Google will release its latest phone in October.

A blogger with an accurate record, Evan Blass, said this week that Google will unveil its new smartphone on October 5, however that date could change.

The Google Pixel 2 is expected to succeed the original Pixel and will be among the first new smartphones that will run Google’s new Android Oreo operating system, which was officially launched this week, according to a report by CNBC on Sunday.

Pixel 2 will reportedly operate on Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 836 processor, which would make it among the most powerful smartphones on the market.

The device is expected to look like last year’s model instead of packing an edge-to-edge screen, which has become a trend among new smartphones.

This is probably the autumn event that other rumors have referenced, which means Google may also take time to unveil its new Chromebook laptop, a smaller Google Home and a set of headphones that may compete with Apple’s AirPods.

The original Pixel phone is available in the Iranian market with prices ranging 36 million rials ($960) from a website called 33Pol based in Isfahan.

The brand does not have official representation in Iran and all phones sold are brought in through the grey market.
