What to expect from Google’s Pixel 2 reveal event

However, that isn’t all the search giant will announce.


We are just a couple of days from the Google’s biggest hardware product launch event as it all will be unveiled on Wednesday, October 4. The Pixel 2, just like last year’s Pixel will be a stellar device. However, details of this product remain scarce.

Both Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will feature stereo speakers on the front.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about the device through this listing, such as its audio specifications.

– Of the the, the Pixel 2 XL is a more exciting phone.

Pixel 2 may come with 5.5 inch display while Pixel XL might sport a 6 inch screen.

A leaked Best Buy Canada flyer posted on Reddit mentions Google Pixel 2 preorder, seemingly confirming that only the smaller phone should be available for preorder in the coming days. A Twitter user who lives nearby reported that he is getting an notification which will allow him to pair his Google Home Mini with his phone. But not much information is available as of now. Like most top notch smartphone launches in this year Google’s much awaited Pixel 2 and 2 XL were also leaked on social media. At least according to rumors. There is a high possibility though, as the mini smart speaker would be the flawless bonus to get customers to purchase the Pixel 2.

This isn’t the first leak for Google’s upcoming slate of products.

The event will kick off at 9pm EDT (9.30pm IST).

Not only will the Pixel 2 and 2 XL ditch the headphone jack, but they’ll also come without a ruddy SIM slot, according to the leak. The phone will use Android Oreo software, and likely to come with (temporarily) exclusive software features like Google Lens app, which was announced at the Google I/O. The Pixelbook is said to run on Chrome OS. The Chromebook Pixel and Pixel 2 were two of the best laptops running Google’s slim operating system, and a new one is rumored for tomorrow. If you want the Pixel 2 XL, you will have to shell out $849 for the 64GB variant and $949 for the 128GB model. “The new Pixelbook will feature a 12.3” display powered by an Intel Core i5 chipset.


The Pixelbook is expected to sell at the a top-tier premium price point of the Chromebook, with the base model starting at a whopping $1,199, with a separate stylus pen accessory quite similar to the Microsoft Surface Pen. The other two – the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – aren’t quite so fancy, but offer up a much cheaper alternative to the sky-high prices of the iPhone X. Then, additional storage and performance options may increase to upwards of $1,700 with 512GB of storage.
