Google Pixel XL Surfaces In 3D Render & Unconventional Dimensions


Only a couple of days are left until Google launches the Pixel and Pixel XL. This year's smartphones from the company will mark an end to the Nexus lineup. Google's smartphone lineup prior to 2016 came with stock Android on board. It became popular with a lot of users who preferred no bloatware and cost easy devices. Recent years started to mark a shift in Google's approach on the Nexus lineup. The Nexus 6P in particular targeted high end devices. Now, with the Pixel and Pixel XL, Google's looking to solidify the approach.

Google Pixel Leaks In 360 Render Alongside Complete Dimensions As We Head Towards Its Launch

With only three days left until the Pixel and Pixel Xl are launched by Google, we've gathered quite a lot of information for the devices. In terms of design, they're expected to be completely identical. This is said to stand in line with Google's strategy of combating Apple, as the Cupertino manufacturer also does not differentiate between the iPhones in terms of design. The Google Pixel will have a screen size of 5 inches while the Pixel XL will have a screen of 5.5 inches.

The latest leaks for the Google Pixel XL now suggest that the device will also feature a metal frame. We've heard about an unorthodox design where the fingerprint sensor for the device will be surrounded by glass. Today's leaks further confirm this and provide more details for the Pixel XL. Take a look at the device's first 3D render below, courtesy of famed French leaker, Onleaks.

The Pixel XL appears to have a seamless design if we're to take this video as authentic. The metal frame blends in rather seamlessly with the device. In addition to the 360 render, Onleaks has also posted some dimensions for the Pixel XL. It'll come with some rather unorthodox measurements as well. According to today's information, the Pixel XL will measure 154.72 x 75.74 x 7.3 mm on the bottom. On the top, its width will increase to 8.5mm.

Google's Pixel and Pixel XL will be launched in just three days by the company. To recap, the pair are expected to feature the Snapdragon 821 (or 820), 4GB of RAM, 12MP rear camera, USB Type C and Bluetooth 4.1. Both will be identical aesthetically, and the only difference between them will be screen resolution and size. Starting storage for the pair is expected to stand at 32GB, with the Pixel to come with a price tag of $649. Thoughts?
