Google had taken the smartphone market to storm by their first ever own smartphone designed by ’em. And surely the Pixel & Pixel XL were true flagship killers. This year also we’re expecting that Google will release much better devices than their previous generation devices.
Though we don’t have much information about Google’s upcomming flagships. The first bit of information we know is that the Google Pixel 2 would be equipped with an updated version of Qualcomm’s high-end SoC, the Snapdragon 836. This actually makes a lot of sense as it’s something we saw happen last year with the transition from the Snapdragon 820 to the 821. It’s unclear if this will be a continuous trend for Qualcomm, but it certainly seems like it could be since it’s happened multiple years in a row. The second bit of information we know is that Google seems to have the launch event for the Pixel 2 scheduled for the 5th of October.
Again, this matches up with what we saw last year when Google unveiled the Pixel and Pixel XL at a small event on October 4th. This puts the launch event for the Pixel 2 about a month and a half away so be aware that this could change at any time. If they continue to follow last year’s schedule, then pre-orders will go on sale that same day and then be made available to the public later on in October.
