Google is reportedly preparing itself to launch the next set of Pixel smartphones, tentatively called Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. The next generation of Google handsets is expected to release on October 5, according to well-known and reliable leaker Evan Blass.
If Evan's claim is proven to be true then the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be introduced almost exactly a year after the original Pixels. The two new smartphone will reportedly manufacture by HTC and LG. The devices will share most specifications, including their processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 836, as reported by Android Authority.
The Google Pixel 2 was recently spotted on the US FCC website that suggested that the smartphone will be manufactured by HTC. The documentation also revealed that the Pixel 2 will boast a squeezable frame similar to the HTC U11. The website wrote that the Google Pixel 2 will come running on Android 8.0.1 Oreo, which is expected since the Pixels are among the first to receive the latest Android version, as reported by NDTV.
On the specifications side, the Google Pixel 2 is said to come with 64GB and 128GB of built-in storage variants and will support NFC, Bluetooth, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The flagship from Google will boast 4GB of RAM and it is also been tipped to sport an 'Always On' display mode.
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, both the smartphones are expected to feature a 4.95-inch full-HD and 5.99-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) displays, which all will be manufactured by LG. Moreover, the upcoming Google Pixel flagships are also expected to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack just like the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
