Google Pixel 2 likely to be announced on 4 October

Google Pixel 2 likely to be announced on 4 October

Google's launch event will take place on the 4th of October but we already have a good idea of what to expect from both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Until now that is.

Google has also sent out official press invites for the Pixel launch event, which will begin at 12 PM ET in San Francisco on October 4th.

The Google billboard says simply: "Ask more of your phone" and then the date, October 4. A previous leak had said the Google smartphone would launch october 5.

Earlier today we told you about a billboard, revealing the launch date of the new Pixel phones by Google.

Google will need to step up its game to compete with Apple, which on Wednesday debuted the iPhone X and Apple Watch 3 with cellular capabilities that allow the user to leave the phone at home. A few weeks back, an FCC filing by HTC confirmed that the Pixel 2 would make use of the Snapdragon 835 and offer 64GB of storage. Assistant will certainly be part of the announcement; that was an exclusive feature of the Pixel phones for several months last time. So, Google might be bringing in the Optical Image Stabilisation to the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 replacing the Electronic counterpart from a year ago.

Google has recently launched a brand-new website that encourages users to "ask more".

As per the recent reports, the Pixel 2 smartphone contains the squeezable frame, and this feature resembles the HTC U11. Many former Nexus 6P owners have also reported that they have received 32GB Pixel Xl smartphones as warranty replacements, while some seem to have even received 128GB models.

Last year's Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL became very popular.

One of the biggest knocks against the first Pixel (and rightly so), was that it looked like a tech-y version of Frankenstein's monster.

Why does my phone take so many blurry photos?

The iPhone X is going to get some competition from Google this fall.

Though Pixel is technically a "Phone by Google", it's made by HTC.
