Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 event livestream

The Google Pixel 2 event livestream link is already available, despite us still having time ahead of the October 4th date.

So if you needed an early reminder, here you have it: mark October 4th, 9:00 am PT | 12:00pm ET for the Google Pixel 2 launch.

That's exactly when Google plans to kick off the livestream for the announcement.

What do we expect to see?

Of course, two new phones by Google: the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, but also a new Chromebook and a smaller version of the Google Home speaker.

The Pixel 2 series are expected to skip the bezel-less design, but instead get an evolved look with dual front speakers, a squeeze feature like the one on the HTC U11, a Snapdragon 835 system chip, enhanced battery life and an improved camera system (but no dual camera trickery). Also, expect their price to be slightly higher than that of last year's models.

I'm a wee bit more interested in regards to ChromeOS and what they will do with it in the future. I am enjoying it so far.

Excited but will we be able to actually get one? Google needs to make a ton and hopefully better able to meet demand.

Well 5.3" & 5.7" at a lightsaber screen ratio - 2:1 - is nothing to write home about either.

I am so excited for the Pixel 2 (Smaller model), Flagship specs, unadulterated OS, in a compact package. Though I may pass on the Pixel 2 if I am successful in exchanging my Nexus 6P for a first gen Pixel. I've seen enough videos to convince myself that the phone is badass enough, performance wise, to hold its own against the Galaxy S8 and other 2017 flagships so I'd be content with it. Regardless, I have my calendar marked!

If they really skip the bezel-less design along with removing a headphone jack. I will be pretty disappointed honestly.

I'm not a fan of this new aspect ratio .Makes the phones feel like TV Remotes, Tall and skinny. I have a Pixel XL, and love it, bezels and all. I will probably move to the smaller pixel 2, because of screen ratio. I want to be able to watch movies and things on full screen, not with black bars on the side. (Talk about regression on video watching, black bars again...)

You know if you have bezels you have permanent black bars...
