Google Pixel 2 XL receives FCC certification; launch on October 4

The "ZNF" is the FCC grantee code of LG and "G011C" is the model number of Pixel 2 XL. As both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have passed through FCC certification, their launch seems imminent. As per the latest information, we have obtained, the Google flagships will be unveiled on October 4.

If you wondering about the specs, the FCC documentation has not revealed anything. From existing rumors we know, the Pixel 2 XL is likely to come with a 5.99-inch QHD OLED display.

Initially, it was speculated that the smartphone would feature a Snapdragon 836 SoC, but the information turned out to be false. So it is safe to say the device would be powered by the current flagship processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835.

On the software front, the Google Pixel 2 XL will arrive pre-installed with Android Oreo. At this moment, only Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Sony Xperia XZ1 and Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact have Android Oreo on board.

Some of the other features we expect on the Pixel 2 XL include Google Lens apps, Always-On Display, squeezable frame and dual front facing speakers. Following the current trend, the smartphone will probably ditch the 3.5mm audio jack.

Google Pixel 2 XL's RAM, internal storage space, battery size etc are still not known. Optics wise, it may come with a dual camera setup at the back.
