Google teases a likely October 4 Pixel event
Google, mirroring last year's October 4 Pixel announcement, is likely teasing a new phone for the same date this year

MANILA, Philippines – Google appears to be teasing the announcement of a new Pixel phone on October 4, according to a new billboard and video from the tech giant.

A report from Droid-Life on Thursday, September 14, pointed to a Boston billboard that reads, “Ask more of your phone,” along with the Google “G” logo and an October 4 date.

A new site and video also appeared on Thursday confirming that an October 4 event was planned.

Most notably, Google announced the Pixel on October 4, 2016, and with the billboard pointing to a new phone announcement on October 4, the likelihood of a Google Pixel 2 coming is very high. 

Last year’s event also featured updates on Google’s VR initiatives, such as the Daydream VR headset.
