It seems that Google has quietly phased out the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Both the models are not present on the company’s official Google Store.
According to a report by Android Police, the company has stopped selling the older flagship models. The Google Store India website does not feature both the models and the same is reflected on the US website. The website in the US shows the Pixel 2 product page, though a single click now takes you to the Pixel 3 product page. This simply means that the company has phased out both smartphones.
The report further highlights Google discounted both the models during Valentine’s Day, hinting that it was planning to clear the remaining stock and it has no intention of restocking the old generation of smartphones. It seems that the search engine giant is planning to bring the focus to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL lineup by discounting the older smartphones. Interestingly, at the time of writing, the Pixel 2 XL is available for purchase from Amazon, while the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are available for purchase on Flipkart.
To recall, the company introduced Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in 2017. The Google Pixel 2 6GB variant will come with a price tag of Rs 61,000, while the 128GB variant will be priced at Rs 70,000. Google Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, comes with a price tag of Rs 73,000 for the 64GB variant, while the 128GB variant comes with a price tag of Rs 82,000.
Recollecting key specifications, the regular Pixel 2 comes loaded with a 5.0-inch Full HD OLED display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Google Pixel 2 XL sports a 6.0-inch QHD+ pOLED display with a screen resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels. On the hardware front, both the devices are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor along with Adreno 540 GPU. The phones are backed by a 4GB of RAM and comes in 64GB or 128GB storage variants. Further, users get unlimited online storage for photos and videos.
