Google is to plan the presentation of the new pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL for the 5th of October 2017. This is Evan Blass, who recently presented pictures of the smaller of the two new models. As SoC, Google is to use an optimized Snapdragon 835 (test), which bears the designation Snapdragon 836.
However, there is not yet much information on this variant, which Qualcomm obviously plans to use as a transitional solution until the release of Snapdragon 845. Both new pixels come from the factory with Android 8.0 “Oreo” (test) therefore.
Google’s second-generation pixel handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC’s, will be unveiled on October 5th.
