Google Pixel 2 Launch Date

With the launch of many flagship devices in the recent weeks like the iPhone X, Galaxy Note8, and Mi Mix 2, Google is also getting ready to unveil its next-generation Pixel smartphones.

The new phones are likely to be called the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and are going to be made official on October 4, according to a teaser released by Google. They have published a teaser video on YouTube and also made a landing page, both mentioning October 4 as the launch date.

On visiting the landing page, you will clearly see the statement, “Thinking about changing phones?”. So Google wants you to wait until October 4 before finalizing your next smartphone. Apart from this, it asks for your email so that you are up-to-date about Google’s upcoming devices.

Google - Thinking about changing phones

The teaser video by Google is a peculiar one. It comprises of some basic but important questions about smartphones. Here are the questions:

  • What’s wrong with my phone’s battery?
  • Why is my phone always out of storage?
  • Why does my phone take so many blurry photos?
  • Why doesn’t my phone understand me?
  • Why can’t my phone update itself?
  • Why is my smartphone so slow? …hot? …fragile? …annoying? …broken? …cruel? …impersonal? …dumb?

It’s clear and simple what Google is trying to convey. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are going to offer longer battery life, will be smarter, and will update itself in the background. For the storage part, Google might add microSD card support in the next-gen Pixel phones, or just boost up their internal memory to 64/128/256 GB. As for the blurry photos, the camera of the Pixel devices will be equipped with Optical Image Stabilization, which was missing in the Pixel and Pixel XL.
