The FCC listings don't really tell us much, however they do confirm the fact that the Pixel XL 2 will indeed be manufactured by LG.

Over the last few months, there have been a number of Pixel 2 leaks fueling speculation around what the phone will and will not have.

The two phones by Google are codenamed Taimen and Walleye. Therefore, it makes sense for Google to provide Pixel XL replacements for Nexus 6P phones that have problems not related to software, as per Phone Arena.

According to the Verge, press invites for Google's event on october 4 have been sent out, which means the company will reveal the Pixel 2 on that day. Interestingly, Taiwanese news site Commercial Times last week reported that Google is in the final stages of acquiring HTC's smartphone business.
