We are one week away from the official reveal of the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and people are itching to see Google’s newest devices live in the flesh. The iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 are out and a lot of flagship smartphone shoppers are holding off on deciding where they want to put their money. If you are one of those people then hopefully we can help you get prepared for the big Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launch next week. So let’s run down some of the details and rumors that we know!
As far as timelines go, it looks like Google is following a similar schedule to last year. The October 4th launch date is similar to what we saw for the original Google Pixel and that means we can expect a release date around October 20th much like last year as well. If you are looking to pick up a Google Pixel 2 then the Google online store will be the place to go for most people. Verizon is going to be the exclusive carrier retailer for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the United States which, again, is similar to how the release went last year.
