Google Pixel 2 rumors: everything we expect from the new phones

The report further mentions that Google Pixel 2 will be available from October 19, while the Pixel 2 XL will be available from November 15. Here's how to watch livestream.

Also, with Apple's new iPhone X handset jumping in the augmented reality space and its ARKit, Google may also offer updates to its ARCore platform, its replacement for its Tango project.

Google is scheduled to unveil its highly anticipated Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL during the upcoming days. Google might change these hardware specifications at the last moment and we might end up seeing a different configuration altogether.

Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL?

20/9/17: Droid-Life has leaked an official-looking image of the Pixel 2 XL, Google's bigger, LG-built Android Oreo flagship. "Just ahead of the launch, an unidentified Google-branded handset dubbed, "#Ultra Pixel", has been leaked online. It maintains the 16:9 aspect ratio of its predecessor but gets dual front facing speakers. Now, all eyes will be on the event if Google can spring something unexpected. The two devices are reportedly manufactured by HTC and LG, respectively. This purported high-end Chromebook could feature a 2-in-1 convertible design, complete with a touchscreen and a special Pixelbook Pen designed for accurate drawing. It also comes in two variants: 64 GB (US$849) and 128 GB (US$949).

Another interesting note about the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL is that the phones will come with built-in capacity to recognize music. The 128GB storage option is said to be priced at $749 (Rs 49,003 approx).

We've been hearing that Google Assistant is coming to Chromebooks for a while now. The range of products expected to debut include a mini connected speaker, a laptop, refreshed VR headset, and more... but what always interests us most are the phones. The Pixel 2 will likely come in three colors - Just Black, Clearly White, and Kinda Blue. Not much is know about the Daydream View 2 at this point of time.

The new model (pictured above) will go up against the Amazon Echo Dot, but full details surrounding it are scarce at the moment.
