The 360 degree renders revealed by OnLeaks leave nothing for us to imagine. The images tweeted by OnLeaks confirm the previously rumoured dual tone design. According to Android Authority, Google Pixel will measure 143.85 mm x 65.9 mm x 7.3 mm in terms of dimensions while the large Pixel XL is reported to have dimensions – 154.7 mm x 75.7 mm x 7.3 mm. The report claims both the smartphones will measure 7.3 mm at their thinnest point thick and 8.5 mm at their thickest point.
Google Pixel is reported to feature a 5-inch display while Pixel XL gets a larger 5.5-inch display. Both Pixel and Pixel XL will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and at least 32GB storage. Google Pixel and Pixel XL will run Android 7.1 Nougat with new feature enhancements.
The design shows a rear fingerprint scanner like last year’s Nexus lineup and a combination of metal and glass rear panel. The smartphone is rumoured to feature IPX3 certification, meaning they will be just safe from drop in water but not completely water resistant.
Google Pixel is likely to feature a 2,770mAh battery while Pixel XL will get a bigger 3,450mAh battery. Google is also likely to introduce new Pixel launcher, with emphasis on faster access and tweaked out icons.
