Google has already confirmed to launch the second generation of its Pixel smartphones this year. However, the company hasn’t yet revealed a precise timeframe for the launch. According to new reports, the smartphones could be launched on October 5.
This date lines up with last year’s announcement of the original Pixel handsets which took place on October 4, according to the famed and highly-accurate leakster, Evan Blass.
“Google’s second-generation ‘Pixel’ handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC’s, will be unveiled on October 5,” Blass tweeted.
“No official plans have been announced for the new handsets, but we did anticipate Google would take the wraps off of the new smartphones as well as some other devices later this fall,” says a report in “9to5Google”.
According to some rumors, the Pixel devices would sport a slimmer frame and better camera specifications this time.
Rumours have also said that the Pixel devices could come with a “squeezable” feature, similar to HTC’s flagship U11 smartphone.
