Google – the search giant – is planning to announce complete details on its next Pixel smartphones dubbed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL quite soon – on October 4th at a Google event. It is only natural that popular tech sites like Droid Life and Android Police have started predicting specs on the upcoming smartphones.
Google offering monthly financing for Pixel 2 XL
News site Droid Life has recently published some pictures of the large smartphone, which is made by LG. At launch, the smartphone – Pixel 2 XL – will come in two color options – one is the black version that is almost a reflection of the original Google Pixel, and the other color option is a new white or black combo that has a black rear glass pane.
For the Pixel 2 XL, it is undoubtedly a unique look. On the white model of the phone, the power button is colored orange. According to the tech site, the Pixel 2 XL will start at $849 for 64GB of storage and people who want more storage – 128GB – the cost will be $949. The price of the Google Pixel 2 XL 128 GB storage will put right in the $1,000 line after inclusion of sales tax. The ads giant will provide a monthly financing as it did with the original Pixel to assist in spreading that investment out over 24 months.
The monthly financing offer for the 128GB version Pixel 2 XL will be $39.54 each month while the 64GB Pixel 2 XL version will be $35.38 each month. The upcoming smartphone is expected to feature a larger 6-inch OLED screen, according to news site Android Police.
Other features of the Google Pixel XL
The larger 6-inch OLED screen of the Pixel 2 XL is similar to V30 of LG. In addition to this, the said smartphone is expected to feature Snapdragon 835 processor of Qualcomm. Also, the Google Pixel 2 XL is expected to gain “new squeeze gestures similar to the HTC U11”, according to reports of news site The Verge.
HTC will be taking up the work of manufacturing the smaller Pixel 2, however both the smartphones are rumored to have the gestures. The upcoming smaller Pixel 2 will have the overall appearance like you saw in the original Google phone. Also, it appears unlikely that the search giant will make Google Lens a big focus of these devices to assist in differentiating them from an amazing lineup of 2017 flagship competition. Since disclosing the smartphone at I/O earlier this year, the ads giant has stayed quite silent about the matter.
