Singtel has signed on as the exclusive telco partner in Singapore for Google's planned Pixel 2 XL smartphone.
The operator will become the first in Southeast Asia to launch the device for customers when it is launched on November 15, Singtel said.
The Cat 11 LTE compatible Pixel 2 XL will support data speeds of up to 500Mbps island-wide using Singtel's LTE-Advanced network. It will also support a localized version of the Google Assistant virtual assistant service, which will be launched soon for use with Singaporean English.
The device is now available for pre-order on Singtel's website.
“We’re excited to bring the Pixel 2 XL to Singapore. It is a device that many Android fans here have been eagerly waiting for, and we are sure they will be amazed by its innovative features,” Singtel CEO consumer Singapore Yuen Kuan Moon said.
“With our extensive 4G network speeds and new Combo plans, coupled with our unlimited data options, customers will enjoy the optimal Google Pixel 2 XL experience.”
