Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will go on-sale on the 31st of October at Telstra and JB Hi-Fi


The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL aren’t yet on-sale or up for pre-order in Australia but thanks to those pesky internal memos we have a date for when they’ll be in-store: October 31st.

The information comes from our own source who sent through the memo from Telstra – the exclusive Australian carrier partner for the Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL – which was sent out to staff to prep them for the on-sale date for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. This date has been corroborated by a screenshot from a JB HiFi group chat which was sent to Lifehacker last week about the launch date of the Pixel 2 – but no mention was made of the Pixel 2 XL, but now it seems both will be available on October 31st.

The pre-orders go live for Telstra on October 20th, which was announced after the Pixel event last week. Pre-orders will all be eligible for the free Google Home Mini, and now we have a date for when the orders will actually be in hands. Unfortunately we don’t have any plan information for the Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL as yet, but we’re working on it.

Do you have any information on pricing or plans for the Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL? Let us know.
