Pixel 2 Series Launching On October 4, Google Confirms

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 release date is less than two months away, and now we know the official launch date.

On the Pixel 2 it's called Active Edge and will launch Assistant. That couldn't get any more obvious unless Google just came out and said it was the Pixel 2.

As for the video teasing the October 4 announcement, it's a series of questions that hint at some of the problems the Pixel 2 will likely solve: battery life, storage, blurry photos, AI, automatic updates, slowness (performance), heat, durability, etc. It's also possible that a few more billboards and other marketing items pop up in the meantime, which Google will use to build some hype before the launch. The G011C is what lends itself to being a Pixel XL 2. And now Google has confirmed that October 4 is going to be the big day this year. 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.

The locations that Google is sending Pixel XL as replacements are yet to be verified but reports indicate that consumers in the US and Canada are only getting the Pixel smartphone.

It appears Google is hinting at improved battery life on the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2.

Google today went live with a teaser Web site that asks would-be buyers, "Thinking about changing phones?". The Pixel and Pixel XL 2 were widely praised for their excellent cameras, and were consistently ranked near the top for quality. Google might also be finally dumping the headphone jack from its new devices this time around, to the dismay of many fans alike.

For now, we'll have to wait until October 4 to find out what Google means with all its questions. There are even rumors that the Pixel 2 might have squeezable sides similar to the HTC U11, but that's really more of a bonus than a must-have feature. The smaller Pixel 2 made by HTC has already earned its FCC badge earlier. We will update you with everything related to Pixel phones.
