The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones were launched with the Android Oreo OS out of the box. While the other Android smartphones are eagerly awaiting the rollout of timely updates, the Google Pixel smartphones will usually get them first without any delay as these are different from the rest. While this itself is a key highlight of the Pixel 2 smartphones, the Google Store listing has revealed another interesting information.
According to the listing, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones will get three years of OS support and security updates. This is noteworthy as three years of update support means that these phones will get another year of Android update support in comparison to the original Pixel smartphones those were launched last year.
Well, the current timeline for the original Pixel and Pixel XL is Android version updates for a minimum of two years from the time when the device was available on the Google Store. After the period of two years, Google will not be able to guarantee further updates. Eventually, three years of OS support with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be a bonus for the users.
This move from Google makes it clear that the company wants to lure buyers who have the Pixel 2 smartphone as an option with this special treatment. Having said that, the rest remains assured as you can get three years of complete support.
