Google’s big event is just around the corner, and Android fans can hardly wait to see what the search giant is about to reveal on the fourth day of October. This year, we have seen phone manufacturers such as LG, Samsung and Apple made significant design changes with their flagship devices; it’s now Google’s turn to unveil what they have been developing for the past year.

On Oct. 4, Google is expected to unveil their next iteration of the Pixel lineup, in addition to a new device that would directly compete with the Amazon Echo show and a Pixel Laptop revival.

Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2

The most anticipated devices that people are waiting for are the next-generation Pixel smartphones – the Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2.

According to CNET, the latest handhelds are being manufactured by HTC and LG respectively. This time around, Google is expected to add features that were missing from last year’s flagships, including water resistance.

The search engine giant is also said to be adding a feature to the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 very similar to the HTC U11’s Edge Sense, where a user can squeeze the phone to perform specific tasks such as launching apps. Furthermore, don’t expect the latest Google devices to have the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The latest Pixel devices are expected to compete with their biggest rivals, the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the iPhone X.
