Chasing rainbows: Google might be considering interesting new color options for the Pixel 2

According to David Ruddock from Android Police, Google's is considering intriguing new color options for its upcoming second generation of Pixel phones. No idea what these could be or if they are going to make it to mass production at all.

Last year's Pixel and Pixel XL arrived in Quite Black, Very Silver, and Really Blue colors, and we wouldn't rule out the possibility that El Goog will once again go for tongue-in-cheek color names. 

Purely Pink? Extra Yellow? Rad Red? Humble Violet? We can only speculate, but one thing is for sure - a little variety killed nobody, so regular customers will definitely benefit from whatever Google comes up with aside from the standard color variations.

My 2 main wishes for the Pixel 2/XL -Better supply The Pixel was back ordered ~4 months which stopped people from ordering -Better distribution No more Verizon exclusivity and release in more than 5 countries. They need to get in every retail/carrier store possible

Pixel 2/XL2 needs to be 90%+ screen to body ratio to keep with the current design trends and to counter iPhone 8. If it's got huge bezels it's not going to be as well received and will fall off the bandwagon as iPhone 8 will dominate as they both release at similar times.

Rad Red, Quite Black, Really Blue.. What type of sense are those names?

Proud pixel owner.... however seriously considering a switch back to iphone. literally every single thing about the pixel is better than the iphone...... except messaging. cant deal with missed SMS messages or out of order. MMS group messaging or compression anymore. Love the phone but android is terrible at messaging. RCS wont be fully implemented and around in the US for at least another year. (verizon customer)
