We know that Google is planning to release two new smartphones this year and we’re pretty confident they’ll be called Pixel and Pixel XL. What we don’t know is what they’ll look like. Until now.
Or at least, we now have an idea what the larger Pixel XL smartphone will look like thanks to a render from Reddit user bndki, which has been picked up by Phone Arena. Bndki has taken a blurry photo, which also leaked online a few days ago, purporting to be the Pixel XL and turned it into a render to give us a better idea of what to expect come launch day.
The render doesn’t give too much away, other than that the Pixel XL will be a black rectangle shape, like most other phones, but there does appear to be very thin bezels, which is always nice.
Both the Pixel and Pixel XL are expected to be made by HTC and should be unveiled on October 4th at Google’s I/O event on October 4th. Specs are said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor 5.5in 2560 x 1440 AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB/128GB of internal storage. The rear camera should come in at 12-megapixels while the front will be 8MP and the battery should be a 3540mAh unit with USB Type-C charging.
