Top 5 flagship phones coming to India this year

5. Pixel 2 XL

The Pixel 2 XL is the larger version of Google’s flagship smartphone, the Google Pixel 2, and the direct sequel to last year’s 5.5-inch Google Pixel XL

Pixel 2 XL features a vibrant 6-inch P-OLED display with 2,880 x 1,440p resolution, a spec that lends brilliantly to virtual reality games applications enjoyed via the Google Daydream View headset. 

The Pixel 2 XL has joined the bezel-light party alongside the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and LG G6, though it’s not nearly as borderless as the iPhone X or Essential Phone. Also, its 18:9 aspect ratio is another new introduction that has been followed by OEMs this year. 

It has a totally revamped look with a two tone metal and glass build with IP67 certification to make it dust and water resistant. The 3.5mm headphone jack is now dead, and there's HTC's new squeeze feature on both the Pixel phones this time. It will be available in “Just Black”, a melding of black aluminum with charcoal-colored glass, or “Black & White”.

The Google Pixel 2 XL features the Snapdragon 835 with 4GB RAM and Android O. There is a 3,520mAh battery powering the Pixel 2 XL.

The rear-facing camera, which is nearly the same size as the fingerprint reader, contains a 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture. On the front, there's an 8MP camera that is said to be a major overhaul over last year's camera. 

The Pixel 2 XL price starts at Rs 73,000 for 64GB and the 128GB model is priced at Rs 82,000. 

Pre-orders commence on 26th October 2017, and Pixel 2 will be available for sales in over 1000+ stores across the country  and online starting November 1st and Pixel 2 XL will be available for sales in 1000+ stores and online starting November 15th 2017. You must note that you won’t be able to purchase either of these devices through the Google Store in India, as Flipkart will be an exclusive retailer for India.
