There has been a bit of back and forth regarding who will be the one responsible for making the Google Pixel 2 handset. Some rumors are suggesting that HTC will continue to make the phones, while some have suggested LG. However thanks to a recent filing at the FCC by HTC, it seems that HTC will be the manufacturer, and some details have also been revealed.

According to the filing, for starters it seems like the Pixel 2 will be made by HTC, however given that Google is expected to launch two Pixel 2 handsets, perhaps we could be looking at Nexus 5X/6P situation where both phones are made by different companies, but for now it looks like HTC will be making at least one of them.

Also what’s interesting is that in the filing, there is mention of a feature called “Active Edge” which has been speculated to be similar to the squeezable frame feature in the HTC U11, except in this case it seems that squeezing the phone’s edges will launch Google Assistant, which is actually not a bad idea.

Other details include how the phone will most likely pack 64GB of storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, and it also appears to be running on Android 8.0.1. We reckon it probably won’t be too long until the details of the Pixel 2 are revealed, so check back with us in the near future for more updates.
