After a couple of weeks of reported drama with the Google Pixel 2 XL's 6-inch OLED display -- manufactured by LG, rather than industry leaders Samsung -- in everything from viewing angles to screen burn-in, Google has said that it'll push a software update to fix things.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

The Google Pixel 2 has the best camera of any smartphone. This much we already know to be true. It also has an excellent portrait mode for blurring the background in photos, but it doesn't use two camera lenses to do that like the iPhone or Samsung Galaxy Note8. Instead, it uses some very smart software and machine learning, and the minute difference between the pixels in its camera sensor, to simulate blur that looks very nearly as good as a much larger and more expensive digital SLR.

If you're in the market for a Google Pixel 2 when it comes out on October 31, you're probably in the market for a case too. The pair go together like hand in glove and, just like gloves, there are plenty of options to wrap around your phone to keep it safe. Here are a few of the cases coming out soon for the Pixel 2.

With Apple's September event over, you'd be forgiven for thinking we were done with big phone launches this year. But it is not so. The last big hurrah for this year is Google's very-not-very-secret announcement of the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, scheduled for early tomorrow morning.
