Google officially teases Pixel Phones for October 4th
We have heard about them for months now but today Google made them official. The next generation Google Phones, that will be called Pixel Phones instead of Nexus Phones this year, will be unveiled during an event on October 4th. Google started teasing the phones today by releasing a video on Youtube, creating a hashtag on Twitter and launching a new website. The promotion video on youtube was first aired during the season premiere of "The Big Bang Theory", surely attracting lots of attention from viewers in the process.
Both the madeby.google.com website and the #madebygoogle hashtag suggest, that Google actually made those Phones, however, as we know, they were manufactured by HTC instead. Google Pixel and Pixel XL will differ only in screen size, resolution and battery size. The 5 inch model is supposed to feature Full-HD resolution whereas the 5.5 inch model will boost resolution to QHD. The smaller model will pack a 2770 mAh battery, the Pixel XL will most likely top that with a 3500 mAh battery. Both phones are rumored to come with a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM and will start with 32 GB of storage. Models with larger on board storage will most likely be available as well. As for pricing, there are rumors that they might not come cheap.
