Alleged press shots of the Google Pixel XL was leaked shortly after its sibling Pixel was revealed in renders. As we know, there will be a major Google event come October 4 in San Francisco and many gadgets are in line to be revealed.
The leaked images reveal the user interface as it will be using the new Pixel Launcher. It seems as though Google made the app icons circular, and the on-screen navigation buttons look slightly redesigned to have a more minimalist look.
In spite of the fact that there is no confirmation yet, the new home screen is thought to be exclusively available on the Pixel and Pixel XL, so it won’t be available to other smartphone running Android 7.1 Nougat.
Google is trying to maximise the new software usability coupled with its own voice-activated assistant. As there would be no Nexus line to test the UI the Pixel seems to be a perfect replacement.
Based on the specs, the Pixel XL is the larger smartphone and will be sporting a 5.5” QHD display, under its hood is a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 1.59 GHz coupled with a 4GB RAM + 32GB supported by an expandable storage of up to 128GB.
In terms of camera, it is speculated to carry a 12MP at the rear with an 8MP front-facing shooter. The battery capacity is 3450mAh which is large as well.
The difference between both devices is not much, as the Pixel Sailfish features a lesser screen of 5” display and a modest battery size of the 2770mAh battery.
Another feature for both devices is fingerprint scanner and pre-installed Android OS which comes with amazing characteristics and its standout option is the seamless software update.
