    Google Pixel 2 SIM Free UK CloveThe Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 have been formally announced today by Google. We have listed both models on our site, in all available colour and memory options. You can pre-order at the links below.

    Google Pixel 2 | SIM Free | Clove

    Google Pixel 2 XL | SIM Free | Clove

    Please be aware that stock is likely to be very limited and we have noted the expected arrival dates for each model, as per the official Google Play Store.

    Google say that original Pixel managed to obtain 0.7% of market share. This, they admit, is a figure which could have been much higher had they manufactiured and distributed more effectively. This is a challenge they are willing to tackle with this next generation of phones.

    The designs are similar to the original with glass shade on the back creating a two-tone effect. The body is all aluminium with a ‘hybrid coating’. Central rear mounted fingerprint sensor which should be the fastest and most accurate on the market.

    The Pixel 2 features a 5″ Full HD always-on OLED display, while the Pixel 2 XL has a 6″ QHD+, always-on pOLED, 18:9 screen.

    There are front-facing stereo speakers but no headphone jack. This does mean that the #donglelife comes to Google. Bluetooth 5.0 is supported.

    We will have a full run down of the Google event available to read tomorrow.

  • I use a bluetooth headset with AptX most of the time, so I could live without a headset jack, but I still see it as detrimental to not have one.
