The Google Pixel 2 & Pixel XL 2 are unofficially confirmed to launch on October 4th as the successors to first-gen Pixel smartphones. While both the devices have been in the rumor mills at least for a couple of months, we still haven’t got much information about the first-ever LG-made Pixel smartphone. Today, we can confirm the name of the LG-made Pixel smartphone to be the Google Pixel 2 XL. We also got the details regarding its pricing, storage, and color options. Even the Google Home Mini & Google Pixelbook are leaked alongside the second-gen Pixel smartphones.
Talking about the Pixel 2 XL, it will be launched in two colors namely, Black & White & Just Black. The Black & White color variant of the Pixel 2 XL comes with an orange colored power button. While the recently launched iPhones came in 64GB and 256GB storage variants, the upcoming PIxel smartphones will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage options. The 64GB variant of the Pixel 2 XL will be launched at $849 (approx Rs. 54,500), whereas the 128GB variant will cost $949 (approx Rs. 61,000). In the U.S, Google will also offer financing for the Pixel 2 smartphones.
The Pixel 2 XL with 64GB storage will cost $35.38 per month for the next 24 months and the 128GB storage variant for $39.54 per month for 24 months. As seen on the LG V30, the Pixel 2 XL will also sport FullVision Display with thinner bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio. With the curved glass on top, the accidental touches can be avoided as the display is still flat. Soon, the Pixel users will be able to change the “Ok Google” to a custom hot word to activating Google Assistant. On the right edge of the device are the volume rocker and power button.
Unlike the last year’s Pixel devices, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will come with a shorter length glass back panel which now only features the rear camera setup. As the fingerprint sensor sits on the metal body, there will be no more smudges on the glass panel. Since the official launch day is just two weeks away, we expect to see more leaks in the coming days. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about the upcoming Pixel smartphones.
