After months of rumors and leaks, Google has finally unveiled two new smartphones. Now, this time around we're not looking at Nexus devices, as Google has decided to change the naming of its smartphone lineup, the company has introduced two Pixel devices instead, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. These two smartphones are direct successors to the Nexus 5X and 6P smartphones, and we're here to continue covering their announcement. Having that in mind, let's take a closer look at Google Pixel's battery and its features, shall we.

Now, the Google Pixel is a 5-inch smartphone, and it comes with a Full HD (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display. This is not exactly the sharpest display out there, but it's plenty sharp for pretty much everyone, and the best of all, it doesn't exactly waste as much energy as a QHD panel does, as it has far less pixels to push. Google and HTC have included a 2,770mAh battery in this smartphone, and this battery pack is not removable. Now, in theory, this battery should be enough to keep the Google Pixel juiced up throughout the day, though we'll need to test it out in order to see for our ourselves how the battery fares in a day-to-day use. Now, some of you are probably wondering whether the Google Pixel supports fast charging, well, it does, Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging, which is great to hear, of course. You'll charge this smartphone's battery pack using the Type-C USB port on the bottom, as the phone does not offer wireless charging at all, let alone fast wireless charging.

The Google Pixel comes with a 5-inch FullHD display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB /128GB of expandable internal storage (up to 256GB via a microSD card). This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. The device comes with a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera, while you'll find an 8-megapixel snapper on its front side. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back of this phone, and the device offers 4G LTE connectivity, of course. Android 7.1 Nougat comes pre-installed on the Google Pixel, and this is, alongside the Google Pixel XL, the first smartphone to sport Android 7.1 Nougat.
