That’s right, the leaks are starting to get interesting here in Australia with confirmation today that Telstra will be carrying both the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones due to be announced next week.
Our previous leak hinted at only the Pixel XL being stocked by Australia’s largest carrier, however we can now confirm that they will be stocking both the Pixel and Pixel XL. The listing is now showing up in the Telstra system, with options for Quite Black or Very Silver – unfortunately there’s no sign of Really Blue.
Size wise, Telstra will be offering both phones in 32GB and 128GB storage options – at least that is what Telstra’s system is showing. There’s no mention of 64GB options for either phone.
Unfortunately no pricing information has shown up in their system as yet so we’re yet to confirm MRO for either phone. Our previous leak said that Telstra was looking at pushing the Pixel XL on the $95 Go Mobile plan currently includes unlimited standard national calls and text and 8GB of Data.
The plan still seems to be to push the Google phones as premium devices on the Telstra network, so expect a marketing push similar to what we’ve seen with the #MadeByGoogle campaign.
We’re hoping for more information such as pricing to surface as the launch gets closer so stay tuned.
