The smartphones will be launched on October 5.

    Google has recently announced it's latest version of Android - Oreo, but the company might not settle down for a while until it announces a couple of more products, which are in the pipeline. Yes, you all know it, they are none other than the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

    So far, we already know the almost-true-specs of the two devices but sadly, two important aspects were missing - the processor and the launch date.

    Now a serial leakster - @evleaks has cleared these secrets for all of us. According to the tweet by Evan Blass, the owner of the @evleaks handle, both Pixel 2 models will use the Snapdragon 836, and they'll be unveiled on October 5th.

    Prior to this information about the processor, the Pixel 2 had appeared on FCC database, which had recorded "8998" in the baseband, which would only mean that the device would be powered either by Snapdragon 835 or the higher one (Snapdragon 836). Thankfully, now Android aficionados can rest their confusion and doubts and just wait for October 5th for the official launch.

    Talking about the specs part of the two devices, taking previous leaks and rumors into account, the Pixel 2 will have 4GB of RAM, dual front-facing speakers, an always-on display. A 4.97 inch 1080p display will be present on the smaller model, and a 5.99 inch 1440p panel will be on the XL. Both will definately run the company's latest Android Oreo, which has several added features and functionalities.

    Unfortunately, RAM, battery capacity and other aspects of the specs have not been confirmed and will have to wait for the big day to figure that out. But surely, more leaks could probably make these things clear as the launch day is still more than a month away.
