Google on Thursday fired off invitations to a 4 October event at which the USA tech giant is expected to field a second-generation Pixel as its new champion in the competitive smartphone market. Until now that is.
The report showcased an image of an advertising holding from Boston which comes with a tag line "Ask more of your phone" with a Google logo and launch date at the bottom.
Google is indeed taking things to the next level with their Pixel smartphones - it is expected that while the Pixel 2 would feature a regular phone with a squeezable edges, the Pixel XL 2 would feature a bezel-less design too. Without offering further details, the site then invites visitors to "Stay tuned for more on October 4" and asks them to submit their email addresses to receive updates about new devices and more from Google.
Next, Google essentially confirms that these questions are valid points.
Ahead of the unveiling, the larger Pixel XL 2 has been spotted passing through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification process. So, Google might be bringing in the Optical Image Stabilisation to the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 replacing the Electronic counterpart from past year. Rumor also had it that the Google Pixel 2 will feature Active Edge, something similar to the Edge Sense feature of the HTC U11. What's interesting is that the Pixel and Pixel XL were actually revealed on October 4, 2016, which means their successors might make their debut exactly one year later.
Both phones are expected to continue with metal backs that transition to a glass window near the top of the phone, but the glass window will be smaller on the new phones.
Barring a few bugs, the Google Pixel arguably established itself as the best Android smartphone previous year with unarguably the best picture quality from its primary camera. We are not sure as to how long Google will be offering the Pixel XL as an alternative option though.
Owners of faulty Nexus 6P units including those whose one year warranty has elapsed are eligible for the replacements.
Google doesn't want you to think about iPhone X anymore.
