Google just made history by offering seven years of software and hardware support for the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, which is a first for any Android phone manufacturer. The support isn’t just security patches, but also actual OS upgrades and repairs for the Pixel 8 series up to 2030.

Google confirmed in a blog post that its pairing software updates with seven years of hardware support. This allows you to keep your phone running even if it breaks down without having to worry about finding replacement parts.

The company hasn’t said exactly how it will make Pixel 8 repair parts available to consumers, but it’s likely that Google will partner with iFixit, just like they did for the Pixel Fold and Pixel Tablet.

In case you are curious, the Pixel 8 Pro launched a few days ago with a starting price of $999 and $699 for standard Pixel 8. The two devices have the same Google Tensor G3 processor, the same camera, and the same seven-year guarantee.

This is a big improvement over the past, when Google only offered five years of security updates and three years of Android OS upgrades. Meanwhile, Samsung, OnePlus, and Xiaomi only offer four years of Android OS upgrades and five years of security updates for their latest flagships.
