Google is replacing defective Nexus 6P units with Pixel XLs, but only in North America

Always on Ambient Display Google Pixel 2

To start with, the Google Pixel XL 2 will be LG made. The company did the same thing a year ago with a large silhouette of the Pixel device that was spotted in New York City.

That said, don't expect any Google or Pixel 2 XL mentions in the documentation.

Stay Tuned with us.

The Nexus 6P was launched by Google two years ago to much fanfare, with the VP of Engineering, Hiroshi Lockheimer, explaining that the "P" stood for premium, and that the device was designed as a premium smartphone. Aside from hardware improvements, Google will likely also push more AI-powered features with the Pixel 2, especially features relating to Google Assistant. Google's marketing campaign comes after Apple revealed the iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices this week.

The Google Pixel 2 teaser video asks some interesting questions, which could be easily related to the upcoming features and improvements in the device.

The website and video come after a recently spotted billboard in Boston read "Ask more of your phone", with the October 4 date and Google's multi-colored "G" logo. It is worth noting that Google a year ago also launched its Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 smartphones on October 4. It could have been a third device code-named Muskie that Google killed in favor of the LG-made Pixel XL 2.

By the time Google actually launches the Pixel 2, we'll probably already know most of what gets revealed. The original date rumored was October 5, but a new billboard hinted at October 4. It's expected to run on a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM, come with squeezable sides like the HTC U11, pack an OLED display and IP68 waterproofing and, best of all, run on Android Oreo out of the box. It means we are only about three weeks away from getting our first official look at the Pixel 2. The smaller Pixel phone is called Walleye while the XL version is Taimen, according to Android Police.
