Best Buy leaks the Google Pixel 2/XL, preorders coming with a free Home Mini

After Walmart, it's Best Buy Canada's turn to spill the beans on the pre-order promos that the upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagships may come with. It looks like Google is throwing in the new Home Mini smart speaker for free with the purchase of the phones. 

Given that the Amazon Dot Echo rival is said to cost $49 in the US (in Canada it's apparently going for CAD 80), it's a decent enough deal for those who want to be Google-ed up and ready for the zombie apocalypse. 

Best Buy's Canadian circular includes pictures of the new Pixels in the flesh, too, confirming all the leaks and official renders we have seen so far, so there is a great chance that what you see in the snaps here is exactly what Google will unveil later today.

Sigh.............I truly have no reason to upgrade to the OG XL still works like the first time I turned it on. This is the first time I can say that regarding a phone I've used. I just don't think I can resist though. The looks of the XL2 have grown on me and depending on what they announce today as far as features.....I may just go ahead and purchase it.
