It came as a delight when Google announced that India will be one of the few countries where its Pixel smartphone duo will be launched. Following that, it was just a week ago when Google’s recently launched flagship smartphones Pixel and Pixel XL went up for pre-orders in India via major retailers like Flipkart, Chroma, Reliance Digital, and others. However, it was not revealed when the smartphones will finally hit the shelves, but not the wait is over. The search giant has announced that the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL will start shipping on October 25.Google India on Saturday in a tweet said “The future is exciting. And by future we mean 3 days from now. #Pixel will start reaching stores on 25th October #madebygoogle”. To recall, Google launched its Pixel smartphones at its October 4 event, along with a slew of other gadgets. At the event, Google also revealed that India will be one of the first six countries including the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and Germany to see the Pixel smartphones reaching the markets. Unfortunately, Google’s yet impressive Really Blue colour variant of Pixel won’t be available in India, while the Quite Black and Very Silver will ship starting Tuesday. In other news, while the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are yet to start shipping in India, we already have received the teardown details of the larger variant Pixel XL, courtesy iFixit. As per the full teardown, the AMOLED display packed in the smartphone is a Samsung manufactured display (part number AMS546KD09). Samsung has also given its UFS 2.0 internal flash storage RAM in the phone. The touchscreen controller comes from Synaptics (ClearPad S3708) and surprisingly enough, it’s just the battery that bears an HTC moniker. We have already learnt that HTC is the commercial manufacturer of the Pixel and Pixel XL, just like Apple has Foxconn as its manufacturer for the iPhone. Summing up the whole procedure of teardown, iFixit gave Google Pixel XL a score of 6 out of 10 in terms of repairability, which is one point lower than the iPhone 7 Plus.
