UPDATED: The Google Pixel Shows Up For Order On Bell Canada Website

While Google's October 4th event is still a couple of days away, set to happen this Tuesday morning, it would appear that the leaks surrounding the Pixel, one half of the smartphone pair that is due for an announcement soon, are not yet finished. While there has been much speculation of whether or not any carriers would be selling the Pixel and Pixel XL, it would seem that a confirmation has unofficially surfaced as the Bell Canada website appears to have the landing page setup for customers to buy the Pixel, the smaller of the two phones. There is no way to actually order the phone through Bell just yet, and the page does not list the price point for the phone, but this does seem to confirm that it will be sold through more than just the Google Store.

Previous rumors have mentioned that the Pixel and Pixel XL would be sold through carriers like Sprint and Verizon here in the US, although there was nothing really to suggest that these rumors were more potentially true than not. Following what seems to be the order page for the Pixel on Bell's site today, it begins to look more likely that Google will be working with carriers to sell both of these devices, although there is no official confirmation that they will be sold through carriers in the US. Having said that, it wouldn't make sense for Google to push the Pixel and Pixel XL through carrier stores in some parts of North America (like Canada) and not in others.

The image of the Pixel on the Bell website shows just what everyone has likely already been expecting for weeks now, that the design of the leaked handset images is exactly what Google will unveil in just a couple of days. The image also seems to be of the steel color of the device which allegedly leaked in real life images a couple of weeks back that comes with the white front glass panel. Other details can be made out as well, like the presence of the new Pixel launcher, as well as the front-facing camera, audio earpiece up top, and a sensor of some kind just under the earpiece. The last thing worth mentioning here is that Bell's landing page for the Pixel states that customers can "order theirs today," which suggests that this was meant to go live on October 4th, and that Google may be planning either pre-orders or actual purchases of the devices to be made the day of the announcement.

Update: Bell Canada's website now also seems to have the order page listed for the Pixel XL as well, although it's shown off in a Black color variant instead of the White like with the Pixel shown above. There are also a couple of images of the devices that are more high-resolution for better detail.
