It seems insanely early to be talking about new Google phones, with the Pixel and Pixel XL having only gone on sale in October, but if there are rumours we will report them. It's important to point out that all the rumours in this article come via a single source of 9 to 5Google's editor Stephen Hall. We're not doubting the source's credibility, but pointing out the fact we have no other source to back up any of the information. Plus, at this stage in the proceedings, plans have a tendency to change - Google is reportedly only at the hardware testing of prototypes stage after all. Nevertheless, here's what we know about the next Google phone, the Google Pixel 2.

Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's head of Android, told Bloomberg last October that while the company wasn't closing the door completely on Nexus it didn't currently have plans for any Nexus devices. Based on this alone we would suggest the next Google phone is a Pixel rather than a Nexus.
It's too early to know who will be making the Google Pixel 2, since we doubt Google has even made a final decision on that just yet. In the past we've seen Google phones manufactured by LG, HTC, Huawei, Samsung and Motorola. The maker of the new Google phone could be any of these partners, but equally it could be a brand-new hardware partner. We'll update this article when we know more.
We now know that Google I/O will be held 17-19 May 2017, during which time it will more than likely unveil a developer preview of its forthcoming Android operating system, Android O. This is important because the company has always used its annual phone releases as the launch vehicles for the final version of its latest operating system.

Allowing for a good few months of Android O betas prior to the final release, Google phones are traditionally unveiled in late-September/early-October. The current Pixel and Pixel XL were announced at a special event on 5 October 2016, and went on sale on 20 October. We'd expect a similar time frame for the Google Pixel 2.Read More...
