Google Releases December's Security Bulletin, Images Coming Tomorrow

You can find out more details about this software update for the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones at the link below. Interestingly, that's almost Rs. 20,000 discount from the original price on Google's flagship smartphone.

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.

The Xiaomi Mi A1 which is now priced at Rs 14,999 will get a discount of Rs 2,000 and will be available at Rs 12,999 during the sale.

Google's December security bulletin for Pixel and Nexus smartphones lists 42 vulnerabilities that are to be patched in an update.

The Pixel 2 sports a 5-inch Cinematic full-HD display with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

The fingerprint sensor sits at the back of the device but, this time around the "glass window" is smaller. And although most device manufacturers have put out their own KRACK fixes, Google has included a fix in the December security patch as well. The Pixel 2 is water resistant as well.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flaunts 12MP single camera lens with OIS and f/1.7 aperture lens. Google has introduced new features in the camera department like the addition of AR. Verizon release notes for the Pixel and Pixel 2 specify that it addresses that particular issue. Then the company announces their Pixel/Nexus security bulletin and it includes fixes that are specific to only the Nexus and Pixel devices that they are still maintaining. The portrait mode works on both rear and font facing cameras, just like the new iPhones.
