How much does it cost in Australia?

Google’s first phone was an amazing entry into the smartphone market, and one year later, they have stepped it up again.

Pre-orders for the phone are already open through the Google store, and the phone is set to ship on Thursday 19th October.

Google is offering four different Pixel 2’s at varying price points.

5-Inch Pixel 2 6-Inch Pixel 2 XL
64 GB $1,079 $1,339
128 GB $1,229 $1,549

JB Hi-Fi has also announced that they will stock the phone, but are yet to release their prices.

Telstra, Optus, Vodaphone? Where can I buy the Google Pixel 2?

If you’re not keen on buying the phone outright, and would rather grab it on a plan with an Australian carrier, then Telstra is your only option.

Like the original Pixel, Telstra has scored exclusive carrier rights.

Telstra announced this morning that both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be available to pre-order on the 20th October.

There is no sign of Telstra’s pricing for the new handsets yet, but with those outright prices, we expect some solid repayment costs when they do announce their plans.

Check back with Techly to get more info as it comes.
