Google: pixel 2 and pixel 2 XL are again expensive

The second generation of pixel smartphones “Made by Google”, which is expected for October 4, will again be offered at high prices. For the smaller pixel 2, the basic version is expected to cost 649 USD before tax, while the larger pixel 2 XL will cost $ 849 US $ 80 more.

The Pixel 2 XL will be more expensive

Also the variant with twice as large memory is at pixel 2 in the price on the level of the predecessor, while the pixel 2 XL synonymous here nearly 100 US dollar more expensive. This is Droid-Life .

Both smartphones should be available with either 64 or 128 GB of internal memory, compared to the predecessor, the entry model thus each have twice as much space, but on the big model, Google does not obviously change to 256 GB.

New colors

Currently there are pixels and pixels XL in the colors silver and “pretty black”, which is to change according to Droid-Life at the successor however: The larger pixel 2 XL is to give it in black as well as in black and white, the smaller however in white, black and “somehow blue”.

Presentation on 4 October officially confirmed

The fact that the new smartphones with Android 8.0 Oreo (test) will appear on October 4, Google had last confirmed through the Google search. There are also many details about the new devices to the public about unofficial paths: HTC is therefore only this year to produce the smaller, more affordable Pixel 2, while LG is the manufacturer of the larger model, Pixel 2 XL, traded. Both devices should be presented with pressure-sensitive frame in the style of the HTC U11 (Test). Only the pixel 2 XL will be reserved in all probability but an almost frameless display.

Contradictory messages are currently still available on the SoC. The Snapdragon 836 as a slightly adapted Snapdragon 835 mentioned by some sources, Qualcomm had last denied. In the first pixel and pixel XL (test) Google had however on a somewhat faster Snapdragon 820, which therefore the designation Snapdragon 821 wore. It is possible that Google planned this year, but Qualcomm did not want to go back this way.
