Google recently began selling out Pixel and Pixel XL to clear the way for their successors, the announcement of which is scheduled for early October. Part of the stock of the manufacturer gives away free of charge. Messages about this appeared on Reddit. True, this is only possible if there is a faulty Nexus 6P (there are a certain number of complaints about the battery that lead to spontaneous power failure). According to the source, some users in the US and Canada have managed to replace the smartphone they bought on the Google Play Store (strictly there) with a newer model, while the UK and Australia still give out the Nexus 6P. Sometimes in the exchange are offered even those devices for which the warranty period has expired.
A single “algorithm”, by which the exchange is not revealed – users get different editions of the smartphone, but the owners of Nexus 6P at 64 GB are more likely to get Pixel XL 128 GB. The main condition – the device must be purchased in the store Google Play. Recall, Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be presented on October 4. By that time, Google is planning to sell off existing stocks.
