  Google Pixel 2 leak reveals HTC U 11 style squeeze functions The Google Pixel 2 is expected to make an appearance at a launch event on 4 October. According to tweets from Artem Russakovskii, founder of the reliable Android Police, we can expect a few new additions to the hardware and software on the Pixel 2.

BlackBerry's decision to embrace Android may not restore the brand to its former glory, but it's been a promising start. We were impressed with its latest phone, the KeyOne, which catered to classicists with its hardware keyboard. But, its followup, will onceagain ditch the brand's defining physical characteristic -- at least, if a new leaked render is anything to go by. The image, tweeted by Evan Blass, gives us our first look at the front of the touchscreen handset.

Okay, so the rumour mill already let slip that the device would pack virtual keys. And, TCL (BlackBerry's partner on its handsets) told us it would be water-resistant. But, aside from offering up a proper look at its design -- which we'll touch on later -- Blass also dropped what may be its official title. The handset everyone was referring to as the "Krypton" is reportedly dubbed BlackBerry Motion. We can't say that the name change comes as much of a surprise, seeing as the KeyOne also had a different title (Mercury) during its prototype stage.

Google is reportedly prepping a high-end Home 'Max'

  Google is reportedly prepping a high-end Home 'Max' Google Home users looking for a higher-end audio experience may just have their wish. This isn't the first leak ahead of Google's upcoming October 4th event. There have been plenty of reports and rumors about the company's new Pixel smartphones, updated Daydream View VR headset and another speaker variant, the Google Home Mini.

In terms of its look, the BlackBerry Motion doesn't fall in line with the current bezel-free trend. It also contains a home button with an embedded BlackBerry logo. And, there's a 3.5mm headphone jack. So, in many ways it is a classic device -- albeit not in the traditional Blackberry mould. Still, that doesn't mean the company is doing away with its other defining features. The Motion will carry the robust security software that BlackBerry prides itself on, and apparently boasts a mammoth 26-hour battery life. Details on its full list of specs, however, are still scarce.

The handset is rumored to arrive this month. Although, if past examples like the BlackBerry KeyOne Black edition are any indication, TCL could be releasing the Motion in some markets first before bringing it worldwide.

This new image backs up what Blass has written about the Pro model over on VentureBeat. It will have an edge-to-edge display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and will come with a three cameras: a 12- and 20-megapixel duel-camera setup on the back, along with a single, 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
