We are certain the next-gen Pixel phones, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, will be revealed together with the Google Home Mini, a PixelBook, and a new Daydream View.

The smaller device, the Pixel 2, will be available in Kinda Blue, Clearly White and Just Black and will be sold with 64GB and 128GB of storage and priced at $649 (THB22,000) and $749 (THB25,000), respectively, according to Droid Life. It has the same glass+metal design like the last year's Pixel smartphones except that the glass area is lesser than before.

According to the report, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will share 4GB of RAM, 12MP rear-facing cameras and 64GB/128GB storage options.

Pixel 2 XL will be an LG make and may have an edge-to-edge display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The handsets will come with a 12 megapixel rear camera and will feature Android 8.0 Oreo.

Facebook now testing face ID of its own
The social giant said the feature is now undergoing testing, but did not provide a specific timeline for its release. For years now, they have been tracking faces to help users tag friends, though they are not always accurate.

Evan Blass' leaks have shown the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in their full glory, and both of them look good. Meanwhile, the XL is said to feature a 6-inch QHD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to the Galaxy S8.

As you can see from the leaked pictures, both the phones get a radical redesign from the previous generation. However, fans are not really impressed with the images of the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones. The Pixel 2, on the other hand, might keep those big bezels intact. The event is scheduled to take place on October 4 and we can soon confirm how impressive the new flagship models are, especially with the Apple iPhone X around the corner.

It's not clear how it will actually work at the moment or if it will have more features, and we probably won't know until Wednesday. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, will be $849/$949 United States dollars ($1o69/$1187 CAD). The 64GB model will cost $849, while the 128GB model will jump to $949. The Google Pixel 2 will start shipping from October 19, whereas the Pixel 2 XL will be shipped from November 15, which is more than a month from the official launch.
