Google Pixel 2 billboard in Boston hints at an October 4 launch

It's a no-brainer that Google will load their phone with the latest hardware available at the time of release and make the Pixel 2 a significant improvement over its predecessor. This year, the company is preparing to introduce successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets. This also is likely to be the last of the major flagship phone launch of the year before we drift into the holiday craze thereafter. So, Google might be bringing in the Optical Image Stabilisation to the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 replacing the Electronic counterpart from previous year.

Google does not want to be left behind in launching new smart phones. There still are a few weeks to go until the launch of Google's new smartphones, so we will probably find out more about them before the launch event.

The filing doesn't reveal much about the phone but offers a sign that Google and its Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 partners are making headway on the expected October announcement. By the looks of it, the upcoming Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 phones will focus a great deal on camera, storage and battery life, among other things. Reports say that the South Korean tech giant, LG has been asked to manufacture one of the two models of Google Pixel 2, while one model would be developed by HTC. And while the invite doesn't specifically mention the new Pixel 2, that's exactly what we expect to see. We will update you with everything related to Pixel phones.

In less than a month, Google will launch the next-gen Pixel phones.

Google's Pixel event is happening in San Francisco at 9 AM PT on October 4. Additionally, these phones are IP68 dust and water-resistant, but don't have a 3.5mm headphone jack. Rumor also had it that the Google Pixel 2 will feature Active Edge, something similar to the Edge Sense feature of the HTC U11.

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