Pixel 2 prices drop as Google reveals some shock news for fans

Android users Google has removed these apps from Play Store delete them from your phones right away

As spotted by Android Police consumers who directly visit the Pixel 2 page are now pushed to the Pixel 3 listing instead - mirrored by Google's Australian website too. As such, it's safe to assume that Call Screen may initially start out with Moto and Nokia phones and then later expand to Android One handsets from other OEMs.

The disappearance was foreshadowed by discounts on Pixel 2 and XL in February of $100 and $250 respectively.

IN THE WEEK that has seen Google+, Inbox and goog.le consigned to the digital graveyard, Google has also unexpectedly killed off the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The US technology firm has just removed the Pixel 2 from its own store meaning you can no longer buy it directly from them. One reason why Google might be discontinuing the series is to make way for its rumored Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, which have been doing the rounds lately. Further, speculations or some educated guesses suggest the "unreleased phone" would be the upcoming mid-ranger Pixel 3a. Previously, the older Pixel 2 was selling for $649, which still made it the most expensive entry-level smartphone from a manufacturer, but it was better than only carrying the Pixel 3.

Sadly, that only really happens for two kinds of phones: Google's own Pixels and Essential one and only PH-1. There were the usual Pixel features-a great build of stock Android, fast updates, and a great camera-but the Pixel 2 was the last phone from Google with an aluminum body.
