Google sent out invitations to an October 4 event, hinting that it will unveil a new smartphone powered by its Android mobile software.
Google fired off a Twitter message with hashtag #madebygoogle and a video of what appeared to be a long rectangular search term box morphing into a silhouette of a smartphone.
Android news and rumour site Android Police earlier reported the Pixel will sport a 5-inch screen while the Pixel XL’s screen will be 5.5 inches.
It also reported that both phones will be built by HTC. Google’s current mid-range phone the Nexus 5X is manufactured by LG, while its larger phone the Nexus 6P is manufactured by Huawei.
