Leaked Images Reveal Google 'Pixel' Smartphones Ahead of October 4th Event

U.K. mobile retailer Carphone Warehouse was today guilty of publishing a series of visuals and spec slides for Google's upcoming own-branded smartphones, a day ahead of their official unveiling (via 9to5Google).

Due to be announced at the company's October 4th San Francisco event, Google's 5-inch 'Pixel' and 5.5-inch 'Pixel XL' smartphones feature Snapdragon 821 processors and 4GB RAM, a 2770mAh battery for the Pixel and a 3450mAh battery for the Pixel XL, and screen resolutions of 1080x1920 and 1440x2560, respectively.

Both similar-looking handsets are available in black or white, and come with a choice of 32GB and 128GB storage capacities with the addition of a microSD slot for storage expansion, as well as what appears to be a headphone jack on the top and a USB-C port on the bottom. A 12-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a circular fingerprint scanner on the rear also feature.

The pulled slides from the U.K. retailer's website also show off a number of Google software services on the Android Nougat 7.1 powered devices, including free photo storage via Google Photos, and the company's Duo video chat and Allo messaging apps, not to mention a quick charge feature that claims seven hours' battery life after 15 minutes of charging.

The two smartphones signal the company's first foray into own-branded phones in the manner of Apple and Samsung, and will allow it to have more control over the hardware running its Android OS.

Google is said to be relying on HTC to manufacture the devices, which will be unveiled tomorrow along with a number of other expected hardware announcements, including the company's Amazon Alexa competitor, Google Home, a Daydream VR headset, 4K Chromecast 'Ultra', plus a successor to its OnHub wireless router.

Even the wallpaper blatantly copies iOS 10's



Also the phone looks like a sorry Chinese knock-off, but maybe that's just me? :rolleyes:

A rectangular device with rounded edges and stereo bottom-firing speakers? It's an iPhone - knockoff, just look at the design!!!

Wait. . . Super Cheap internal storage extension capabilities? A headphone - jack? Unlimited cloud storage for pictures? Well... This doesn't sound like Apple after all.

Why is the screen not further down the phone?

The iPhone doesn't due to the home button, so what's your excuse Google?
