Google is indeed very excited about its five new hardware products launch event on October 4th that include Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Google has already set up live stream video page on its YouTube channel and the thumbnail indicated that the Made by Google event would happen until October 4th.

[agg-ad id=”442″ align=”center”][agg-ad id=”438″ align=”left”]The 4th of October exactly marks the first birthday of the original Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones.

The Mountain View-headquartered tech company is highly-anticipated to launch the aforementioned phones’ successors, Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, in that previously mentioned date.

The new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL product line is widely expected to come with an improved rear-facing camera shooter, beefier internal storage, front panel audio stereo speakers, and nearly invisible bezels on the larger Pixel 2 XL.

The latest leaks coming in the for of images from Droid Life and adding a weight from industry analyst reports – as well as code within a public beta of the the firm’s Android Oreo mobile operating system software update. The leak also revealed the storage configuration of both Pixels — 64GB and 128GB.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are widely tipped to hit the marketplaces shelves with the same display dimension as to their original iterations, 5-inch and 5.5-inch, respectively.

The search engine goddess will reportedly trim down the left ans right bezels as well as the top and bottom around the larger screen display on the Pixel 2 XL to lessen the overall dimension and wight of the phone.

The second-generation Pixels handsets will also be an IP68 dust and water resistant, the report suggested. Water-proof and dust resistance has become a standard across flagship smartphones not only in Android ecosystem but in the mobile industry and it would be nice to see the Alphabet’s subsidiary join the trend this 2017.

There are also speculations claiming Google is looking to completely remove the 3.5mm audio jack port in favor of the more advanced USB Type-C technology.

There’s a growing wave among the flagship phone makers getting rid if the analog 3.5mm headphone jack that has long been the norm connector for a massive extent of audio equipment over the past decades.

Apple, Motorola, and other OEMs have all launched their flagship smartphones lacking the industry-standard analog audio port, and now Google seems to follow the trend. Last year, Motorola’s Moto Z and Apple iPhone 7 and recently unveiled iPhone 8 and iPhone X doesn’t feature a 3.5mm audio jack port. One of the advantages being recommended about the move over to USB Type-C audio is that it will definitely improve digital music quality.

[agg-ad id=”438″ align=”left”]Like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well this year’s refreshed iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus alongside the top-of-the-line iPhone X, Google could bundle a USB-C to 3.5mm auxiliary jack port dongle.

According to the long time all Android news publication, the entry-level 64GB storage configuration of the Google Pixel 2 XL set you back $849, and the higher 128GB storage variant is priced at $949. The smaller Google Pixel 2 will hit the market with a price tag of $749 for the base model.

Considering that the Apple iPhone X is up for purchase for $999, a $50 more than the most pricey mode of the Pixel 2 XL, this will certainly give the consumers a second thought. Google has opted to raise the bar and elevate the competition by making the Pixel phones a premium flagship smartphone releases, with this $80 retail price surge.
