It is almost impossible to keep a smartphone secret before its official unveiling date these days and as it turns out, the new Pixel phones from Google are no exceptions either. Multiple retailers have leaked all details about the Google Pixel smartphones, ahead of its unveiling tomorrow. For example, Carphone Warehouse is a British retailer which had put up listings for the two phones for a very short time, before removing it. Whether it was an intentional marketing strategy or just a mistake, we are not really sure! Nevertheless, here is what the listings confirm for us about the Pixel and Pixel XL. Do check the pictures also for some more insight into Google's plans for tomorrow.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are all set to launch around the world in October, but thanks to VentureBeat, what we have for you today are alleged renders of the two smartphones, ahead of time. What you see above is the smaller Pixel, with 5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (2GHz clock speed) processor, 32GB of internal storage and a 2,770mAh battery to power it all. There will also be a 12-megapixel rear snapper, an 8-megapixel selfie cam, USB Type-C, fingerprint scanner at the back and maybe even a 3.5mm headphone jack if we are lucky!



The Pixel XL pictured above will almost be identical to its smaller brother, except a bigger, better display and battery. The display on it will supposedly sport a 1440p Quad High Definition panel stretched over 5.5-inches. The battery is also significantly bigger at 3,450mAh in order to power that large QHD display. The two smartphones from Google are rumoured to be more expensive than any of the previous smartphones from the brand with a price tag that starts at $649. Both smartphones are being manufactured by HTC, under the Google Pixel branding.

Allo was announced earlier in 2016 at the Google I/O and the new messaging app is finally becoming available to Android and iOS devices around the world. If you are not aware about what makes Allo special in a world that's filled with messaging apps from different developers, let us enlighten you. Allo will work in perfect coordination with the new Google Assistant. In other words, Google Assistant is embedded as a part of the new messenger, which will allow users to reply to conversations based on the suggestions by the Google Assistant and perform in-app searches through both your personal data on the phone and also the internet.


Google Assistant is said to take digital assistance to another level through direct interactions with the evolving AI incorporated into the program. It will take the experience you had from Google Now and raise it up by quite a few notches. Now that Allo is finally here, we will learn about new ways to utilize the digital assistant. Keep in mind though, Allo is strictly limited to mobile devices only for now and won't be available on desktops for a while. Download it and give it a try now, it's free!

Google has now confirmed that the new Pixel phones will be unveiled at a press event on October 4. What it means is that we do not have any official photos of the two upcoming flagships from Google yet, but unofficial leaks are there before time as usual. The white Pixel and Pixel XL phones that we see here show a metal unibody design at the bottom with the antenna panel, but glass plating takes precedence on top. As it is actually designed by HTC, one cannot help but be reminded of the HTC One A9 that we saw last year.



In case you are wondering, Pixel is the new name adopted by Google this year for their upcoming phones, ditching the Nexus tag for now at least. Also, if you have missed a few updates recently, the Pixel with a 5-inch display is codenamed Marlin and the Pixel XL with a 5.5-inch display is codenamed Sailfish. The two smartphones will probably be powered by the same SD 820 processor and 4GB RAM. Interestingly, the Pixels will also bring Android Nougat version 7.1 with them.
