps installed on your devices. Apple announced last month that iTunes U content can now be found in the iTunes' podcasts section.


Previous year on October 4th, Google launched the Pixel and the Pixel XL, the first exclusive smartphones from Google.

So now, Google Pixel 2 users won't have to worry regarding battery and storage issues. The video shows a Google search for various questions about smartphones, hinting at some of the problems Google is looking to address with the Pixel 2. This time around, Google is expected to launch two new Pixels-the HTC-manufactured Pixel 2 and the LG-manufactured Pixel 2 XL. If you're not into huge phones, we called the 5-inch pixel a "superb alternative".

The internet giant behind Android software for powering mobile devices also launched a madebygoogle.com web page that featured a playful animation that asked "Thinking about changing phones?" and then suggested waiting until 4 October.

HTC's FCC application last month revealed that the Pixel 2 will have squeezable sides just like the HTC U11's Edge Sensor. Google is resisting the industry trend of dual rear cameras, but it's not resisting the inexplicable industry conspiracy to kill the headphone jack.

According to reports, the new Pixel will come in a standard and XL model.
