Until now that is.

When we last checked in with Google's 2017 flagship, we were working off a tweet from VentureBeat's Evan Blass claiming that the phone would launch October 5th and come with a new "Snapdragon 836" SoC. The said billboard has only five words written on top, "Ask more of your phone", along with the G logo and the date October 4.

Google has unexpectedly confirmed the launch date for the second models of its Pixel-branded smartphones. Google has launched a teaser site and a video asking dissatisfied smartphone users to "stay tuned for more on October 4".

As per a tip sent to Google-focused website Droid-Life, a billboard appeared in downtown Boston suggests that we won't have to wait long to see what the Mountain View company has in store.

We all know that Google has partnered with HTC to manufacture the Pixel and Pixel XL. The company did the same thing a year ago with a large silhouette of the Pixel device that was spotted in New York City.

Terror related arrests reach record high
The number of people arrested on suspicion of terrorist offences has risen by more than two thirds in a year to a record high. By the end of June this year, 204 people in the United Kingdom were in custody for terrorism-related offences in the country.

The Pixel 2 XL will be built by LG and come with a 6” FullVision screen like the one in the LG G6.

After Apple is done with showing off its courageous innovations in the form of iPhone 8 and iPhone X, it's time to shift our attention to the mighty world of Android. It could have been a third device code-named Muskie that Google killed in favor of the LG-made Pixel XL 2. This year, the company is preparing to introduce successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets. Interestingly, this poses a question that if Google Pixel 2 is G011A and Pixel XL 2 is G011C, what happened to "G011B", the alleged "Muskie" smartphone.

We'll have more information in less than a mont, but based on the landing page and tagline, it seems like Google will be emphasizing its virtual Assistant again with this hardware revision. Ask more of your phone.

HTC's FCC application last month revealed that the Pixel 2 will have squeezable sides just like the HTC U11's Edge Sensor.
