Google's new smartphone debut expected 4 Oct

The teaser advertised for the upcoming Pixel 2 phones ends with Google announcing something big coming on October 4, which falls in line with the original Pixel's release previous year. Google appears to be planning a launch event for its second-generation of Pixel devices 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.

With the Galaxy Note 8, iPhone 8, and iPhone X all behind us, Google's upcoming Pixel phones are two more exciting options for potential buyers. Then hinting at potential features by asking "Why does my phone take so many blurry photos?". This is exactly one year after Google launched original Pixel smartphone, which claimed to feature the best smartphone camera ever created. The Pixel was also the first phone to feature Google Assistant, Google's artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant.

The detail that suggests that the application is for the Pixel XL 2 is the GO11C model number referenced, which is close to the Pixel 2's GO11A.

It looks like the Pixel 2 series might be announced on October 4.

What we do know is that the new Google Pixel 2 smartphone will come with the latest version of Google's mobile OS, Android 8.0 Oreo. We don't doubt the October 4 launch but we're curious why it's the same as last year's unveiling. And since Huawei has stopped making the device, Google has chose to offer a better replacement - a spanking new Pixel XL.
