Google Tips Oct. 4 Pixel 2 Launch

Mark your calendars for Oct. 4, Android fans. Google just released a new marketing campaign hinting that it plans to launch its next Pixel phones that day.

"Thinking about changing phones?" the company's teaser site reads. "Stay tuned for more on October 4."

It's pretty clear Google is teasing a Pixel launch; the teaser site is housed on madeby.google.com, which highlights the current Pixel lineup, as well as other Google-branded devices, like Google Home, Wifi, and Chromecast. Also telling is the fact that Google launched the original Pixel phones on Oct. 4 last year.

Though Pixel is technically a "Phone by Google," it's made by HTC. This time around, Google is expected to launch two new Pixels—the HTC-manufactured Pixel 2 and the LG-manufactured Pixel 2 XL. Rumor has it Google is following Apple's lead and ditching the headphone jack in the Pixel 2.

Both will likely run Android Oreo, the newest version of Google's mobile OS.

The original Pixel and its larger sibling, the Pixel XL, earned "excellent" ratings in PCMag's reviews. "The Pixel XL has top-notch hardware, the latest Android software, and guaranteed support from Google, making it one of the best big-screen Android phones you can buy," we wrote. If you're not into huge phones, we called the 5-inch pixel a "superb alternative."

Huawei is about to unveil its brand new flagship smartphone — the P20. While many details have already leaked, this is going to be an interesting launch. The company chose to unveil its new device at the magnificent Grand Palais in Paris. This is the first time Huawei chooses Paris to launch a major new device. Carriers and retailers in the U.S. have stopped selling Huawei devices. That might be the reason why the press conference is happening in Europe. Huawei is now the second largest phone manufacturer in the world behind Samsung and just slightly above Apple.
