California - Google revealed that it will launch a smartphone on October 4. Reportedly, the company is also expected to introduce its new flagship phones.
The media event will be held in San Francisco. The smartphone launch was confirmed in a Youtube video which shows an outline of a vertical phone-shaped rectangle. The video ended with the Google's logo on the right portion of the outline without revealing the name of the phone.
For a long time, it has been rumored that the company will make its own phone device by the end of this year. Additionally, Google is also expected to disclose several hardware announcements, including new phone and 4K-capable Chromecast.
According to statement by Android Police, the phones are to be called the Pixel and Pixel XL. The cost of the smaller phone, the Pixel, might start at $649. Google's rebranding of the phone's name would address a separation from the company's Nexus moniker.
