Now Google Pixel 2 XL has passed through FCC, revealing LG as the manufacturer. Now it seems that more Pixel 2 information has surfaced as it has made its way through the FCC certification process. Today, LG has filed a patent for a new smartphone in FCC. This seemingly corroborates the theory that there was supposed to be another Pixel XL 2, one that would have been made by HTC as well.
Now, a billboard that has been spotted in Boston by DroidLife hints that Google will be hosting an event on October 4 to unveil the second generation Pixel smartphones. Since the Pixel 2 XL is being built by LG, the G011B could be the model number of HTC’s Pixel 2 that has been cancelled. Sadly, this recent sighting at the FCC of the Pixel 2 manufactured by LG barely has anything to tell us other than it exists.
According to the report, there are several reasons to suspect the filing is the Pixel 2 XL. It reveals the United States cellular bands, and the presence of Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth and NFC (hardly earth shattering). We’ll let you know if we find anything else before the launch.
Notably, back in 2016, the original Pixel smartphones were announced on October 4 and some countries such as India received the device on October 5.
With still almost three weeks until the announcement of the new Pixel devices we can be sure that there will be quite a few more leaks detailing what we can expect from Google’s second attempt at their own phone manufacturing.
