Google is set to show off its goods this October 4 at an event in San Francisco. This event is to be looked forward to because it's going to have a lot of announcements!

Well, let's talk about the main stars of the event, which would be the new Pixel and Pixel XL phones. These phones are said to replace Google's Nexus program.

The Pixel and Pixel XL will be basically identical; except for their sizes (the name tells us so). The Google Pixel has a 5-inch display while the Pixel XL has a 5.5-inch display.

Specs of the Upcoming Google Pixel Phones

These phones are likely to have equal overall specifications. Surely, the new Snapdragon 821 processor by Qualcomm, a 4GB of RAM, a 1080p display for the Pixel, a quad-HD screen for Pixel XL, fingerprint scanner, large batteries, and 12-megapixel cameras would make these new phones interesting in the eyes of a potential buyer. Mainly, it is to be expected that both Pixel phones will be high-end phones.

With Google's branding, it is said that these devices will still be manufactured by HTC. The phones are made with premium materials and finishes. Basing on the pictures that have been leaked, the phones feature an aluminum body design and will look very similar to the iPhone. However, the difference is the finger scanner, which is already at the back portion instead.

As what is expected, premium designs come with a premium price as well. According to a source, the Pixel phones will start at $649. Another good feature that Google offers with its new phones is that it comes with financing preferences that enable customers to manage their payment schemes.

The new Pixel phones are simultaneously launched with Android 7.1 Nougat. However, there aren't many details yet regarding the new Android OS. But one thing's for sure, Pixel phones are offering elite features, consisting of a new application launcher and an iconic design.

There are a lot more surprises to be unveiled during Google's big surprise on the big day so just stay tuned and keep yourself updated.
