For years Google had the Nexus line of smartphones which showcased its Android OS the way it should be, without any additional bloatware. Google seems to be moving to a new smartphone series that would showcase Android. The coming Google Pixel line is said to be the next ones that would take over the Google Nexus line of phones.
The coming Google Pixel and Pixel XL are said to be the successors of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, according to Phone Arena. The two Nexus smartphones have proven to be popular, and the coming Google Pixel line hopes to follow in their success. For the coming Google Pixel phones, HTC will be handling both of them.
The coming smartphones have been seen recently being benchmarked at Geekbench. The Google Pixel XL has been seen before at Geekbench, though as GSM Arena reports that this time, it is seen together with the Google Pixel as having Android Nougat 7.1. Both smartphones also look similar physically, with size being the only noteworthy difference.
The Google Pixel XL would be the larger of the two with 5.5 inches of screen size while the Google Pixel will have 5.2 inches of screen size. At least for the Google Pixel XL, it will have 4 GB RAM. There is still some conflicting reports about the processor for the new Google Pixel smartphones, with a report saying that it will have a Snapdragon 820 processor while another report has it as a Snapdragon 821 processor.
It is also not certain whether the Google Pixel phones will have dual camera. Though dual cameras seem to be the trend for some smartphones, it might be that the Google Pixel phones might have the regular single rear camera configuration. It is also not certain whether it will have a physical home screen button or not. Some renders show that it might have though there are other renders which don't show it.
As its release comes closer there would be more details coming out about the Google Pixel smartphones. As with any leaks, features might change with the final versions of the smartphones.
