Google is slowly making its hardware more available in Singapore.
Instead of working with one telco to launch its latest Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones, the tech giant will be making the phones available via Singtel and StarHub from Nov 1.
Preorders on Google Store were also opened at 10am on Wednesday (Oct 10) morning, the same time Google officially unveiled its latest hardware in Singapore.
The phones come in three colours – Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink – but Singtel will be the only telco where you can get your hands on the Not Pink.
The 5.5-inch Pixel 3 is priced at S$1,249, and the Pixel 3 XL will cost you S$1,399.
Apart from the Pixel, Google also launched the Pixel Stand, a new wireless charging stand which boasts seven hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging.
Priced at S$119, the Pixel Stand is meant to turn the Pixel 3 into a visual and audio AI assistant. When left idle, the phone being charged turns into a digital photo frame by displaying a photo slideshow.
If you get the Pixel via StarHub, you will get the Google Home (S$189) for free, while Singtel customers who preorder the Pixel with the Data X 3 or Data X 4 add-on bundles will get the Pixel Stand for free.
