We heard a lot about this year's Google Pixel phones already. First they were rumored to come out as this year's Nexus devices. They were said to be made by HTC and codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. However a few weeks back, Google announced their #MadebyGoogle initiative so now we know that Google will release them as their own creation on October 4th and is not being quiet about it. A few weeks ago, we saw the first 360 degree video of the smaller Pixel Phone, now the second, larger Pixel XL is getting the same treatment.
Yesterday, OnLeaks has released the 360 degree video, a picture and exact measurements of the Pixel XL via Twitter. According to this information the Pixel XL will measure 154.72 x 75.74 x 7.3 to 8.5 mm. The bottom will be approximately 1 mm thicker than the top of the device. As you can see, the back is split into two parts, the upper third will most likely be made of glass, the lower part should be made of metal. The antenna bands are visible near the bottom of the device. Google will announce the Pixel phone family on October 4th.
