Google is rewarding "loyal Nexus" owners with a tantalizing discount on new hardware. In emails sent out to Nexus owners, Google pitches an exclusive 20 percent discount on the cost of a new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL handset, valid through the end of February. Unfortunately the deal is not available to the general public, but for those who own a Nexus device, this is a pretty sweet discount on a high-end Android phone.
Exactly how much you stand to save depends on which model you go for, along with the amount of onboard storage. The Pixel 2 line ranges in price from $649 (Pixel 2 with 64GB) to $949 (Pixel 2 XL with 128GB). Here is a rundown of each SKU and how much Nexus owners can save on each one:
- Pixel 2 64GB: $649 - 20 percent = $519.20 (save $129.80)
- Pixel 2 128GB: $749 - 20 percent = $599.20 (save $149.80)
- Pixel 2 XL 64GB: $849 - 20 percent = $679.20 (save $169.80)
- Pixel 2 XL 128GB: $949 - 20 percent = $759.20 (save $189.80)
Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. They also share the same camera configuration—8-megapixel camera in the front for selfies and a 12.2-megapixel around back. Where they differ is in screen size and accompanying resolution. The Pixel 2 wields a 5-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution, and the Pixel 2 XL kicks things up a notch with a 6-inch QHD+ display (2880x1440).
