With 5-inch and 5.5-inch AMOLED displays, both handsets use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and are expected to be officially unveiled tomorrow.
Codrut Nistor,

The first two Pixel handsets by Google should be unveiled today, but two pages listing what appeared to be their specs and official images were recently spotted online. Since both have been taken down quite fast, it looks like the images and specs uncovered are the real thing.

The pages unleashed online and then removed by UK-based retailer Carphone Warehouse mentioned a microSD slot for both handsets, but this might be an error. The remaining specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB or 128 GB internal storage, as well as AMOLED displays protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. These are the few differences revealed so far:

  • Google Pixel - 5-inch 1080p, 2,770 mAh
  • Google Pixel XL - 5.5-inch 1440p, 3,450 mAh

The list of common features also includes USB Type-C and NFC connectivity, 8 MP/12 MP cameras, and Android 7.1 Nougat. We should have all the details on specs, pricing, and availability tomorrow, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
