Google's billboard hints at October 4 reveal date for Pixel 2 series

Google will debut its new hardware – Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 – on October 4th

To recall, the next iteration of Pixel smartphones will be manufactured by the LG and HTC respectively. On the other hand, industry insiders previously claimed that the Pixel XL 2 will boast a relatively bezel-free design and adopt a display panel with a tall aspect ratio of 18:9, i.e. 2:1. What Google wants users to "stay tuned" for is the Pixel 2, the sequel to the Google Pixel.

In the meantime, have you contacted Google about your Nexus 6P? That couldn't get any more obvious unless Google just came out and said it was the Pixel 2. We don't doubt the October 4 launch but we're curious why it's the same as last year's unveiling. Instead of waiting for users to mail their defective phones, Google will gladly send the replacement units immediately after obtaining a report about the problematic device. Interestingly, Taiwanese news site Commercial Times last week reported that Google is in the final stages of acquiring HTC's smartphone business. According to the latest rumors, Google will announce the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL at the event, which will be quite similar in terms of specs.

Although we had previously penciled in October 5 as the debut date for the new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones, Google has confirmed both phones will actually debut on October 4.
