Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL phone photos leaked ahead of launch
Google’s October 4 hardware event aka Google 10/4 Pixel Phone event is scheduled for tomorrow and Sunder Pichai and co. are keeping it as tight lipped as possible. But a UK store, Carphone Warehouse may have just given it up, much to Google’s dislike. Accidently or not, the site posted its Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL product pages, which were instantly removed, not before catching eyes of swift bloggers at 9to5Google. The leaked screenshots captured reveal the specification and images of the two smartphones Google has been possessive about all this while.
The grabbed screenshots with “Introducing Pixel, Phone by Google” confirm the 143 grams Pixel will have a 5-inch Full-HD AMOLED display 4GB of RAM, 32 to 128GB variants with MicroSD card support, 12MP rear camera, 8MP selfie shooter all powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and 2,770mAh battery. The phone will run Android Nougat 7.1.
The Pixel XL will feature a 5.5-inch, 1,440 x 2,560 pixel AMOLED display along with other specs same as the Pixel. Pixel XL will however wear a larger 3,450mAh battery and it will weigh only 168 grams.
Both the smartphones feature support fast USB Type-C charging slot and will come with host of Google centric features including built-in Google Assistant and pre-installed apps like Google Allo and Google Duo.
Though, the posting grabbed through Carphone Warehouse seem real, there is no way to confirm their authenticity. So, the best we can do is, wait just another day and see if Google has anything different to show from what we already know.
