VentureBeat’s Evan Blass says he knows the date for the launch of Google’s next smartphone, the Pixel 2: October 5th. The ever-reliable leaker also says the device will come with a new SoC from Qualcomm, a “Snapdragon 836.”
Google’s second-generation Pixel handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC’s, will be unveiled on October 5th.

The report lines up well with how Google did things last year. The Google Hardware division held an event around the same time—October 4th—where it unveiled the Google Home, Google Wi-Fi, Daydream VR, a 4k Chromecast, and the Google Pixel phones. This year, in addition to the phones, Android Police claims Google will also launch a new Chromebook and a smaller version of the Google Home. It would not surprise me to hear about a few other devices as well.
