Google is replacing faulty Nexus 6P devices with free Pixel XL

Now that the iPhone X, as well as the iPhone 8 siblings, have been thoroughly revealed, the ball is once again in Google's court and expectations are riding high. The sighting of the billboard comes just as the LG-manufactured Pixel 2 XL passes through FCC. To compare, the smaller, Google Pixel 2 smartphone features the model number G011A.

It is now learnt that the affected 6P users in the USA and Canada are more likely to get a Pixel than those in the United Kingdom and Australia wherein affected 6P units are being replaced with refurbished units of the same model.

Instances of the device's battery shutting down abruptly have been reported on numerous occasions, while some 6P owners got lucky with a free Pixel replacement from Google.
