The Pixel 2 will be manufactured by HTC as sighted on an FCC listing. The company did the same thing a year ago with a large silhouette of the Pixel device that was spotted in New York City. There will still be two devices to be introduced-the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2. Stay tuned, as we dig more into this so, watch out more for this space. The 3.5 mm headphone jack is also supposed to get the axe this year with Google opting for a single USB-C port on the phone. 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. The billboard doesn't actually say that October 4 is the day Google will unveil the new handsets.

The Google Pixel 2 teaser video asks some interesting questions, which could be easily related to the upcoming features and improvements in the device. A Google billboard in Boston is the one that suggests this launch date.

This could mean that either the new Pixel phones would release with the Snapdragon 840/845 processor or could come with the Snapdragon 835 processor like the rest of the flagship phones this year.

In other words, we can expect the next Pixel smartphones to arrive on 4 October. Additionally, Google's LG-made Pixel XL 2 recently hit the FCC.

However, while a new device and that too from a company as popular as Google is bound to evoke a lot of enthusiasm, the Pixel 2 range could still be missing the oomph factor. Rumor also had it that the Google Pixel 2 will feature Active Edge, something similar to the Edge Sense feature of the HTC U11.

Would you wait for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL or are you going to settle for a different smartphone? Many former Nexus 6P owners have also reported that they have received 32GB Pixel Xl smartphones as warranty replacements, while some seem to have even received 128GB models.
