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.

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.

As far as the pictures are concerned, you will find them all throughout the article, but unfortunately, none of this latest batch of leaked Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL pictures shows the fronts of the two smartphones. Other than the images, we also have information on the color options (as can be seen in the pictures) and even the price.



It looks like the Pixel 2 will come in three color options, which have been comically named by Google as Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White. The color options for the Google Pixel 2 XL on the other hand won't be so vast and the buyers will have to choose in between Black & White and Just Black. Funny as the names may be, they do a pretty good job of describing exactly how the colors look to be honest! You will find the pricing details mentioned below.


Pixel 2 (HTC)

$649 for 64GB/$749 for 128GB


Pixel 2 XL (LG)

$849 for 64GB/$949 for 128GB


The pictures and the information are presented by DroidLife and they do seem to be pretty authentic.
