Google will announce its two new flagship Android handsets at an event on October 4th, reports suggest.

According to a source, the phones will be called the Pixel and Pixel XL. This marks a move away from the 'Nexus' tag that Google has until now favoured for its own-brand handsets.

Google has used the Nexus range to launch new versions of its Android operating system since 2010.

The source told Android Police that Google will also unveil other new hardware at the event, including a 4K Chromecast streaming dongle and more details of its Daydream VR virtual reality headset.

It will also give us more information about Google Home, its Amazon Echo-rivalling home speaker that houses an AI personal assistant.

The Google Pixel is believed to come in at five inches, while the Pixel XL will stand 5.5- inches tall.

Both are believed to be made by HTC – the manufacturer of the original Nexus handset, the Nexus One – though they will reportedly lack any HTC branding.
