Google unveils a new 'Pixel' phone to rival Apple

Google was having a serious issue for the shortage of Pixel smartphone over the last few months. But now, not only Google's smartphone is in the stock, it's even on sale. The deal is a part of the Google Store's Back to School event, and it's one of the first major deals that have been seen on the Pixel and Pixel XL since their release last October.

Interestingly, the Google Pixel XL with a 5.5-inch screen is now having a starting price of $569. However, the smaller Google Pixel, with a 5-inch display now costs $524 and up for sale, as reported by CNET. These prices stand for discounts of $200 and $125, respectively, and are available directly from Google's store. The said deal also includes a free Daydream View VR headset worth $60.

It should be noted that it is currently the middle of August and this is the time when everyone is expecting an upgraded Google Pixel 2 line release in the next few weeks. If the last year's release cycle is to be considered, then Pixel 2 will be launched in October.

The Google Pixel is still a great phone, with one of the best cameras seen on a device to date. The smartphone is said to be getting an upgrade to Google's newest Android O operating system sooner than any other device on the market, as reported The Verge.

According to rumors, upcoming Pixel 2's one variant will be having a huge, edge-to-edge, 18:9 screen size. The specs of the device are likely top-notch, though it's quite possible that the new smartphone won't have a headphone jack, so if that's an issue, the current Pixel discount deal is even better. The Google Pixel 2 release date is still up in the air, though an October launch is imminent.
