The reports about Google’s new smartphones won’t stop coming in even though the company is barely two days away from officially unveiling the handsets. A new report today claims that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL release dates will be staggered. The former will be out later this month while the latter will be released in November.
In a new report detailing Google’s upcoming flagship handsets, VentureBeat claims that the Google Pixel 2 will be released on October 19th whereas the Google Pixel 2 XL will be out on November 15th. Both handsets will be preceded by pre-order periods.
The Google Pixel 2 reportedly features a 5 inch full HD display with 16:9 aspect ratio. The Pixel 2 XL is said to feature a QHD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. While the handset will have slim bezels, maybe don’t keep your fingers crossed for the “bezel-less” look that many flagships are shooting for nowadays.
Both handsets are said to feature 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. 12 megapixel rear cameras and dual front-facing speakers are also said to be onboard. The handsets will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, the very same chip that’s found in most flagships launched this year.
According to the report, the Pixel 2 is going to be priced at $649 while the Google Pixel 2 Xl will cost $849. They will be released on October 19th and November 15th, respectively.
