When presenting the flagship smartphones Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, Google promised to provide operating system updates and security systems for them for seven years. This is a significant amount of time for the device to break, and it is unlikely that the battery will still feel good after so many years. However, Google promises that the new generation of smartphones will also receive 7 years of hardware support.
A Google spokesperson said the company will provide replacement parts for the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro for the full seven-year period. “Spare parts are available for seven years. This is part of our commitment as we approach the seven year period in which we must make our parts available so you can keep your devices running during this time“Soniya Jobanputra, head of product management at Google, told Android Authority.
Unfortunately, Google hasn’t revealed any further details about it. According to GSMArena.com, Google will most likely offer replacement parts for the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro in Europe and India through its official website and in the US through service partner iFixit.
