Google Pixel and Pixel XL are getting their first software update on launch day
Tomorrow, October 20, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL will be released in the US via Google Store, Verizon, Best Buy, and Project Fi. According to Verizon, tomorrow is also the day when the two smartphones will be getting their first software update, though we're not talking about anything major here.

The update that will hit the Pixel and Pixel XL starting tomorrow "improves Wi-Fi connectivity", and doesn't seem to include anything else. So the handsets will still run Android 7.1 Nougat, but the software build number is changing: from NAE63P to NDE63P. You'll probably be notified abut the update soon after you power on your Pixel.

The Pixel and Pixel XL represent a new beginning for Google. They're two of the priciest Google-branded phones ever, but that's somewhat justified by the fact that they're premium devices with top notch features. We already reviewed the Google Pixel XL, concluding that it's one of the best high-end smartphones currently on the market.

Thinking about get one but I think I'll just continue to wait for now.
