Google launched the Pixel smartphones last year and np although there are new flagships in the market, the Pixel and the Pixel XL are still one of the best out there if not the only one. They pack the best from 2016 and are standing strong in the market against the competition. And if you are one of the proud owners of a Pixel smartphone, then there yet another good news for you. The company says that the Pixel smartphones from 2016 will continue to receive new updates at least until October 2019.
Yes, you read that right, unlike other manufacturers who just ditch their old smartphones from updates, Google has said that they will continue to push updates to Google Pixel smartphones until 2019. Now, 2019 is indeed a long time frame, but it is good to see that the company is committed to supporting the Pixel buyers. However, there is something which you need to know here. Recently Google has updated their support page and taking a look at the page; we get to know that the Pixel smartphone will continue to receive the updates but they necessarily won’t be new versions of Android.
According to the list, the Google Pixel smartphones will continue to get the new version of Android until October 2018, however, post this; there is no guarantee that they will receive the new version of Android. So what does it means? It means the smartphones will continue to get security patches, etc. until October 2019. Now you might be wondering what is the good news here? Although the Pixel smartphones might not receive new versions of Android, at least you will be getting new security patches, etc.
If Google stays committed to this claim and continues to push the security patches, other updates, etc. until October 2019, then it means we are looking at a time frame of about three years from the date of launch which is quite good. Considering the fact most people switch the smartphone which they use within 2-3 years, this should not be an issue. Having said that, we would like to know what do you think about this. Do you think Google will stay committed to this claim? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment down below and also stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info like this.
