Earlier today, after a Nest commercial that may have showcased – for a few seconds – one of Google’s yet-to-be-announced Pixel handsets. Now, it looks like we can see not just one, but both upcoming Pixel phones, which are expected to be announced sometime soon, possibly in October 4.
As you may have heard, Google is seemingly getting ready to release a regular Pixel (sporting a 5-inch 1080p display), and a Pixel XL (with a larger, high-res 5.5-inch Quad HD screen). Assuming that the leaked images included below are genuine, the two upcoming Google smartphones look very alike, differing only in size. The devices have rear cameras with LED flashes, round fingerprint scanners on the back, USB Type-C ports at the bottom, and power and volume buttons on the right side.
It’s said that both the Pixel and Pixel XL are manufactured by HTC and are made out of metal (aluminum), though there’s a portion on the rear (housing the camera and fingerprint scanner) that appears to be made out of glass.
According to previous rumors, the Pixel and Pixel XL are powered by Snapdragon 820 processors, and will likely run Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. Mind you, these won’t be the world’s first phones to ship with Nougat, as this honor is reserved to the LG V20.
Prices for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL could start at $649 (unlocked), but we really hope that this isn’t true.
