Google discontinues its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were released back in October 2017 and they were the search giant’s flagship offerings to the smartphone market. And now, 2 years after their launch and months after their successors got unveiled, Google has stopped selling its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the US markets.

On Google’s official product website, you will only find Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL being sold along with the Pixel Stand, Pixel Cases, Google Pixel Buds, and other accessories. The only place where the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL are mentioned is the ‘Find the right Pixel for you’ section. This is the section where the Pixel, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 3 are compared with each other. But there is no ‘Buy Now’ button besides the Google Pixel 2 devices.

On its official products website, Google is asking the users to buy the Pixel 3 series instead of the Pixel 2 series of smartphones. The news was first spotted by Android Police, and before its discontinuation, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were sold with discounts and offers during festivals and sales. And now, the company has completely stopped the sale of the Pixel 2 devices. However, it should be noted that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL software support will last another year.

After discontinuation from its products website, Google has removed the Pixel 2 series listing from its India website as well. On the India website, only the Pixel 3 and its other accessories are seen in the phone section. We should add here that on Flipkart, the Google Pixel 2 with 4GB RAM Just Black variant is still being sold. All the other variants of the device are listed ‘out of stock’ on Flipkart.

Earlier, we saw that the search giant might be planning to launch its Pixel 3a and the Pixel 3a XL which will be a watered down and affordable version of the Google’s Pixel 3 flagship smartphones. The Pixel 3a will reportedly sport a 5.6-inch display and will be powered by Snapdragon 670 SoC while the Pixel 3a XL may feature a 6-inch display and will be reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC. Both the devices might come with 4GB of RAM and 18W fast charging support with USB Type-C port. Some reports suggest that the smartphone will be unveiled at Google I/O 2019, however, Google has not confirmed this yet.
