Google (GOOGL) to Hold Pixel 2 Launch Event on October 4

With still almost three weeks until the announcement of the new Pixel devices we can be sure that there will be quite a few more leaks detailing what we can expect from Google's second attempt at their own phone manufacturing. Last year's Pixel event took place on October 4, and the appearance of a billboard in Boston suggests that the same date will be used this year. And while the invite doesn't specifically mention the new Pixel 2, that's exactly what we expect to see.

Other devices that may get a chance in the spotlight during Google's event, which will be held in San Francisco, include a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker, which is most likely meant to compete with the Amazon Echo Dot.

"Why does my phone take such blurry videos from afar" was the question I queried last weekend after attending the Trace Adkins concert at the Los Angeles County Fair.

Google is set to unveil the Pixel 2, the successor to its well-received Pixel phone, early next month.

I knew Golovkin would be exposed as another HBO creation similar to Manny Pacquiao. Gennady "Triple G" Golovkin will face off against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez .

That will all change as the Pixel XL 2 has just reached the FCC. If you recall, the company launched the Pixel and Pixel XL on 4 October 2016.

Google hasn't officially confirmed that it will introduce the new Pixel devices on that date, but we probably won't have to wait long before that happens. It hints at the features that'll be highlighted at the unveiling, for example, "What's wrong with my phone's battery?" or "Why is my phone always out of storage?".

Unlike HTC, LG has done a pretty good job concealing the numbers and other details of the Pixel 2 XL. Also, Google will be removing the headphone jack from the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 if reports are to be true. Plus, Google has this "advance exchange" approach to replacing Nexus 6Ps with Pixel XLs.

Both the smartphone are expected to come with HTC proprietary Edge Sense technology which allows users to convey the command to their phone by squeezing the side frame of the phone by the hand.
