Yesterday we reported a leak press render of one of Google’s upcoming phone, the Pixel. It’s bigger brother, the Pixel XL doesn’t get left out as its own press render has leaked too. Both phones are expected to launch next week on the 4th of October.
The render for the Pixel XL isn’t any different from that of the smaller sized Pixel, and based on insiders, Google’s act is intentional. Both phones are expected to feature similar internals and just be a little different on the outside just like Apple did with the new iPhones.
The render shows the phone running Google’s new launcher called Pixel Launcher which uses round icons (which I don’t like) and filled out on-screen navigation buttons (ugly as well).
The Pixel XL has been reported to sport a 5.5-inches AMOLED Quad HD display, a snapdragon 821 chip, a 12MP primary camera whose pictures were leaked recently, and an 8MP front facing shooter. The phone will also have a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a fingerprint scanner. There will be a 3450mAh battery inside which should support Quick Charge 3.0. The phone is expected to launch with Android 7.1 Nougat.
There is no info on the price of the Pixel XL,but if the rumour that the Pixel starts at $649 for the 32GB version is true, then the Pixel XL will sell for a much higher price.
