Google Pixel event
Google Pixel: After Samsung and Apple have exhausted themselves, it is time for Google to show its open-source software power by launching its own range of smartphones. The Nexus lineup has reached the end of line, and the upcoming smartphones will carry the Pixel branding which is in tune with the search giant’s aim of building products that are more Google. Like the Nexus lineup, these smartphones too will run on the latest Android Nougat, but there will be enough changes to the UI and Google Assistant will be deeply integrated. We already have a good idea about what to expect from the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones courtesy of a huge leak by a UK-based mobile retailer.
Google Pixel XL : Just like the Nexus lineup, this year also consumers will see two new Google smartphones. The Google Pixel will be accompanied by a bigger model, called ‘Pixel XL’ that will feature a larger 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display with 534ppi and Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Under its hood will be a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 quad-core chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. If the speculations are to be believed, the phone will also feature a microSD card slot for memory expansion. While most of the specifications are same, the Pixel XL differs primarily on the display size and the battery which is at 3,450mAh, claimed to last 26 hours of talktime. It will also come with a rear fingerprint sensor and support 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC.
