Google Pixel 2 Smartphones to Come from HTC and LG, Set for Launch on October 4th



We have already seen the flagship smartphone launches from the major manufacturers like Samsung, LG, and Sony. Earlier this week, Apple also launched three new iPhones namely iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. At the IFA 2017, Huawei teased the launch of Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro smartphones on October 16th in Munich. Now, Google has officially confirmed to unveil the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 as the successors to last year’s Google Pixel and Pixel XL. However, the official announcement comes just hours after the leaks revealing the launch date.

While both the first-gen Pixel devices are manufactured by HTC, this year only the Pixel 2 is said to come from the Taiwanese brand. LG is the another manufacturer who will be manufacturing Pixel XL 2. The FCC listing of the Pixel 2 revealed few key details like the OS, processor, and storage. It will be running on Android 8.0.1 Oreo out of the box and will be powered by 10nm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor. Instead of 32GB, the base variants of the second-gen Pixel devices will be coming with a minimum of 64GB.

The Pixel will also offer an all-new “Active Edge” feature that works same as the Edge Sense on HTC U11 smartphone. With the Active Edge, the user can squeeze the phone to interact with the device. Just yesterday, the Pixel XL 2 is also spotted on FCC confirming its manufacturer as LG. The G011A and G011C are the model numbers for the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones. Unlike HTC, the LG’s FCC listing hasn’t revealed much information. Along with the Pixel 2, the LG-made Pixel XL 2 becomes the first smartphones to run on Android 8.0.1 Oreo.

While the HTC is adding its in-house Edge Sense feature to the Pixel 2, LG’s Pixel XL 2 will sport the FullVision display with minimal bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio. On the other hand, the Pixel 2 will be coming with a large chunk of free space on the top and bottom of the display. Both the devices are expected to feature a rear-facing fingerprint sensor. Since the official launch date is less than three weeks away, we can expect more leaks to follow soon. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
