The two first-ever devices designed by Google are all set to receive their successor as the new campaign by Google mentions. “Thinking about changing phones” stay tuned for more on October 4. The page also asks for an email address for future updates.
Rumors have been that the Google Pixel would be coming out in two variants. The Pixel 2 codenamed as Walleye and the Pixel 2 XL codenamed as Taimen.
As per the rumors flying around, which are said to be official. It is expected that the Pixel 2 would be rolled out with a 4.97-inch full HD display running on Android 8.0.1 Oreo. And with a special squeeze feature allowing the user to perform various tasks just by squeezing the device. Also, as per the FCC listing, it is said that HTC would be manufacturing the Google Pixel 2. On the other hand LG would be manufacturing the Pixel 2 XL.
Rumors also suggest that the Pixel 2 may be powered by a Snapdragon 836 processor. But sources say that Qualcomm is not in a mood to launch an upgraded version of its chipset. So we will have to wait to see whether the Pixel 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 836 or 835 processor.
Pixel 2 might have two front-facing stereo speakers due to which we may miss the 3.5mm headphone jack. The substitute for this would be to use an adapter that would likely be included in the box with the device.
Rumors about the camera in the Pixel 2 would put many people in shock. Rumours say that Google would not be following the legacy of the back dual-camera setup as followed by LG, OnePlus and the others. Yet the camera on the Pixel 2 would be as good or maybe even better than the camera in its predecessor. In the previous year, the main shooter of Google Pixel stood second with a DxOMark of 89 just below the HTC U11 with a DxOMark of 90.

Also, it could easily survive being submerged in 1-1.5 meters water up to 30 minutes. Rumours also mention that the Pixel XL 2 would be similar to the Pixel 2 in many ways. The Pixel XL 2 is expected to have a 4GB Ram packed with a Snapdragon 835 or 836. It is the same camera as the Pixel 2 and a storage of 128GB.
