Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL to reach end of life in December with last update
Google is getting ready to bid farewell to the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL in December this year with the last security update coming in then.
Google's Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL recently got updated to Android 11 and received their latest security release on October 5. Post this, these two Pixel devices are going to receive one last update in December.
Come December, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL will reach end of life after three years of Android version and security updates and the 2017 devices will stop getting fixes, reported Android Police.
Much like the original Pixel last year, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL will skip the November release, but it will get a December update that will include both sets of patches.
The October security patch that it just got addressed some of the issues for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL including some of the devices getting stuck during boot, prevention of inadvertent disablement of call notifications, missing auto-rotate icon in certain device orientations and a fix for undetected overview swipe gestures in launcher.
Google announced the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL three years ago at the second Made by Google event. The smaller 5-inch Pixel 2 was boxy in shape and made by HTC and the Pixel 2 XL was a 6-inch model made by LG and came with a more rounded, modern look.
Both the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL were powered by the Snapdragon 835 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB and 128GB of storage respectively.
