Pixel 2: Launch date probably on October 5th
With the Pixel and Pixel XL Google had launched in October last year two potent well-equipped smartphones, which received very positive reviews in the press.
Also the successors, pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL, will again belong to the upper middle class, if not to the premium class. Leaker Evan Blass has announced on Twitter the supposed launch date. According to this, the 5th of October will be the presentation date for both smartphones. The same date is also the website The Verge.
Snapdragon 836 processor on board
With pixel 2 and pixel XL2, Google is likely to enter the Smartphone Premium class. In the previous models, the Qualcomm Snapragon 821 is responsible for the drive, rumored to be used in the new models of the Snapdragon 836 chip. This is, however, only a slightly modified version of the Snapdragon 835 processor.
Google is not going to change the design much and is probably aimed at the 2016 models. Probably the Pixel 2 is manufactured by HTC and the Phablet variant pixel 2 XL of LG. The new Android version 8.0 Oreo will be preinstalled. Both pixel devices should also be protected against water and dust. It also assumes a 5.6-inch diagonal display (Pixel XL 2), which is in 18: 9 format and achieves a resolution of 2,560 x 1,312 pixels. The smaller pixel 2 is to have a 4.97-inch display with full-HD.
