British smartphone retailer Carphone Warehouse has listed the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones on its website, revealing their key features and specifications. In addition to the Carphone Warehouse listings, more official renders of the upcoming smartphones have been leaked online courtesy of Canadian carriers Telus and Bell.
The smaller Pixel is going to feature a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution display and is going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core chipset clocked at 2.15 GHz. In terms of memory, the smartphone will offer 4GB of RAM, and surprisingly, a microSD card slot to help expand storage further by up to 256GB. The exact internal storage hasn’t been mentioned though. In the camera department, the smartphone will offer a 12MP camera at the back and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. As rumored, the Pixel is going to sport a 2770mAh capacity battery inside and will run on the Android 7.1 Nougat operating system. As for dimensions, the Pixel reportedly measures 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.6mm and weighs in at 143 grams.
The Google Pixel XL on the other hand is going to sport a larger 5.5-inch display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution. In pretty much all areas, the Pixel XL is identical to the Pixel as far as the specs go. However, it does pack a larger 3450mAh capacity battery inside, which should give it better battery life than the Google Pixel. The smartphone will measure 154.7 x 75.7 x 8.6mm and weigh in at 168 grams. Both smartphones will also include a USB Type-C charger that is claimed to deliver up to 7 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes.
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are going to be made official tomorrow, i.e. October 4th.
