Very basic looking for a flagship.Each year Google seems to push the Pixel upmarket and sell less.That style and say a mid-range 710/636 Snapdragon chip, a HD only screen and decent camera for half the price would sell well.

Or it recognises that manyz particularly leisure travellers like a stopover, and Singapore may be more appealing than Dubai.I don't see how giving passengers more options can be a bad thing.. Dubai will still provide the most route options by a long way
