Google Pixel 2 receives major price cut on Flipkart


E-commerce portal Flipkart will host its Big Shopping Days Sale from December 7 - 9.

Pixel 2 buyers will pay $65 for the Google Home, a 50% haircut from the smart speaker's original retail price of $129.99.

Google Pixel 2 was launched at Rs 61,000 for the 64GB storage model, but Flipkart is offering a flat discount of Rs 11,001 and Rs 10,000 off on using any credit or debit card for the purchase.

Moreover, Kdi Capital Prtnrs Ltd Liability Corporation has 2.19% invested in CVS Health Corporation (NYSE:CVS) for 79,921 shares. The pharmacy operator reported $1.50 earnings per share for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.49 by $0.01.

As a part of its Big Shopping Days sale, Flipkart will be turning heads indeed when it puts the almighty Google Pixel 2 on sale with a heavy discount.

We won't know if that is the case until they begin rolling out the OTA update for 8.1, but Google did just announce the Android, Pixel, and Nexus security bulletin for this month. Interestingly, that's almost Rs. 20,000 discount from the original price on Google's flagship smartphone.

For those unaware, the Pixel 2 comes with a 5-inch Full HD display with 16:9 aspect ratio, a water and dust resistant aluminium unibody, a 12.2MP rear-camera with f/1.8 aperture and an 8MP front snapper. Google claims that the fingerprint sensor is the fastest on a smartphone.

Falcons DB cleared from concussion protocol, to play Thursday vs. Saints
There is a HUGE Thursday Night Football in Week 14 of the National Football League between a pair of NFC South rivals. Atlanta needs a win on Thursday night to pull within one game of the NFC South leading Saints (9-3).

Android 8.1 isn't a huge update, but it does enable the Pixel Visual Core on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, which is a co-processor that improves the speed of taking HDR photos, as well as making them less of a drain on your phone's battery.

The biggest beneficiaries of Android 8.1 could be those on low-end devices though, as Google has also crafted the Android Oreo (Go edition).

Google has made a decision to go for a single camera setup similar to last year's Pixel phones.

Threat of rain increases as cold front approaches
Despite a mainly cloudy and eventually wet day, today will easily be the mildest day of an otherwise increasingly colder forecast. The mountains of western North Carolina could see snow showers early Wednesday morning, but only rain outside of the mountains.

Again, Google says that Pixel and Nexus images won't be up until tomorrow.
