Take a look below to find out more.
Google Pixel And Pixel XL Completely Listed By Retailer Showing Detailed Specifications
The Pixel and Pixel XL won’t fall in line with Google’s previous Nexus launches. Word on the street is that Mountain View will take a much stronger approach this year. The pair will be stand out devices on their own, aimed at tackling Apple and Samsung in the flagship smartphone sphere. To that end, the Pixel and Pixel XL will be heavy handed in terms of specifications. Today’s leak confirms what we’ve been telling you previously.
Starting from the 5 inch Pixel, the device is listed with the Snapdragon 821 and 4GB RAM. Rear camera for the device stands at 12MP for the primary and 8MP for the front camera. Specifications for the Snapdragon 821 include a 2.15GHz CPU and the Adreno 530. Screen resolution for the Google Pixel is at 1080 x 1920, with a 2770 mAh battery pack powering the device. Storage options for the device are 32GB and 128GB.
The Pixel XL also features similar specifications. The Snapdragon 821, 4GB RAM, 12MP rear and 8MP front shooter are all present for the device. The 5.5 inch screen will feature an AMOLED display with 1440×2560 resolution. The device will also be powered by a much larger 3490 mAh battery. You can take a good look at both the Pixel and Pixel XL in the images above. As is the case with most leaks, the rumor mill was on point once again this time.
Price points for the Pixel devices aren’t that good looking though. The 32GB variant for the smaller device is set at $649 by the rumor mill. This won’t be easy for a lot of users, and we’re hoping Google’s rumored financing options are also equally impressive. The Pixel and Pixel XL will set the pace for the company’s future smartphone launches, given this year’s massive re-branding. Thoughts?
