Google's Pixel XL 2 to be made by LG, reveals FCC listing

14 September 2017

The date is exactly one year from when Google announced its first premium smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL. A billboard spotted by a Droid Life reader indicates that the Pixel 2 launch event will take place on Wednesday, October 4.

The video highlights the types of questions people ask about their phones on its search engine. A smartphone with the ZNFG011C code name was found in FCC's listing, which was different from last year's Pixel XL codename.

Google doesn't want you to think about iPhone X anymore.

On the Pixel 2 it's called Active Edge and will launch Assistant. This year, the company is preparing to introduce successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets.

The original Pixel lineup was available for purchase in late October and the upcoming two devices are likely to follow that same release pattern, though it remains to be seen whether they end up debuting in more territories. And since Huawei has stopped making the device, Google has chose to offer a better replacement - a spanking new Pixel XL.

Hurricane Irma hit southwest Florida on Sunday, downing power lines, uprooting trees and turning streets into rivers. The company's system will need to be rebuilt, particularly in the western part of the state, Gould said.

One of the more controversial likelihoods for the Pixel 2 is that Google could ditch the 3.5-mm headphone jack, a decision that seems to be increasingly common in newer smartphones. If a person has not bought the phone straight from Google then they won't be offered a Pixel XL as a replacement. Only Nexus 6P owners residing in the US and Canada have a good chance of getting Pixel XL replacements should they turn in their defective devices.

Both the smartphone are expected to come with HTC proprietary Edge Sense technology which allows users to convey the command to their phone by squeezing the side frame of the phone by the hand. Those are the only specifications we know about the handset so far.
