The two available Pixel smartphones have been extensively leaked by Carphone Warehouse this weekend so as it stands there might not be much to talk about this afternoon…
According to the leaked site, Google will be launching two sizes: the 5-inch Pixel and the 5.5-inch Pixel XL.
This adds more weight to the argument that Google will be dropping the Nexus branding in favour of its own Pixel brand.
The phones, marketed as being “made by Google” have been leaked will the following impressive specifications:
- A new Snapdragon 821 processor
- 4 GB of RAM
- A USB-C port
- A 32 GB or 128 GB of internal storage
- A 8-megapixel camera on the front
- 12-megapixel camera on the back
- 7 Hours worth of charge in just 15 minutes
The smaller Pixel is said to have a 1080p OLED display and a 2,770 mAH battery, while the Pixel XL is said to have a 1440 x 2560 OLED display and a bigger 3,450 mAH battery.
The leak also dictates support for Google’s digital assistant, unlimited photo storage with Google Photos, and the already unveiled Allo and Duo chat apps.
All of the above is just speculative, we’ll find out later as to what transpires.
