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. According to a billboard set by Google in Boston, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 may launch on October 4. Of course, there's always a chance that this isn't about the Pixel 2 - however slim it may be - but this is about as close to a sure thing as possible.
Spotted by droid-life, the billboard doesn't really reveal much except the "G" logo, October 4 date, and the tag line - "Ask more of your phone". The billboard doesn't carry anything else. Basically an upgraded version of Google's first Pixel smartphone. The device is expected to go on sale around mid-October.
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. Blass later tweeted that the Snapdragon 836 would now launch early next year under a different branding. The company did the same thing past year with a large silhouette of the Pixel device that was spotted in New York City. Now, it's Google's turn to show off their next flagship smartphone - the Google #Pixel 2 and XL 2.More news: Tag: buy zenfone 4 selfie
The new Pixel models will also be IP68 dust and water resistant, it has been claimed. So, what happened to G011B? Coming to the specifications, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are expected to equipped with 4.95 and 5.99 inches QHD LG screen.
The mobile enthusiasts are now just waiting for the final invites to the event.
