So, this is the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. While a lot of details of the phone have been out over the past few weeks ahead of the launch in San Francisco on Tuesday, thanks to Canadian carrier Bell some good images of the new flagship are also out.
While the photos have almost underlined the similarities with the iPhone, it is the first time that a photo of the white version has come to light. However, unlike the iPhone the Pixel does not have a home button. In fact, even the capacitive keys seem to be missing. The phone also showcases what seems to be Android Nougat 7.1 with circular icons and a more prominent placement for Google Now.
The general expectation is that the smaller Pixel will have a 5-inch 1080p Full HD screen and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage. Cameras will be 12MP on the back and 8MP on the front. Android Police claims Pixel devices will come with a top mounted headphone jack and rear fingerprint scanner. The smartphone will be powered by a 2,770mAh and support USB-C port for charging.
So far it is unclear who will be the new partner for Google in making these phones. Earlier, Google has partnered with LG and HTC for its flagship devices.
