Until now that is. However, a billboard ad by Google, spotted in Boston, has a date 4 October.

Google is reportedly collaborating with two phone makers on the Pixel 2 smartphones, with the smaller device supposedly being produced by HTC, whereas the larger Pixel XL 2 is understood to be handled by LG Electronics.

The internet giant behind Android software for powering mobile devices also launched a madebygoogle.com web page that featured a playful animation that asked "Thinking about changing phones?" and then suggested waiting until 4 October.

The website and video come after a recently spotted billboard in Boston read "Ask more of your phone", with the October 4 date and Google's multi-colored "G" logo.

Blass had also claimed that the Pixel 2 would be the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm's unannounced Snapdragon 836 platform, but the FCC filing appeared to confirm it would feature the same SoC used in virtually every high-end handset: the Snapdragon 835. A smartphone with the ZNFG011C code name was found in FCC's listing, which was different from last year's Pixel XL codename.

Google's second-generation Pixel phones will be launching to stiff competition this year from Apple's new iPhone X and iPhone 8, Samsung's Galaxy S8, and LG's V30 to name a few. The Mountain View company has started teasing the next batch of Pixel phones on social media giving out subtle hints about what could be their headlining features.

So, what exactly can we expect to see from the new Pixel series?

For now, we'll have to wait until October 4 to find out what Google means with all its questions.

Though Pixel is technically a "Phone by Google", it's made by HTC. But since the introduction of the Pixel, the company has taken 100% control of the design and branding of its phones, and is simply using phone makers ass contract manufacturers.

Both the smartphone are expected to come with HTC proprietary Edge Sense technology which allows users to convey the command to their phone by squeezing the side frame of the phone by the hand.
