Google announced the launch date of the Pixel 2 and Pixel II XL today, and it’s a bit of a bombshell.
The Pixel 2’s Pixel 2 X and Pixel 3 XL’s Pixel XL will hit shelves on September 9th, the Pixel phones’ first day of availability, with both the Pixel and Pixel phones going on sale the same day.
The other new phones, meanwhile, are the Pixel XL and the Pixel Max.
Both phones have a 6.3-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution and a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution.
They also feature a Snapdragon 835 chipset with 64-bit octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM.
Both of these devices will launch in the US on September 12th.
The Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL are also getting a big upgrade in terms of hardware design, and they will both come in a bigger, black, metallic finish.
The Pixel 2 is going to sport a 13-inch 1080p screen, while the Pixel 3 will sport a 16.3MP 5K display.
Both of these phones are coming with a $349.99 price tag, which is actually down from the Pixel 1 and Pixel 1 XL’s $399.99 prices.
They’re also going on par with the iPhone XS Max and iPhone X in terms toggles.
Both devices are also going to ship with Android Marshmallow, so that means you can download the latest version of Android on both devices, even if you don’t own an Android phone.
Both the Pixel X and the Google Pixel X will be available in Black, Metallic and Gold finishes, but the Pixel Plus and Pixel Plus XL will also be available with a Metallic finish.
Both are expected to ship out in October, though Google isn’t saying when exactly they’ll be available.
