A blogger with an accurate record, Evan Blass, said this week that Google will unveil its new smartphone on Oct. 5.

The Google Pixel 2 is expected to succeed the original Pixel and will be among the first new smartphones that will run Google's new Android Oreo operating system, which was officially launched this week.

The Pixel 2 will reportedly operate on Qualcomm's brand new Snapdragon 836 processor, which would make it among the most powerful smartphones on the market. The device is expected to look like last year's model instead of packing an edge-to-edge screen, which has become a trend among new smartphones.

This is probably the fall event that other rumors have referenced, which means Google may also take time to unveil its new Chromebook laptop, a smaller Google Home and a set of headphones that may compete with Apple's AirPods.

While Blass has an accurate track record, it's common for these events to shift to another date at the last minute. CNBC reached out to Google for comment but a spokesperson was not immediately available.
