Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2 Leaked: What Else Will Google Unveil On Oct. 4?
A massive leak has revealed images and prices of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, along with information on other devices that Google plans to unveil at its upcoming Oct. 4 event.
In addition to the upgraded Pixel smartphones, Google will also be announcing a new laptop, an Amazon Echo Dot challenger, and an updated Daydream View virtual reality headset.
Google Pixel 2
Apple recently unveiled the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, joining the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG V30 in the crowded smartphone market. Google will be the last one to unveil its upgraded smartphone models this year, and Droid Life has acquired images of the device.
According to Droid Life, the Pixel 2 will come in three color options, namely Kinda Blue, Clearly White, and Just Black. The smartphone will be priced at $649 for the 64 GB option and $749 for the 128 GB option.
Google Pixel XL 2
The Google Pixel XL 2, as with its predecessor, is the larger version of Google's flagship smartphones. It will feature two color options, namely Black & White and Just Black, and will carry a price tag of $849 for the 64 GB version and $949 for the 128 GB option.
That $949 price comes very close to the now infamous $999 price tag of the iPhone X. Google will need to provide a good explanation for that price point in its upcoming event.
The laptop will only be sold in silver, but will have storage capacity options of 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB, with starting prices of $1,199, $1,399, and $1,749, respectively.
The Pixelbook has the ability to fold into a tablet, which is something that the Chromebook Pixel was not able to do. There will also be an official Pixelbook Pen, which will be sold for $99.
Google Home Mini
According to Droid Life, the Google Home Mini will only cost $49, and will be available in Chalk, Charcoal, and Coral colors. The smart speakers, like their bigger version, will be powered by Google Assistant.
Google Daydream View
Lastly, Droid Life also showcased new Daydream View virtual reality headsets, which will come in Charcoal, Coral, and Fog colors.
From the images, the headsets look harder and more durable, with an overall cleaner design. The new version, however, will cost $99, which is $20 more than the previous version. Any upgrades that bumped up the price will be known on Oct. 4.
