Google stops selling the original Pixel and Pixel XL

Google stops selling the original Pixel and Pixel XL
Although you can still purchase the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones from various retailers like Best Buy and Amazon, Google will no longer sell them. After consumers noticed the phones have been removed from the online Google Store, the search giant confirmed yesterday that it has decided to stop selling the original Pixel and Pixel XL.

Instead, customers are now recommended to buy the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google's latest Android flagships, which will most likely be replaced next year by the new wave of smartphones the company plans to reveal later in 2018.

If you're still looking to buy a Pixel XL, you can pick one up from Best Buy for $500 outright or $19.99 per month for 24 months (Verizon model). Also, the original Pixel is still up for sale on Amazon for $385 and it comes unlocked (32GB model).

You can also try eBay if you want better deals, but the bottom line is you'll no longer be able to buy the original Pixel and Pixel XL directly from Google, so don't look for them in the Store.

Because you're on phonearena and no one can post anything without being a rabid fanboy.

'Google's latest Android flagships, which will most likely be replaced next year by the new wave of smartphones the company plans to reveal later in 2018.' May wish to edit the next year part
