Google Teases Pixel Phones: Camera Capabilities, Prices And What We Know So Far
The new Google Pixel Phones are expected to be announced at a company event on Oct. 4. Hours after a teaser commercial showcased the smartphone, the tech giant is again in it for another surprise. Apparently, it has hinted on what the photos taken by its new line of smartphones might look like.
The new smartphones, Google Pixel and the Pixel XL are coming, thanks to a leaked teaser video titled, "Google: Oct 4." The video shows off a shape-shifting design which eventually creates the shape of a smartphone. Google even created a new web page that shows different high-quality photos. However, no further details were released.
Speaking of photos, the high-quality photos posted on the webpage are too intricate and clear. Thus, it's hard to believe that these photos were taken by an ordinary smartphone. However, it's maybe what Google is hinting at. With the name of the smartphone itself, Pixel, it may sport some significant advancement when it comes to camera quality.
In another leak, a potential price of the smartphone has been hinted. The Google Pixel may cost about $649 while the Pixel XL might cost higher. Other hints say that the smartphone may sport a 4GB RAM and would run on an Android 7.1 Nougat.
Also, leaked photos show the smartphones have 5-inch and 5.5- inch screens, front and rear cameras, ambient light sensor, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and glass panel.
Apart from the two smartphones being launched on Google's October event, the company is expected to announce its Google Home, the company's take on Amazon Echo. Other announcements include Daydream VR, it's take on the Samsung Gear VR and Chromecast, which is capable of a 4K playback, reports claim.
Lastly, rumors say that the tech giant will drop Nexus as its name for its smartphones, which was created in 2009.
