Google’s Pixel 2 pops up at the FCC with Active Edge and Android 8.0.1

With Android O allegedly being officially announced on August 21, another much-anticipated Google product has taken another step in its march towards its eventual launch; the smaller Pixel 2 (Walleye) has made its way to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As previously rumored, it does indeed appear that HTC is manufacturing the smaller of the two Pixel 2 handsets, with the Taiwanese handset maker filing most of the documents for the phone with the FCC. 

Essential confirms that the Essential Phone will start shipping in next 7 days

It’s taken a while, but after announcing that an announcement would be made this week on when its début handset would finally be ready, it seems that the Essential Phone should start shipping out to customers in the next 7 days, at least that’s according to emails that the company has sent out. After its launch on May 30 where Andy Rubin initially claimed that the Essential Phone would be ready to ship in about 30 days, there has been an unexplained delay of around a month and a half.
