Google Pixel 2 launch date set for October 4
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.
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.
