Google Pixel 2 XL price, specifications, features, comparison

The Pixel 2 XL will hit the shelves beginning November 15. It comes in Kinda Blue, Just Black and Clearly White colors.

The 64GB Pixel 2 will burn a Rs 61000-sized hole in your pocket, while it's 128GB model goes for a bigger Rs 70000 price tag.

Google's new Pixel 2 XL has been beset by a host of problems since release, ranging from possible issues of screen burn in to a weird clicking noise to failing a quality control test to shipping with empty packaging for a non-existent pair of wired Pixel Buds.

The company also extended the manufacturer's warranty for both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to two years, which should cover the majority of owners for the time they own the handset. But the Android Auto Crashing issue is seen only in Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices. Powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, it packs 4GB RAM. The front camera is 8MP with f/2.4 aperture. The phone comes with a 6.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2880 pixels at a PPI of 538 pixels per inch.


The recently launched, Google Pixel 2 is one of the most awaited smartphones in India. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Both the smartphones get a 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 coating and the display is "Always-on" display.

As for this little incident, let us hope that Google puts more work in ensuring that its Pixel 2 XL comes running an OS before it ships out to the owner. The devices come with IP67-certification, which makes the phones water and dust resistant.

Upon booting up a brand new Pixel 2 received in the mail, a dismayed Reddit user says the phone arrived with no operating system installed.
