Google is set to launch a range of its new devices on Oct. 4. But a leaked image has been released ahead of the said event. It shows the company's highly publicized new Pixel X, XL phones.
The Pixel and Pixel XL phones will be showcased along with the new rebranded Google Pixel 7 tablet and the Google Home. The Pixel phones were originally part of Google's Nexus brand. The company now seems to be leaving the Nexus brand behind.
Google Pixel's Leaked Image
Based on the image, The Verge describes the Google Pixel as a very stripped-down and no-frills device. They added that it has similarities with the Nexus 5X and the iPhone 7. It's not a surprise that the Google Pixel phone could be inspired by the iPhone 7's design. Google has regarded its new Pixel phones as a competition to Apple's iPhone 7.
Price Is Expected To Start At $649
The new Pixel phones are expected to have a higher price than previously thought. According to the Android Police, a trusted source revealed that the cost of the Google Pixel X start at $649. Naturally, the bigger Google Pixel XL will cost even more.
Pixels Phones Compared To The iPhone 7 And Galaxy
According to Forbes, the Pixel phones don't seem to be waterproof. This alone makes it hard for Google to compete against Apple and Samsung's phones. Both the new iPhone 7 and the latest Samsung Galaxy flagships have some level of waterproofing.
The Pixel phones are said to have an aluminum-and-glass construction. They are both equipped with 12 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The Google Pixel X would have a 5-inch 1080p display and a 2770 mAh battery. On the other hand, the Pixel XL will have a 5.5-inch QHD display and a 3450mAh battery.
