Google Pixel 2 XL launched in India

The South Korean firm have lend Google their services since the start of the smartphone era but the recent bootloop issues and the current display failures on the Pixel 2 have got many speculating that the relationship between the two company has fallen apart. As mentioned above, the handset is being offered in two variants of 64GB and 128GB.

Pixel 2 XL also includes Google Lens that uses machine learning (ML) capabilities to recognise places, objects and streets, etc, from the clicked images to give more information about them. At this moment on Flipkart, however, only the Just Black colour option is available while the Black and White variants are now out of stock. With the new release, both Pixel 2 devices are now available in India. Flipkart's trying to make things a bit easier on your wallet by offering an exchange deal worth up to Rs 20000 and Rs 8000 as cashback on EMI transactions using an HDFC Bank credit card. Axis Bank Buzz credit card holders will also get an additional five percent discount on the phones.

Apart from unlocking the device in a snap, the fingerprint sensor on Pixel 2 XL can also be used to access the notification panel with a swipe down.

The Pixel 2 features a 5-inch Cinematic 127-mm full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, while the Pixel 2 XL features a 6-inch QHD+ (2880 x 1440) P-OLED at 538ppi with 18:9 ratio. There's also a layer of curved glass of Gorilla Glass 5 on top of its screen.

As for the processor, the Google has employed a 2.35Ghz + 1.9Ghz, 64Bit octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor by Qualcomm.

A large number of early Pixel 2 buyers filed their complaints at Google and it resulted in the tech giant rushing to find a fix.

The same user also made a video comparing a new-gen Pixel with the Pixel from past year, and the issue clearly seems to be with the Pixel 2. The Pixel 2 XL's front camera is 8MP with f/2.4 aperture and this too supports a portrait mode. On the software front, the Google Pixel 2 XL runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system right out of the box.
