Does Optus having Google Home mean Google Pixel 2 is coming?

Now that you have the Google Home, does that mean you'll likely be getting the next Pixel phones? I really want a Pixel XL 2 and don't want to buy it outright (or have to move to Telstra). 

 

Will you also be bundling the Home with plans?

Re: Does Optus having Google Home mean Google Pixel 2 is coming?

I hope so! But you won't get an answer on here until it's officially announced and the Pixel 2 doesn't even have a release date. As a positive for us, it's not uncommon for manufacturers to partner with 1 telco in a country for the launch of their first handset and then expand as they release their 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations so lets keep our fingers crossed that's what google do!

Hey M0F0, at this point in time I wouldn't be too sure, but if there's any announcements we'll let you know 🙂 

 

In My Account you can actually choose to receive notifications about different types of phones coming out to us too!


Cheers,

Where do you set these notifications? The link you posted just goes to a help page.

Ah right! Easily explained though, just log into My Account, then go to Profile > My Subscriptions > Handset PreRegistration 🙂

 

Currently because we don't stock the Pixel, the option for Google isn't there, but if we do end up stocking it, it will definitely be there too.

 

Cheers,

I read the Pixel 2 will be exclusive to Telstra. As much as I dislike Telstra all the Optus customers who aren't interested in purchasing the phone outright will be left with no choice as to change carrier.  It's exciting times ahead for Google and Google hardware and I want to be part of it so let's hope Optus can pull some strings and make it happen otherwise they will loose customers.

After 25 years with Optus, i still stuck by when they didnt get the G6, then no Nokia 8 finally no Pixel. 

thisbroke my heart and i was super upset - I thought maybe Pixel 2 - nope just found out they dont have that. 

I cant afford to buy this outright - i pay for a plan, data and even insurace. 

Optus - you are loosing a very very loyal customer - https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/google?TR:TR:oct17:corp:postmob:bill:top:pixelfom
