More on Google’s Pixel Software Update Promise

In an article for the Verge, Sean Hollister points to glaring gaps in Google’s promise to deliver seven years of real software updates to Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro buyers:

The hole: Google is arbitrarily locking software features behind the Pixel 8 Pro’s $999 paywall, even though the $699 Pixel 8 has the same Google Tensor G3 processor, the same camera, and the same seven-year guarantee.

If Google is already arbitrarily dividing up software features, what’s actually being promised over the next seven years?

Hollister also notes Google’s history of claiming forthcoming Pixel feature updates which do not materialize or under-deliver.
