SINGAPORE: Hot on the heels of the iPhone X launch, Google has released a video on Thursday (Sep 14) hinting at an Oct 4 launch for its next generation of Pixel smartphones.
In the teaser video titled "Funny you should ask...", the company poses a series of rhetorical questions like "why is my phone always out of storage?" and "why can't my phone update itself?"- presumably doubts it hopes to clear with the new release.
Some other improvements it hinted at with its questions were a longer battery life, faster processor and better camera. No other details were made public.
If the phone materialises, it will be exactly a year since Google first launched its in-house designed Pixel phone.
The event marked a shift in strategy for the company, which launched a slate of Internet-linked devices that came with Google Assistant artificial intelligence.
