Verizon clarified that there is no 256GB variant of the Google Pixel or Pixel XL. Reps from the U.S. carrier corrected the mistake on a trade-in chart, which showed a 256GB model for the Google Android phones. The information was actually for the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which offer the said internal storage.
A Verizon staff incorrectly copied the trade-in deal for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and placed it on the Pixel and Pixel XL. The Apple flagship phones both offer a 256GB variant. The Google phones are only available in 32GB and 128GB models.
The so-called 256GB Pixel and Pixel XL were just a dud and were a product of laziness by a Verizon employee. Verizon was quick to address the issue and assures the public that it will fix the matter as soon as possible. To see how the chart looks like, see the image below.
Google launched the Pixel family of Android phones to replace the unpopular Nexus family. The Pixel and Pixel XL are developed to compete directly with iPhones as consumer devices. Both garnered positive reviews from the tech community.
The Google Pixel XL was a regular fixture in the lists of 2016's best smartphones. Forbes magazine's Jay McGregor declared it as the best smartphone of 2016. It beat out close rival phones from Apple, Samsung, LG, and OnePlus.
The financial magazine used several metrics before it adjudged the Pixel XL as the best phone of 2016. They include battery life, camera, build, sound quality, and overall design. In a nutshell, McGregor described the Pixel XL as the most efficient Android experience on the market.
