Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL was launched October 4, 2017. It is expected to be released on October 19, 2017. Now you can preorder at Google store at $649 or $24.04 per month for 24 months. If converted to Naira gives approximately N240,000. A smartphone carrier Version has also been confirmed to making PR orders sales too.
But Google is really killing the Pixel 2 XL, I don’t mean, the phone will die. As we used to saying it here in Nigeria, I mean to say, the Google Pixel 2 XL is hot than I imagine. With the Ear bug and Google clips along with the Pixel 2 XL, you got every thing you need to make life beautiful. There is also a do not disturb (DnD) app that will not allow incoming calls when you’re driving on the smartphone.
I will refer to Pixel 2 XL as Google flagship instead of Pixel 2 because, it display is better. A pOLED display for Pixel 2 XL is better than the AMOLED display for Pixel 2.
