One of the surefire signs that a new thing is coming is when a retailer stops selling the old thing. Or when the retailer puts on a fire sale for the old thing in an effort to clear out all the inventory before encouraging shoppers to rush in to replace that old, obsolete piece of garbage with the new and shiny thing. If this is indeed the case, the Pixel 2 could be right around the corner, because the Google Pixel and Pixel XL have been discontinued by Rogers and Fido.

This news comes by way of MobileSyrup, whose sources say that the Canadian wireless carrier and its canine-inspired underling are discontinuing the 32GB Pixel in black and the 32GB/128GB Pixel in silver. This is confirmed when checking the Rogers website, but with an important caveat.

Yes, it’s true that those particular SKUs are no longer being listed. However, the 32GB Pixel in blue is still on there, as well as the 32GB Pixel XL in all three colors. Given this, maybe Rogers and Fido aren’t quite ready to give up on Google’s flagship phone from late 2016 just yet. It may indicate that the phasing out process has begun.

Looking ahead, we’ve come across plenty of rumors about what’s going to happen with the next generation Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel XL 2. They could come from different manufacturers, for starters, and the Pixel XL 2 could implement the “squeeze” tech we see in the HTC U11. We might also see an always-on display, like with LG’s and Samsung’s current flagships.


Along with removing certain versions of the current Google Pixel, Rogers and Fido have also removed the Moto Z from their respective lists of offerings. Could this mean that a Z2 is on the way soon?
