Since Google just informed the press about an upcoming event on October 4, we are pretty sure that's where the new Pixel phones will be unveiled for the first time. This belief was further confirmed by the fact that there's a new "Oct. 4" video on Google's official YouTube channel where the Google search bar slowly transforms into the shape of a smartphone.
As far as leaks go, the latest Geekbench spec sheets are revealing a revised Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and Android Nougat 7.1, a version of the OS that no other smartphone is running at the moment. Both the Pixel (5.2-inch) and the Pixel XL (5.5-inch) will be made by HTC this year and there will be two versions this time around; one for the US and the other for the international market.
We have also seen a few mobile case listings for the Pixel phones and as you can see from the image, the camera cut-outs are suspiciously large and may indicate a dual camera setup at the back. However, no such rumor regarding the Pixel or Pixel XL has surfaced so far. We will find out more very soon as the official unveiling date is now confirmed and just around the corner.
