Pixel 3 XL in Taiwan?


#1

I have heard that Google Pixel phones are not available in Taiwan, but I just read that the Pixel 3 XL (which is due to get announced on October 9th) is currently being ‘certified’ in Taiwan. I’m not sure what this means exactly but I’m wondering if this phone might be available here.

I’m trying to decide if I should wait to have a look at the Google Pixel 3 XL instead of buying the Note 9.

Thanks for any ideas.

Might just mean it can legally be used with Taiwanese telecommunication systems (ie mobile phone towers), kind of like FCC certification.

I wanted the Pixel 2.

I heard Pixel 2 was coming to Taiwan.

I waited for the Pixel 2.

Pixel 2 did not come to Taiwan.

I waited more.

I got fed up.

I bought the Pixel 2 from some dude online…that brought it from Canada.

I like the Pixel 2.

I did not like how Taiwan made the Pixel 2, but does not sell it here.

Ya, very strange.

What difference does it make if it’s certifiedd or not ? I would have assumed it’s just a question of what frequencies the pixel supports and if it’s the same they use in Taiwan. If it’s the same, it will work

I´ll wait for in in October and November. If it comes, OK, if it doesn´t… I´ll buy elsewhere or pick a different one. I am so sad that my reliable LG G4 seems to be about to kick the bucket. It is so convenient to be able to switch batteries. And the camera is awesome.

It’s actually frustrating, lots of tech like acer and Asus put out their newest line of products out in the Us market months before they bring it to Taiwan.

Apparently, the answer is yes:

The store page is there.

I feel like it’s too big for me. I don’t like having to use two hands all the time.

The regular Pixel 3 is a tiny bit smaller than my HTC 10. It may be manageable.
