Google Pixel 2 officially discontinued

Rumors of Google releasing a more affordable entry in the Pixel 3 range of phones have been circulating for a while, and the latest evidence of that may have come directly from Google. It has quietly removed the standard and XL models from the store leaving only the Pixel 3. They also featured the interesting Active Edge, which let you squeeze the sides of the phones to trigger the Google Assistant. Recent rumours suggest the incoming handsets could cost half as much as their flagship siblings, with the so-called Pixel 3a set to fetch around €450 (around £380) when it arrives in May. During the time when the new devices were officially unveiled, the Pixel 2 XL was discounted to $699 while the Pixel 2 remained unchanged at $649.

The April update also improves voice unlock performance and WiFi connectivity during eSIM activation on the 3 and 3 XL, as well as Bluetooth connectivity on the Pixel and Pixel XL.

Even though the Pixel 2 only launched less than two years ago, the discontinuance is not unusual for Google.

Another reason why the Pixel 2 has been so popular is its camera which is still regarded as one of the best on a phone.

Previously, Google treated click-fraud apps as a mere Play Store policy violation.
