Google Pixel Gets Even Better With New Android 7.1.1 Build But iPhone Rival Still Hard To Find

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are fast becoming the hit smartphone of 2016.

Usual top-selling companies, Samsung and Apple, have had a few tumbles down the road with regards to their flagship phones.

Everyone already knows the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco while many are still scratching their heads with what Apple did (and did not do) with the iPhone 7.

Enter Google with its impressive duo of Pixel handsets.

Android 7.1.1

Not one to rest on its laurels, Google has introduced a new update for the Pixel handsets. Last Monday, the new Android 7.1.1 began rolling out to the said handsets. The update included a couple of new Moves and capability to fix some issues including the ones regarding connectivity problems.

The new Moves or gestures correspond to an action that makes Pixel use easier, faster and more enjoyable.

One build was made available for North America, Europe, and Verizon.

Aside from an updated operating system, the Pixel handset boasts of a 5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution while the Pixel XL comes with a 5.5-inch display with a higher resolution, 2560 x 1440 to be precise. The former has a 2,770 mAh non-removable battery while the latter is powered by a 3,450 mAh battery.

Both Pixel devices run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chips and have two cameras, one in front (8MP) and one at the back (12MP). They also come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 128GB of internal storage.

Where to buy Google Pixel

Since the Pixel's release, fans have been having a hard time getting their hands on one. If this seems familiar, it's because another company, aka Nintendo, has been struggling to meet the demand for its popular product, aka NES Classic Edition, earning the ire of many of its fans.

As of now, the Google Store has restocked on the Pixel handsets. The Google Pixel sells for $649 while the Pixel XL is priced $769 for each unit.
