Lost of Pixel related news today! Before being officially announced by Google for October 4th, the new Pixel Phones also made headlines today in three separate leak incidents. The first one gives us a detailed look at the front and the back of the white/silver version of both models. As you can see in the pictures below, the rear panel is indeed split into two parts like predicted. The upper side probably consists of glass, whereas the lower part will most likely be made of some kind of metal. You can also see the big fingerprint sensor in the middle.
The front shows that the Pixel phones will not be bezel-less. Similar to the Apple iPhones, a lot of space is lost over bezels on each side. The boot animation will apparently consist of the iconic Google dots. Another leak also shows the silver/white version of the two Pixel phones: Apparently a video promoting Nest sensors was released a bit too early in the Netherlands, showing what looks like the new Pixel Phone for a brief moment of time. We added the video below for you to judge for yourself.
Last but not least, Android Police was notified about possible pricing for the new Google Phones. Apparently, according to the source that Android Police calls trustworthy, the smaller 5 inch model might start at $649, that is for the 32 GB version. If this is true, Android Police gives it a 6 out of 10, the Pixel XL and larger storage versions will be even more expensive. However pricing can be subject to a late change so let's wait and see what Google will tell us on October 4th. Google is also expected to officially unveil a Daydream VR-headset, a 4K Chromecast and Google Home on that date.
