Google Pixel 2 billboard in Boston hints at an October 4 launch

Google is replacing defective Nexus 6P units with Pixel XLs, but only in North America

Now that the dust has finally settled over the iPhone X, smartphone enthusiasts will be able to now focus on the next big release of the year, which is the new Pixel range from Google.

Last year's Pixel event also coincided with the introduction of the Google Home speaker as well as Google's own multi-router mesh Wifi system.

Pricing on a Pixel 2 remained to be seen, but the original handset competes in the premium segment of the market. The caption line "ask more of your phone" is reported to hint at Google Assistant doing more work for users on the phones than earlier.

Why does my phone take so many blurry photos? "Why doesn't my phone understand me?" and "Why can't my phone update itself?". The clip ends with "Funny you should ask". Therefore, it makes sense for Google to provide Pixel XL replacements for Nexus 6P phones that have problems not related to software, as per Phone Arena. As the conference is just less than a month away, we can expect the invites to be sent out soon.

The better the phone, the more consumers want to use it. Here's everything we know so far.

The rear design of the 2nd generation Pixel devices will also be similar to their predecessors with a combination of a metal and a glass back. While the image above is just a fan-made render, it's based on trusted leaks.

Google doesn't want you to think about iPhone X anymore. As the competition has already heated up in the flagship segment with the launch of Note 8, LG V30, and iPhone 8. It's also supposed to have slimmer bezels and run on Android Oreo. According to an FCC filing, the Pixel 2 XL is indeed going to be manufactured by the Korean company, meaning that there are a lot of exciting things to look forward to during the official announcement day.

Samsung has included Always On functionality on its flagship smartphones for a number of years, which allows users to quickly check the time, app notifications, and more, without having to wake the display.
