Google has an event planned for October 4 and while there are a number of products expected to be unveiled at the event, it does seem to be the case that the headline act will be the unveiling and introduction of two new smartphones. These are largely understood to be the Pixel and the Pixel XL. Both smartphones are expected to be quite similar in design although they will sport some differences, namely in regards to the build quality, display, battery capacity and size.
Although there has been quite a few leaks coming through over the last few weeks on the Pixel and the Pixel XL, yesterday an image was published by way of @evleaks and VentureBeat which showed a very clear view of the front of the Pixel. Following that image and today sees another image now coming through. Although, this one looks to show off the front of what is largely considered to be the superior of the two devices, the Pixel XL.
As mentioned, the differences between these two smartphones are thought to be relatively small in the grand scheme of things. Which does seem to ring true when you compare the latest Pixel XL image (above) to that of the Pixel image which came through yesterday (below). It is expected that the Pixel XL will be larger and come sporting a 5.5-inch QHD display compared to the 5-inch 1080p display on the Pixel. Likewise, it is expected that the Pixel XL will make use of a more premium build and a larger capacity battery (3,450 mAh compared to 2,770 mAh on the Pixel). The rest of the specs are largely thought to be common to both smartphones and are expected to include 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (maybe a larger storage variant as well), a 64-bit quad-core processor. As well as a 12-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, USB Type-C connectivity, a rear-positioned fingerprint sensor and of course, Android 7.1 (Nougat).
Of course, with the event essentially only a week away now, it is only a matter of time before all the details surrounding the Pixel, the Pixel XL and all of the other rumored products that Google is reportedly set to unveil, will become clear. In the meantime though, you can once again check out the latest Pixel and Pixel XL images that have now come through.
