The launch date for both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is October 4. But a new report suggests that the smartphones will have different release days.
The Pixel 2 will release on October 19, and the Pixel 2 Xl, on November 15. Therefore, for the bigger phone, we have to wait for almost a month! The report came from VentureBeat, referring to a person close to the release plans of Google.
Apple users are going through a similar experience. The gaps are a month-and-a-half between the release of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
On the other hand, LG and Samsung have made it a routine to launch flagships during the first 6 months of the year. Whereas, their high-end phablets launch in the later months.
How worthy is the Pixel 2 XL wait?
As per the extensive rumors, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have more differences, majorly in terms of appearance. Both the phones run on Android Oreo and are likely to have a 12mp camera.
They have a minimum 4GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage. According to a few leaks, the smartphones are waterproof and have front-firing stereo speakers.
The XL model sports a taller display and nearly bezel-less screens like the same of iPhone X. This leads the phone to have 18:9 aspect ratio as well.
Additionally, the XL is having a slightly better battery life as compared to that of Pixel 2. The two color variants are of ‘just black’, and black and white.
Lastly, there are still speculations regarding the difference between the price tags of the two phones. This further makes the coming Google Pixel event interesting.
