Google Pixel XL Press Render Leaked; Looks Exactly Like Google Pixel
Highlights
  • The leaked image shows new solid filled icons and home button
  • Rest of the interface looks similar to Pixel, the smaller one
  • Pixel XL and Pixel will be launched on October 4

Google is anticipated to launch two smartphones at its October 4 event - the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. On Monday, a leaked image of Google's Pixel smartphone made its way to the Internet, suggesting a bunch of details about its looks and UI. Now, a new image has been leaked online, and surprise surprise, it looks exactly the same.

In an updated post, VentureBeat has a render of what it claims to be the Pixel XL - the bigger smartphone to be launched by Google. In an attempt to give its smartphones a facelift, Google has finally done away with the Nexus branding and is launching the smartphones under its own brand. The leaked image shows the new Pixel XL to have a home screen just like that of its new Pixel Launcher to give a fresh look to its new range of smartphones. The new icons are now solid filled instead of plain borders at the bottom. The image also shows a gradient wallpaper, unlike the blue-coloured one on the earlier leaked image of the Pixel.

Home screen now has onscreen buttons alongside other interface changes. One of the most visible changes in the new user interface is the rounded app icons. The new UI and rounded icons are speculated to be exclusive on Pixel and Pixel XL, as per the report and may not be seen on other Google smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat. Rest of the features and looks go identical with the Pixel smartphone

Google is also said to enhance the UI of the smartphones to match up with the likes of Apple's 3D Touch technology, without additional hardware requirements. Talking about the specifications, another report from AndroidPolice suggests that the Pixel XL, codenamed Marlin, will sport a 5.5-inch QHD display, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of inbuilt storage, a 3450mAh battery, a 12MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera. The report also said that the smartphone will contain a headphone jack on the top, a fingerprint scanner on the rear, and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

As we mentioned, Google is quite in a form to showcase multiple products at its October 4 event. Apart from the Pixel phones, it is expected to unveil the Android-Chrome OS merger Google Andromeda, apart from Google Wifi router, the Chromecast Ultra, and the Google Home assistant.
