Google to announce its next smartphone on October 4th

Google has announced that it will be holding an event on October 4th in San Francisco, where it will likely unveil its latest smartphones (which may or may not be released under the Nexus brand).

A report from Android Police says we'll be seeing two new smartphones built by HTC — a 5-inch and 5.5-inch model rumored to be called the Pixel X and Pixel XL — and they may even feature an all-metal design. Last year the Nexus 6P was metal, but the 5.2-inch LG 5X was plastic. A report from Android Central corroborates the dropping of the Nexus branding, and says that Google will ship the devices with a special version of Android Nougat, instead of going with a stock version of the operating system like usual.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the company would be "more opinionated about the design of the phones," and noted that it would "add more features on top of Android on Nexus phones," which gives added credence to the report.

The company uploaded a short teaser video to YouTube that shows the date, as well as a smartphone-shaped rectangle, and the Google "G" logo. It also launched a new site that refers to the date as well as something "made by" Google. Google has yet to confirm what the phones will be called, but multiple reports have it dropping the Nexus name in favor of its "G" logo on the upcoming devices.

The 30-second video clearly indicates it's a phone, with Google's familiar search box morphing into the shape of a smartphone: Google, defined by its origins as a search engine, is suggesting that search is at home on a smartphone now. The clip also hints that the company sees its upcoming phone as a hardware version of a Google search, as well as a chance to refocus on its hardware efforts. Its new teaser site states that the phones are "made by" Google — even if they're to be built by HTC.
