So here comes Google’s answer to iPhone X. The company has sent out press invites and launched a new marketing campaign to mark the date of October 4, when it’s going to launch its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. It seems that Apple’s monopoly in press coverage is about to come to an end very soon.
Unofficial reports had been hinting on a launch around 5th of October for quite some time, and now Google has made it official that it’s going to release the next generation of Pixel smartphones exactly a year after the launch of first Pixel smartphones. In case you don’t remember, the original Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones were also launched on 4th of October last year.
Now it’s the same date this year when Google has decided to come out with successors of both those devices. A new landing page has been set up by the company on its madeby.google.com website, which asks the visitors who’re thinking about changing phones to submit their email addresses and wait till 4th of October for more details.
The company has also released a teaser video as part of the campaign, which suggests us to ask some “funny” questions about our phone to Google on October 4.
The questions revolve around the battery, camera, voice recognition, self updates and durability, which suggests that next generation of Pixel devices are likely to have some notable improvements in these areas. You can see the teaser video below:
To recall, Google Pixel 2 XL is rumored to come with Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, narrow bezels, pressure sensitive sides, IP68 water resistance and possibly optical image stabilization too, as the teaser video put out by Google also asks a question related to blurry photos.
Pixel 2, on the other hand, is likely to be more or less the same as its predecessor. We’ve also seen a leaked image of Pixel 2 XL, which you can see above. Rest we’re gonna come to know by October 4, so let’s wait and watch.
