Before buying Google's Pixel, Pixel XL smartphones, make sure they are original!

San Francisco: Yes, it is possible. Because the search engine giant, according to a media report, has removed the original first-generation Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones from its online Google store. However, some third-party retailers are still the devices, which creates a vulnerable situation for buyers. As spotted by Android Police, the main page now redirects you to another page where only Pixel 2 and accessories for it are available to purchase.

The price difference between the first generation phone and the latest one was not so much which prompted the company to drop the original version of this dream smartphone, the report added. Another report said that Some third-party retailers are still selling the phone, though we’re not sure how much longer that will last. Currently, Amazon is selling both new and refurbished versions of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL,” reported Digital Trends.

India was among the first six countries where Pixel was launched in October 2016, starting at Rs 57,000 and now it costs around Rs 41,000 while the Pixel 2 could be available at Rs 61,000 as starting price. Pixel was the first smartphone with Google Assistant — a built-in AI programme that works as an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator like Apple’s “Siri”.
