Next, Google essentially confirms that these questions are valid points. The clip ends with "Funny you should ask".

We all know that Google has partnered with HTC to manufacture the Pixel and Pixel XL. The Taimen is the bigger phone, while the Walleye is the smaller one.

Beyond all of that, Google itself is even hinting at what to expect.

Google's confirmation comes just two days after Apple announced the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. The company is also ramping up its PR campaign, as Droid-life confirms that there are already huge billboards going up in the USA with statements like "ask more of your phone". But given the timing, Droid Life believes it is most likely the Pixel 2 launch event date. The Pixel 2's G011 code name carries a continuation of last year's Pixel codename.

The locations that Google is sending Pixel XL as replacements are yet to be verified but reports indicate that consumers in the USA and Canada are only getting the Pixel smartphone. A standard model starting at $650 with a larger model around $750 would actually feel like a relief now that we've been bombarded with the $930 Galaxy Note 8 and the $999 iPhone X. Remember your motto, Google: "Don't be Evil".
