Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL have safely moved from rumour territory into confirmed product, with listings appearing locally on Telstra, and internationally on Canadian Bell and now Carphone Warehouse. These aren’t just leaked pages on CW, they’re actual product listings, and they’re live right now.
Shown above is a stock photo of the Very Silver edition of the phones (though it isn’t clear which it is, it appears on both listings), and other photos on the listings confirm other details we already know about the new Google phones, including:
- Unlimited free photo backups at maximum resolution
- All and Duo will be built in
- Quick charging over USB Type-C
- Google Assistant
- Live Cases
Other details known and now confirmed include both devices running a Snapdragon 821 CPU at 2.15 GHz, 4GB of RAM, and 32 or 128GB of storage (there doesn’t seem to be a 64GB option this year). Both Pixel and Pixel XL will feature AMOLED displays with super-tough Gorilla Glass 4, and a screen resolution of 1080 on the smaller Pixel, and 1440p on the Pixel XL.
Battery size we also know a bit about; 2770 mAh for the Pixel, and 3450 mAh in the Pixel XL. Of course both phones will run Android 7.1 Nougat with rear-mounted fingerprint sensors and cameras — 8MP for the front and 12MP for the rear.
