Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 plans confirmed ahead of launch


Google will use an upcoming press event to show off its two new smartphones. That’s according to anonymous insiders speaking with The Guardian, who say the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be revealed on 4th October.

Both devices have long been mooted, with HTC making the smaller, 5–inch Pixel 2 and LG producing the larger Pixel XL 2 on behalf of Google.

The former is said to come in blue, black and white, with the same glass and metal design as last year’s predecessor. The latter will feature an LG G6–style finish, with bezel–free frame.

As previously reported, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will come with pressure sensitive sides, mimicking the HTC U11’s squeeze controls. These were widely seen as a gimmick when that phone hit shelves earlier this year.

Both phones will come with 64GB or 128GB storage, 4GB RAM and the latest Qualcomm processors to ensure they work at lightning pace. A single lens 12 megapixel camera completes the package, meaning Google will not be able to match the dual camera smarts found on the latest efforts from Apple and Samsung.

Final pricing is yet to be confirmed, but is expected to be broadly in line with existing Pixel smartphones. They start from £600 SIM–free.
