The Google Pixel 2 is now available for pre-order in India. The Google Pixel 2 pre-order page has been launched over at Flipkart, one of India’s largest electronic commerce companies. Having said that, the Google Pixel 2’s 64GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 61,000 ($940) in India, while its 128GB model costs Rs. 82,000 ($1,265) in the country, which essentially means that the Pixel 2 is quite pricey in the country, it costs almost $300 more than in the US. It’s also worth noting that Pixel 2 landed in India in all three color variants that were originally announced in the US, Kinda Blue, Clearly White and Just Black.
Flipkart will start shipping the Google Pixel 2 on November 1, while the Pixel 2 XL variants will start shipping on November 15. Flipkart is actually offering a number of additional benefits to those of you who decide to pre-order the Pixel 2, as you can get the Sennheiser Headset (which usually costs $185 on its own) with at no extra cost, for example, while a number of other offers are included, simply follow the link / banner down below. It’s also worth noting that both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be available through offline channels in India as well, just in case you’re not big on pre-ordering devices or online shopping, and would rather wait for them to become available for purchase offline. The Google Pixel 2 is the smaller of the two Pixel 2 smartphones, it comes with considerably thicker bezels, but it’s considerably smaller than the Pixel 2 XL despite that. The Pixel 2 sports two front-firing speakers, so at least those bezels are put to good use.
The Google Pixel 2 is fueled by the Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core processor, while the phone sports a 5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display. The Pixel 2 is IP67 certified for water and dust resistance, and the phone packs in 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of non-expandable storage. A 12.2-megapixel shooter is placed on the back, and this phone’s camera is actually quite powerful. A rear-facing fingerprint scanner is also included in this package, while the Pixel 2 comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and the device is made out of metal with a hint of glass on the back.
