HTC will be making the Pixel 2 for Google

Over the past few weeks, we've heard a lot of rumors about the upcoming Google Pixel 2, revealing what the handset may bring when it launches.

Google is making the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones, and rumours related to the two flagship devices have already started doing the rounds. The latest Google Pixel device has been expected to come out with a number of new features and updates over the previous phone.

As per the FCC listing (via Reddit), Google Pixel 2 series is confirmed to be manufactured by Taiwan-based HTC, which built the first-generation Pixel models past year.

Now that details about the HTC-made Pixel have come out, expect details about the larger phone to be out soon.

For now, it is not clear when Google plans to unveil the next-gen Pixel, but maybe we will see it on display at the IFA trade show in Berlin next month.

The film is not an usual concept for Bollywood, which makes the odds of the film doing well in the box office could be a concern. The film also starring Bhumi Pednekar, Sudhir Pandey and Anupam Kher, is an unusual love story interwoven with a social message.

More hints and clues about the upcoming Google Pixel smartphones have made their way on to the web. These included the HTC U11-like Edge Sensors for Pixel 2. The HTC U11 is the only phone in the world that boasts this feature, where users can do different things by applying different pressure levels on the edges of the phone.

Past year the Pixel and Pixel XL debuted in October. Active Edge feature has been spotted in the new "Languages, input & gestures" setting. This shows that Active Edge can be used on Google Pixel 2 to activate Google Assistant by squeezing the frame of the phone.

Despite the possibilities of a Snapdragon 836, the Google Pixel 2 is expected to keep the same 4GB RAM that appeared on the original model, which is still very okay, if you ask me. If you squint in the image above, you can make out that the software version listed is Android 8.0.1, and that the security patch is from August 5th (but that'll obviously change).

Leaked photos of the handsets have pointed to the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack and an overall design similar to the first-generation Pixel.
