The filing reveals that LG will manufacture the device.

Ahead of the unveiling, the larger Pixel XL 2 has been spotted passing through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certification process. The Pixel and Pixel XL 2 were widely praised for their excellent cameras, and were consistently ranked near the top for quality. Now it seems that more Pixel 2 information has surfaced as it has made its way through the FCC certification process.

The website asks users if they're "tired" of their smartphones and asks them to keep an eye out on October 4.

A few days back we reported that Google will announce the second generation of Pixel devices on October 5, a day after the first generation Pixel devices were announced in 2016. What could be a better way to distract ourselves from an unaffordable $999 luxury than the upcoming Google Pixel 2?

But gamers still want the original, so the company is giving into the demand and the console will be back on the market in 2018. The console ($60) touts 30 built-in games, including "Mario Bros." and " Donkey Kong ", and a retro-inspired controller.

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. This date is in line with last year's Pixel October 4 launch, a month after Android Nougat's launch.

According to some reports, the device is also going to get front facing stereo speakers.

Google Pixel 2 is around the corner, soon to be officially released.

We recently heard that the new Pixel 2 smartphone will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and not the rumored 836. They're also expected to borrow the "squeezable" side button from the HTC U 11, which will probably be used to launch the Google Assistant.

The detail that suggests that the application is for the Pixel XL 2 is the GO11C model number referenced, which is close to the Pixel 2's GO11A. Google is resisting the industry trend of dual rear cameras, but it's not resisting the inexplicable industry conspiracy to kill the headphone jack.
