The larger Pixel 2 XL will come packing a 5.99-inch QHD display but prior to today, the official release date has been a mirage.
Evan Blass, a reputable source however revealed earlier today that Google is planning a release of the 2017 edition of the Pixel smartphones come October 5.
The Tipster further revealed that the Pixel smartphones will come packing the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 chipset better than the 835 found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
