Though the public is excited about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, there are still those who are waiting out for the iPhone 8. This is because the anniversary unit from Apple is expected to pack in a lot of new features and possibly a new design concept. But by waiting, Apple is leaving the door open for other smartphone manufacturers, such as Google, who is stepping up with its Pixel X and Pixel XL.
Pixel X And Pixel XL: Renders
As GSM Arena notes, a render of the devices was recently released, which may believe is close to how the units will actually look. Reportedly, the Pixel X and Pixel XL will be indistinguishable from each other and will only vary in size - with Google taking a page out of Apple's books.
Furthermore, the renders illustrate that the upcoming Google devices will feature circular icons as opposed to the standard rectangular ones.
Pixel X And Pixel XL: Features
As Android Police notes, the new features of the Pixel X and Pixel XL include a redesigned set of navigation icons, which are definitely more minimalist than those currently found in Android devices. However, it is unclear at this point whether or not the new design comes specific to the Google devices, or if all Android devices will see this as Android 7.1 Nougat is released.
Pixel And Pixel XL: Specifications
As previously mentioned, both devices are expected to sport the same specifications and differ only in size. So while the Pixel X is expected to sport a 5-inch screen, the Pixel XL will have a 5.5-inch screen, both of which will be AMOLED. The smaller variant will also have a 2770 mAh battery, while its larger partner will have a 3450 mAh battery.
Both handhelds are also expected to have at least 32GB of internal storage, a USB Type-C port at the bottom portion of the units and a 3.5mm audio jack on the upper portion. In addition, the Pixel and Pixel XL will feature a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front shooter. Both devices are expected to run Android 7.1 Nougat straight from the box.
