As happens every year, the closer we get to Nexus announcement time the leakier the Nexus and Google boat becomes. One might even go as far as to suspect that these leaks may in fact be a deliberate ploy to whet our pure Google Android appetite. This year, with Google apparently renaming the Nexus phones as Pixel phones, is no different.
This year we have already seen rumoured specs and a render appear (along with many other minor details). Now with the new Pixel phones from Google set to be announced very soon (on October 4 and on sale on October 20) some major leaks have appeared. Android Authority have gotten their hands on some very official looking renders and a 360 degree video of the HTC-made Pixel Sailfish:
As seen in the video the Google Pixel, dubbed the Sailfish, will continue what Google started last year with the Nexus phones and continue to support USB Type-C and will have speakers situated either side of the USB port on the bottom of the device, as we reported a few months ago. Android Authority were also able to confirm that the phone’s dimensions are 143.8 mm x 69.5 mm x 7.3 mm at the bottom while it is thickest at the top at 8.5 mm. There IS also a headphone jack along the top edge of the device unlike some other recently announced phones.
With Sailfish Pixel phone rumoured to arrive with a 5″ 1080p display, 4GB RAM, and up to 32GB of storage it promises to be a great mid range phone. I for one know what my next phone will be. Anyone else like the look of this?
