Verizon Wireless has released a software update for their Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. The update comes with some security fixes. The update comes with the December security patch for Google's Android OS.
In addition to the latest security patch firmware OPM1.171019.011 also includes a fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi WPA2 security vulnerability. The rollout has just begun, so it may take time for the update notification to pop up on your device, so be patient, as reported by GSM Arena.

Google Pixel 2 looks somewhat like the original Pixel in terms of design. Even though the new Pixel 2 is a bit sleeker. The device boasts a 5-inch Full HD display with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio and fingerprint scanner sit on the rear side. On the other hand, Google Pixel 2 XL comes featuring a 6-inch P-OLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flaunts 12MP single camera lens with OIS and f/1.7 aperture lens. Both the smartphones sports 'Portrait mode' as well though there is no dual rear camera. Google is depended on software to achieve this effect. Both cameras have EIS and OIS as well for video. The front camera is 8MP.
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL pack a Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM. There's no option to expand the internal storage. Google will give unlimited storage for photos, videos at the highest resolution and these can be backed up to the Google Photos app.
