According to sources Google will have the Pixel 2 ready for release on October 19th just a few weeks after the official announcement. If you want the larger version of the device you will have to wait more than a month. The Google Pixel 2 XL wont release until November 15th. There is no indication as to why the LG made Pixel 2 XL will be delayed. We were told a while bach that Google was putting together a deal for OLED panels with LG which could be the cause of the delay. Either way hopefully whatever is keeping the phone from releasing won't mean we have less units at launch.
