Here’s everything you need to know about the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL

Google Pixel - Official

The Google Pixel was made official yesterday by the company amidst much hype and speculation. In fact, one can say that the Pixel and the Pixel XL were the worst kept secrets by Google given how public their features had become prior to the release. But were you a little late to the party? Well, here’s everything you need to know about the two phones. Let’s start with the Pixel.

Google Pixel hardware specifications:

  • 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display
  • Quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC
  • 12.3-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32/128GB storage (expandable)
  • Android 7.1 Nougat
  • 2,770 mAh battery
  • Fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port

Google Pixel XL hardware specifications:

  • 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display
  • Quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC
  • 12.3-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32/128GB storage (expandable)
  • Android 7.1 Nougat
  • 3,450 mAh battery
  • Fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port

The handsets will be sold in “Quite Black”, “Very Silver” and “Really Blue” color variants. Interesting choice of color names, Google! What’s also interesting is that the new Pixel phones will work with all four major carriers in the U.S., making it accessible to a large chunk of the American population. The “Really Blue” color variant is seemingly exclusive to the U.S. market, so there’s something special for the American customers of the new phones.

Along with the two new Pixel phones, Google also released the new Daydream View virtual-reality headset, which will be offered for free with initial pre-orders of the two handsets. Speaking of pre-orders, the two new Google phones can be pre-ordered through the Google Store right away.

The 32GB Google Pixel can be yours for $649 or $27.04 per month using Google’s monthly financing option. The 128GB model will set you back by $749 or $31.21 per month.

The Pixel XL will set you back by $769 or $32.04/month and $869 or $36.21/month for the 32 and 128GB models respectively. Unfortunately, Google is not offering the Really Blue version of the Pixel or Pixel XL in the 128GB storage configuration at the moment, but we expect that to change fairly soon.
