Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL Revealed By Bunch of Retailers WIth Specs And More Renders

 

Google's event is tomorrow and right before it, new leaks from UK store Carphone Warehouse providing the most extensive look at the Pixel and Pixel XL. While some specs don’t quite add up, there are several product shots and renders that appear to come directly from Google.   







“Introducing Pixel. Phone by Google” appears to the tagline Google is using for both phones. While we’ve seen front and rear renders of both the Pixel and Pixel XL, we have yet to see them side-by-side like we do in the first image. We are also getting our first close look at the sides of both devices.  

The identical and interchangeable looking nature of the Pixel and Pixel XL is reflected in the “Available in 2 sizes” line from one image. On the bottom, we see two cutouts beside the USB-C port for what appears to be two rear firing speakers. Battery-wise, a 15 minute charge will result in 7 hours of battery life.  
In the slide titled “Your own personal Google Assistant,” it appears that we have the first glance of the new Assistant-infused Google app. It matches the interface that Sundar Pichai used to first show off the Google Assistant at I/O. A microphone icon allows users to manually start speaking, while there are Allo-like suggestions just above it. Confirming a previous app teardown, a slide about Google Photos reveals how these two devices will offer “unlimited storage for your photos and videos, all stored at full resolution.”  

Both pages feature a full specifications list, but some entries are likely generic. Namely, the inclusion of a microSD card slot and the supposed 1920 x 1080 “quad HD display” for the regular Pixel. 

Here are the specs according to CW:

Those two images aren’t revealing much new, but the Google Search pill in the top left corner is now showing a voice search icon, which certainly is new. Also, those images show “7:00” as the time, which has often been an indicator of the version of Android a phone will run, but Carphone Warehouse says specifically that the phones will run Android 7.1.  Here is the Bell site before it was pulled:  pixel bell canada  
So, what do you think? We now know a lot about Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL phones. Are either of them going to be your next phone?
