Google confirms Pixel 2 launches in Australia on October 31st

There’s been no official word since they announced the phones on October 4th on when we’ll be able to buy a Pixel 2 (or Pixel 2 XL) in Australia but it’s now official: October 31st is the day.

We’ve had unofficial confirmation through leaks from both Telstra (the exclusive carrier partner) and JB Hifi, but it’s always nice to have it official and Google Australia has now confirmed the date through posts on their social media channels:

Ausdroid is Advertising Supported

Telstra hasn’t announced pricing for their plans but are expected to when they begin taking pre-orders for the Pixel 2 this Friday (20th of October). Google has not spoken about pre-orders through the Google Store, nor pre-orders through retailers but have announced the outright pricing for the phones:

Pixel 2 Pixel 2 XL
64GB $1,079 $1,399
128GB $1,229 $1549

" Daniel Tyson : @phroghollow Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it. Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.."

  • Don't you guys have a contact at Google PR? Why can't you ask them what the preorder situation is? If they won't tell you then publish that they won't tell you.

  • Preorders are open now! Seems it was available from 12am AEDT. I checked at about 9:20PM WST and the BUY link was available. Here we go!
