Google Replacing Defective Nexus 6Ps with Pixel XL for Free

Hate Android Oreo's new emoji? You may be able to bring the blobs back in a future Android release

Either way, we only have a few more weeks to wait before Google officially unveils the new Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. Until now that is. The original date rumored was October 5, but a new billboard hinted at October 4.

Based on what we know so far, the new Pixel devices will be made by two different OEMs, one being HTC for the Pixel 2 and the other being LG for the Pixel XL 2. It includes the caption "Ask more of your phone" along with Google's "G" logo and the date Oct.4 at the bottom.

The picture below suggests that Google will announce their new Pixel smartphones on the 4th of October.

It's a no-brainer that Google will load their phone with the latest hardware available at the time of release and make the Pixel 2 a significant improvement over its predecessor.

Affected Nexus 6P users can avail this free replacement offer by heading over to the Google Product Support website or by launching the support menu on your phone.

LG has filed its application at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for what appears to be Google's forthcoming Pixel XL 2.

The iPhone X is going to get some competition from Google this fall. The Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 phones will also run cool as a cucumber, it seems, if Google's teaser video that it just shared on Twitter is to be gone by. Now, it's Google's turn to show off their next flagship smartphone - the Google #Pixel 2 and XL 2.

This could mean that either the new Pixel phones would release with the Snapdragon 840/845 processor or could come with the Snapdragon 835 processor like the rest of the flagship phones this year. Grab the popcorn and stay tuned for all the exciting (and not-so-exciting) leaks up until that event.

The Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 are codenamed as Walleye and Taimen. Google Lens, which was demoed at I/O 2017, will nearly certainly debut on the new Pixel phones.

"Why does my phone take such blurry videos from afar" was the question I queried last weekend after attending the Trace Adkins concert at the Los Angeles County Fair.
