The Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL are the best Android smartphones available in India, especially if you are looking for a camera-centric smartphone with stock Android OS. And now, the Google Pixel 2 XL has received a permanent price cut in India, which makes the Google Pixel 2 XL even sweeter. Do note that the Google Pixel series of smartphones is the product of Google, which will be the first set of devices to receive the latest software update from Google.
The Google Pixel 2 XL with 64 internal storage was launched in India for Rs 73,000, and now the price has been dropped down to Rs 45,499, which is almost 40% price cut compared to the launch price. Do note there is no price reduction for the Google Pixel 2 XL with 128 GB internal storage.
So, if you are looking for a high-end Android smartphone and the camera is your main priority, then the Google Pixel 2 XL is the smartphone that you should consider. Do note that the company is launching the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL in next few weeks, which is expected to come with an improved camera setup (still a single camera) compared to the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL. So, if you need the latest Android smartphone, then it makes sense to wait for the launch of the Pixel 3, as the Pixel 3 will be powered by the next generation Qualcomm Snapdragon, flagship processor.
