Google is Not Happy Screen Burn-in Complaints on Pixel 2 XL

The deliveries for the Pixel 2 will start from November 1 and in case you have ordered a Pixel 2 XL you will get the same post November 15.

That being said, if Android fans can look beyond the display's shortcomings, then the Pixel 2 XL offers a great way to experience Android Oreo at its best.

The most noteworthy of these new features is the Neural Networks API, which Burke says is part of Google's attempts to bring machine intelligence to Android. The first developer preview comes out earlier than Google had previously announced and another preview is expected to arrive in the following weeks before the release of the final Android 8.1 Oreo upgrade.

The Pixel Visual Core is created to change this, so there should be no need to switch between apps to take the ideal picture. There will be a better system for notifications. The alerts that go beyond one per second will simply end up lost and not be queued up for later.

It has added the date on the Ambient Display with 8.1 preview, which it had removed in the Android Oreo 8.0. It can also be downloaded and flashed to your device or loaded through the Android emulator. Likewise, when the phone has a lighter shaded wallpaper, the app drawer will also appear light.

If you are already running on the beta program, Google will send out an OTA update in the near future. It also shows you how to join the beta, some things you should do before you install Android 8.1, and some details current and prospective beta users need to know about the Nexus 6P's version of Android 8.1.
