Update: The event is going live any second now and you can watch it right here with us!
The smartphone market is thick with competition but there's no doubt that Android and iOS run the show. Apple just wrapped up a major event that included the reveal of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the (potentially) groundbreaking iPhone X. Not to be outdone, it looks like Google is coming hot on Apple's heels with an event on October 4th dedicated to the Pixel 2.
Engadget reports that the somewhat cryptic video above corroborates a few rumors about the phone, including the previously predicted release date in October. The video implies improvements for the battery, storage, camera, and Google Assistant but there are no official details out just yet.
HTC is rumored to be creating the smaller Pixel model and LG will handle the larger AMOLED XL model. Other rumored specs include 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, squeeze controls, a new Snapdragon processor, and more. No matter what, the presentation for this new device should involve some VR updates and some cool implementation of augmented reality content taking advantage of the recently announced ARCore. Stay tuned for more information as it's made available.
