Google Pixel 2 XL now available in India via Flipkart

Google Pixel 2 XL which was launched recently is now available in India from today.

The Pixel 2 XL comes with Active Edge feature with which you can interact with the smartphone by squeezing it. On the other hand, Croma is also giving EMI option and a exchange offer on the Google Pixel 2 XL.

There's, however, no official word on whether or not the Mountain View, California-based company is taking the problem on priority, and when a fix will be rolled out. And there's a bank cashback offer of Rs. 8,000 on EMI transactions done thorough HDFC Bank credit cards. 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. The pre-orders for both Pixel 2 and 2 XL kick-started back on October 27. However, Flipkart is only offering the Black variant of the handset. The smaller Pixel 2 went on for sale earlier this month on November 1, while the larger Pixel 2 XL is up for sale exclusively on Flipkart and offline stores. Flipkart is also offering an additional Rs.7100 off on exchange on Pixel and Pixel XL models - this means that if you own any of last year's Pixel phones - you can exchange them to get the new once.

Google has introduced several launch offers for consumers planning to buy Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Axis Bank Buzz credit card holders will get an extra five percent discount as well.

To recap on the specs, the Pixel 2 XL comes with a 6-inch P-OLED QHD screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of 1440×2880 pixels at 538ppi. Both the phones are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and come with 4GB of RAM.

For photography, it is mounted with 12.2MP rear camera with LED flash, OIS, EIS, f/1.8 aperture, Laser and Dual pixel phase detection, 4K video recording capability. The Pixel 2 XL's front camera is 8MP with f/2.4 aperture and this too supports a portrait mode. The battery is marked at 3,520mAh. On the software front, the Google Pixel 2 XL runs on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system right out of the box.
