Google Pixel 2 Will Release on October 4th and it’s Expected to Deliver, According to Rumors

Although we don’t know much about the Google Pixel 2, other than the fact that it is to launch on October 4th, there is much speculation floating around on what the next generation Pixel will include in terms of improvements and updates.  With the success the first generation Pixel saw, we are sure that the Pixel 2 will be an exciting upgrade.

Google’s ad above does seem to provide some insight as to what the Pixel 2 may include.  With a plethora of questions popping up in a Google Search Engine such as “what’s wrong with my phone’s battery?” “why does my phone take so many blurry photos?” “why doesn’t my phone understand me” “why can’t my phone update itself?” we get an idea of what may be coming with the new Pixel 2.

Some of the rumors surrounding the new Pixel mention that the new phone may come with a Snapdragon 836 chipset, which means that the phone would possess the same chipset powering the Samsung S8.

Another rumor states that the new Pixel will have squeezable edges, allowing the user to operate the phone and open applications like the camera with a simple squeeze.  If this is, indeed, a new feature to be included on the phone, it will definitely be a fun, new addition that is only now found on the HTC U11.

In any event, the questions included in the video above do hint that the Pixel 2 will include a longer battery life, a better camera, the ability for it to update itself as well as a Google Assistant, which means there is going to be more than a few things to look forward to!  But until October 4th, we will not know for sure although that date is very much right around the corner!

The New Headquarter – The new $5 billion headquarter campus itself has also created a big buzz since it was planned. Though it is still being completed, Apple told WSJ the event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theatre, a 1,000-seat auditorium that is located inside a circular, glass-walled structure with a heavy, carbon-fiber roof that was designed to resemble a MacBook Air suspended in space.
