Along with the additions to the LineageOS 17.1 roster mentioned above, the LineageOS team has also added LineageOS 16.0 (based on Android 9 Pie) support for the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. The maintainer decided to release LineageOS 16 support for the Pixel 2 series so that users have a chance to experience the Android 9 Pie version of the ROM on their devices before they move on to the Android 10 build.
