Leaked image reportedly shows Google’s forthcoming Pixel XL handset


Following the leaked image of Google’s reportedly forthcoming HTC-made Pixel device by VentureBeat, the publication has released a render of its larger sibling, the Pixel XL. The image essentially just reveals a larger version of the Pixel that was previously pictured, with the only difference being the gradient wallpaper.

Both images reveal a minimal black device with no physical front-facing buttons and what appears to be Android 7.1 — much of which has been leaked by Android Police — including new circular launcher icons. Below is the original Pixel render.

The devices will debut at Google’s October 4th event, according to VentureBeat writer and eminent mobile tipster Evan Blass. A slew of other devices are also expected to launch, including a new home Wi-Fi router and 4K-enabled Chromecast.

The Pixel is widely rumoured to feature a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2770mAh battery, a 12-megapixel rear camera and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Its big sibling is expected to share many of the same specs, but feature a 5.5-inch display, 3,450mAh battery and more powerful processor.

Rumours are also circulating that both will be more expensive than would previously have been in keeping with the Nexus brand, potentially starting at $649 for the Pixel.
