While there is no confirmation on the launch dates of the Pixel 2 smartphone (s), it won't be hard to assume that they could see the light of the day in or around October. According to a recent FCC filing, the Pixel 2 will be made once again by HTC and could sport the HTC U11's "squeeze" feature. The FCC documents contain various references for HTC.

Furthermore, Google has even borrowed HTC U11's main attribute - the "Edge Sense" squeezable frame technology - for its Pixel 2 series, and is calling it "Active Edge".

As per the latest reports, Google Pixel 2 series, like its predecessors, is coming in two variants. However, these will most likely be called "Active Edge" in the next-generation Google device. However, this interesting feature might become mainstream pretty soon, since the next Google Pixel handset seems to have it as well.

Another screenshot reveals the "Languages, inputs and gestures" setting within which is a new "Active Edge" feature.

Some screenshots of the Google Pixel 2 that have surfaced through FCC filing has revealed that it would be arriving preinstalled with Android 8.0.1 Google is yet to officially debut the Android 8.0 operating system. Google Pixel 2 is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor coupled with 64GB ROM. Google Pixel 2, which has reportedly been codenamed "walleye", was previously revealed in an image by Blass on Twitter.

On the back, it is expected flaunt a dual-tone glass and metal finish similar to the 2016-series models. While, LG is rumoured to manufacture Pixel XL's successor, the maker of the smaller variant remained unknown until the filing appeared. It is worth adding here that this is one storage tier that is missing from the Pixel and the Pixel XL. We'll have to wait for an official announcement to know more about the upcoming Google Pixel devices.
