The phones feature a glossy glass and aluminum body with a rear fingerprint scanner and an AMOLED display. However, going by the model number it is safe to assume that this is indeed the gen-next Pixel smartphone from Google.

Another leak from 9to5 Google states that LG is making the bigger Google Pixel 2 XL handset, along with HTC's Pixel 2.

Why is my phone always out of storage? Then hinting at potential features by asking "Why does my phone take so many blurry photos?".

Why is my smartphone so hot?

Why is my smartphone so dumb?

Google will likely improve its virtual assistant, Google Assistant (which was first introduced with the original Pixel and XL), ready for its latest hardware.

How to find out if you're affected by the Equifax hack
After you thaw the report and are done with the transaction, you call the credit bureau back and put the freeze back on. But the fact remains that there are three major credit reporting agencies-Equifax, TransUnion and Experian .

HTC's FCC application last month revealed that the Pixel 2 will have squeezable sides just like the HTC U11's Edge Sensor.

Apple may have stolen the thunder with the iPhone X announcement, but Google certainly knows how to bring itself back into the limelight.

Under the hood, the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 will once again sport the current flagship chipset, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835. Exactly a year later, Google seems set to return with a new generation of Pixel devices. Google may also have new augmented or virtual reality features to share, which would take advantage of the Google Daydream mobile VR headset. Google has confirmed when the new handsets will be unveiled but it hasn't confirmed much more than that.

Visitors to the website will see a splash page inviting them to "Stay tuned for more on October 4" by signing up for news on the new phone via email.

Google does not want to be left behind in launching new smart phones. The billboard though doesn't really mention the smartphones, it reads, "Ask more of your phone", along with the "G" logo and the date "Oct. 4".

The locations that Google is sending Pixel XL as replacements are yet to be verified but reports indicate that consumers in the USA and Canada are only getting the Pixel smartphone.
