It is official. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be announced on October 4, exactly a year after the first Pixels were announced. The original date rumored was October 5, but a new billboard hinted at October 4. Today, Google confirmed the date via a new video and their Made By Google website.
While the video and website do not directly mention the new Pixel devices, it is abundantly clear through the verbiage on the video. The video contains generic search times such as “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?”, and a few others.
It is very clear that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will heavily focus on battery life, the camera, and Google Assistant. These were staples of the first Pixel device, so it is no surprise they are advertising it again. With the debut date inching closer and closer, we should learn more and more about the upcoming devices, so stay tuned. The official teaser video can be seen below.
