After the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone X, this was the most awaited release of this year. These phones of Pixel series have been launched with many upgrades, some of which might be non-user friendly. I don’t know what kind of problems the smartphones companies do have with the 3.5 mm jack. Now it’s Google, which has replaced the 3.5 mm jack with USB Type-c for both charging and music.
The two smartphones; Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are not much different from each other as was in the case of Pixel and Pixel XL. Screen size and battery capacity are the prominent differences between them.

Google Pixel 2 Specifications:


Pixel 2 is packed with a 5-inch Full-HD display. The display is protected by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is one of the toughest glass in the market. 
Pixel 2 is powered by Android 8.0.0 Oreo. The Pixel 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, which is the fastest Qualcomm processor available. 
This phone is having a 4-GB RAM. There are two variants of Pixel2; 64 GB and 128 GB variants. 
 The battery capacity of Pixel 2 is of 2700mAh, which might not be a sweet bite for the Smartphones junkies.
Now on the Camera part, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both offers the best-rated smartphone camera(According to DxOMark). Pixel 2 is packed with the 12.2 megapixels rear camera with f/108 aperture and the front-facing camera of 8 megapixels with f/2.4 aperture.
Aparna Chennapragada of Google demonstrated the improvements and new features of the lens. Now you can take the pictures of posters and books and you can ask the Google assistant about that poster or book. 

Features of Google Pixel 2 XL:

Pixel 2 XL is packed with a 6-inch Full-HD display. The display is also protected by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is one of the toughest glass in the market.

 Pixel 2 XL is also powered by Android  8.0.0 Oreo. The Pixel 2 XL is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, which is the fastest Qualcomm processor available.

This phone is having a 4-GB RAM. There are two variants of Pixel2 XL also; 64 GB and 128 GB variants.

 The battery capacity of Pixel 2 is of 3520mAh, which could be the choosing factor between this phone and PIxel 2.
 

 Pixel 2 XL offers the best-rated smartphone camera(According to DxOMark score ). Pixel 2 XL is also packed with the 12.2 megapixels rear camera with f/108 aperture and the front-facing camera of 8 megapixels with f/2.4 aperture. 

Pixel 2 and Pixel2 XL price in India:

In the US, prices of Pixel 2 start at $649 (approx Rs. 42,235) , and for Pixel 2 XL $849 (approx Rs. 55,250).
Google has confirmed that Pixel 2 price in India will be Rs. 61,000 for the 64GB variant, and Rs. 70,000 for the 128GB variant. The prices of Pixel 2 XL in India for the 64GB and 128GB variants are Rs. 73,000 and Rs. 82,000, respectively. These Pixel Phones will be available from over 1,000 offline stores in the country, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL be exclusively available online on Flipkart. pre-orders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in India will start from October 26.

As you can see the differences in the price of these devices in India and in the US, this has made me quite disappointed. Why there are around 30,000 Rs, Even though India is the largest market for smartphones.

I will personally not prefer to buy any such phone which has been launched with such kind of partiality in price segment. Let’s hope for some sensible decisions in future by these smartphones companies.
