Google’s Pixel Phone Leaked
27 September, 2016 | Technology
For years, Google has been pushing the Nexus brand but if rumours are to be believed they may be killing off the brand and replacing it with their very own phone called Pixel.
This week, several photos of the Pixel phone have been leaked as well as a Google Pixel render leaked by Evan Blass (image below) which potentially gives us the first glimpse of what we can expect to see at next week’s launch.
The highly anticipated phone has caused a lot of speculation leading up to its release and rumour has it will come in two different sizes.
The Google Pixel handset is expected to come with a 5 inch screen and the Pixel XL will have a 5.5 inch screen.
It is expected to be launched at next week’s event on the 4th October.
Due to the photo leaks, many now think that the 5 inch model will have a 1080pixel display, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2770 mAh battery, a 12MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera.
Whereas the XL Pixel could likely be boosted with the bigger screen a UHD display and a 3450mAh battery.
The other rumours floating round the rumour mill are that the device will have a starting price of around £500 and isn’t likely to be waterproof.
Obviously, we don’t know if the leaks are genuine, however it is still extremely likely that Google will be releasing at least one phone at its October event.
And we know this because the teaser for the event gives a massive hint which is a search bar that transforms into a hollow rectangle shape with curved edges (mysteriously looking like a smartphone).
Not only does it look like they will be announcing a new smartphone at the event, but we can also expect to see a new smartwatch (or watches), possibly a Pixel tablet, Google Home, a 4K Chromecast and a new VR headset!
