Google is hosting an event on October 4 and while the official programme of the event hasn’t been detailed, it isn’t secret that the search engine giant is going to released quite a few gadgets and details new things that it has had under wraps for quite some time now.
Pixel and Pixel XL are the two smartphones that have been talked about since a few months and until now there have been a few leaks and reports of possible specifications, but the latest leak effectively puts the debate about how the two smartphones will look to and end.
Venture Beat has posted two press renders of the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones before the official event tomorrow and from the looks of it they are good if not great. The home screen of the two new smartphones from Google shows off interface tweaks that are expected in Android 7.0 nougat; however, reports have indicated previously that the interface that we see in the press render will most likely be confined to Pixel smartphones only.
The icons are rounded and this gives the Pixel a refreshed look and makes it look quite different from the Nexus lineup of phones. There is the Google Now launcher as well, but details are yet to emerge. The new press render is also in-line with previously leaked Pixel smartphone image.
In another rumour, the new Pixel smartphone may come in “Very Silver and Quite Black” colour variants, according to Android Police’s David Ruddock.
Based on preliminary leaks, the Google Pixel smartphone, codenamed ‘Sailfish’, is said to feature a 5-inch full-HD display with 440ppi pixel density; a quad-core 64-bit quad-core processor; 4GB of RAM; 32GB storage; 12-megapixel rear camera; 8-megapixel front camera, and a 2770mAh battery. The handset is also expected to sport rear-mounted fingerprint scanner along with the USB Type-C port and bottom speaker. The handset is said to pack a headphone jack and come with Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. The company is also expected to unveiled the Google Pixel XL smartphone, codenamed Marlin.
There is also other bunch of new details about the upcoming Pixel smartphones which are said to come with dust and water resistance rating of IP53 though will lack proper water-resistance. The Pixel smartphone are also expected to be hard to root.
