Here’s How You Can Pre-Order Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL Starting Today, at $649 & $849 for Base 64GB Variants, Respectively
Now that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are here, you're probably wondering how to get your hands on one. The smartphones aren't your conventional flagships, that's for sure. Google's the youngest flagship entrant out there, so it'll take Mountain View some time to get its footing right. More importantly, the company's always focused on software and managing supply chain partners is something Tim Cook knows too well. That being said, here's how, when and for how much you can order the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL for. Take a look!
You Can Pre-Order Google Pixel 2 And Pixel 2 XL On Verizon Starting Today
Well, we've got some good news and some bad news today. The good news is for all Verizon customers. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are Verizon exclusives (similar to original Pixels) and the carrier's customers can preorder the devices starting today. For others, there's still Google Store. Looks like Google isn't concerned with selling as many devices as possible otherwise it'd have made the Pixels available across all carriers. But, as mentioned above, managing supply chains isn't easy, especially if you're new to the game.
Of course, Google doesn't operate via contract manufacturers directly, like Apple. Rather, the company uses established manufacturers to make its devices. With the Pixel lineup introduced last year, the only thing that's changed is that the devices now directly carry Google's branding. Of course, with the close proximity between HTC and Google, you can consider both companies as one. But this post isn't about operational mechanics. It's about pre-order, pricing and availability.
- For the Pixel 2, you'll have to either pay $649.99 upfront or pay $27.08/month for 24 months. For the 128GB variant, the price goes up by $100.
- For the Pixel 2 XL, it's either $849.99 straight up or $35.41/month for 24 months. For the 128GB variant, the price once again goes up by $100.
Of course, to pre-order the device today, you're going to need the latest version of Verizon's My Verizon app and a latest plan.
- The 64GB and 128GB variants of the Pixel 2 will be available for $650 and $750, respectively. Pre-orders open tomorrow. Device will arrive on October 17th.
- The 64GB and 128GB variants of the Pixel 2 will be available for $850 and $950, respectively. Pre-orders open tomorrow. Device will arrive within 2-3 weeks.
