Google: Pixel-Nexus size comparison & Google statues in Australia

Australia gets to see the Google Pixel Phones one day later due to the time difference.
Australia gets to see the Google Pixel Phones one day later due to the time difference.
Now that we have renders of the two Pixel phones, a size comparison with their predecessors makes sense. Meanwhile Google is busy putting up statues of their MadebyGoogle initiative all over the globe, people in Australia see a different date though.

Google is busy putting up statues reminding people that a new phone #MadebyGoogle is coming on October 4th. However in Australia, the statues show a slightly different date, due to time differences. Google placed these statues on popular places all around Australia, for instance you can find one in front of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge or directly on Bondi Beach. Melbourne also got one. We already showed you pictures of Google's marketing efforts in New York City a few days ago, same thing happens all over the globe. Google really wants you to know that the Pixel Phones are made by Google and not HTC.

Since we now have high quality render pictures and know the exact sizes of the two new Pixel phones, it makes sense to put them next to their predecessors, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P and compare them to scale. Android Central did just that, as you see in the picture below. It is interesting to note that the Pixel XL with its 5.5 inch screen is not much bigger than the Nexus 5X with its much smaller 5.2 inch display. Both Pixel Phones are smaller than the Nexus smartphones of last year. Google will officially unveil both smartphones on October 4th, together with a bunch of other hardware. They might also give us a preview of a new Android based OS called Andromeda.
