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.

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."
