Google Pixel 3 XL (64GB, unlocked) for $200

If you are looking for a budget pure Android phone that gets Android 12 but will not get any future OS updates, and you are not tempted by the boiling hot hype machine of the Google Pixel 6 ($600+ for the regular, $900+ for the PRO), then you may be interested in this limited time sale at B&H Photo, it is the new condition carrier-unlocked (T-Mobile Unlocked phone, works with CDMA and GSM) Google Pixel 3 XL (64GB, Just Black) on sale for $200 with free US shipping.

Note that the Pixel 3 will stop getting updates after October 2021 (as of the time of writing = NOW) per the Google help page. All Pixel phones before the Pixel 6 get three years of guaranteed OS and security updates. Starting with the Pixel 6, the security updates increase to five years. The OS updates remain at three years.

PS: for those not familiar with the Pixel line, keep in mind that there’s no microSD card and the non-a models do not have a headphone jack.
