Google has uploaded a cryptic website indicating that we can expect a Pixel 2 announcement on the 4th of October. Earlier today and FCC ruling also showed that LG would be the manufacturer for the Pixel 2 XL, joining HTC who will manufacture the standard sized Pixel 2.

After weeks of speculating on when we might receive the next Google Pixel phone, Google has gone and done what they do best — made a minimalistic and cryptic website indicating when we can expect the new device.

When navigating to the new site you are greeted with a Google logo on a blank page that asks, “Thinking about changing phones?” before then switching to “Stay tuned for more on October 4.” Those interested in receiving updates can enter their email address to subscribe to a product newsletter.

There was also related Pixel 2 news reported earlier today by Android Authority about an FCC filing that confirmed LG would be the manufacturer for the larger Pixel 2 XL, showing that Google was returning to the method used for the last few Nexus devices by having separate manufacturers for the ‘standard’ and ‘XL’ versions of the phone. HTC had already been confirmed as the producer for the smaller Pixel 2 and is currently the manufacturer of both the Pixel and Pixel XL.

We aren’t sure how many company specific additions there will be on each phone since Google now controls the design process, something which they left to the manufacturers with the Nexus phones.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
