The Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones have finally launched amidst a crowded time in the mobile phone market. The Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus launched merely a month ago but for Android fans who lived and breathed the Nexus 5 and 6 launches, you’ll be happy to finally welcome the Pixel and Pixel XL into your Andriod family, alongside a slew of other fun Google products like the Google Home and Daydream View.
Worried that it won’t be selling in your country? Don’t worry, just like our Boxers (Personal Shoppers) in the US, Australia, UK and Japan have helped avid Android fans with purchasing their Nexus 5 and 6s in the previous years, they’re ready again this year to help with ShopandBoxing these and ANYTHING else you want to your doorstep.
Here’s a quick lowdown on the specs of Google’s latest beauty:
Size/Display: There are 2 sizes. The Pixel has a 5 inch screen while the Pixel XL boasts a 5.5 inch screen. This year’s models are both made by HTC and both models have 2 options – 32GB and 128GB.
Colours: Google have gone straight to the point with their colour naming convention (someone please lend them a Pantone chart) – Quite Black, Very Silver, Really Blue
Operating System: This year’s launch sees the phones using the Android 7.1 with Google UI.
Camera: The camera specifications are the same for both the Pixel and the Pixel XL. with rear camera specs at 12MP f/2.0. Check-out Tech Radar’s in-depth review of the camera. One thing to note, this phone has VR capabilities (they’re daydream ready) so early adopters of the whole VR scene are likely to enjoy this feature.
BONUS GIFT: If you purchase a Pixel right now, you get the opportunity to redeem a free Daydream View VR Set. Note that this is only while stocks last and you’ll only be able to redeem it 4-weeks post shipment of your Google Pixel set.
Differences between the Google Pixel and Pixel XL:
Price: We’ve done the comparisons below and it looks like the US has once again come out tops when it comes to getting these cheapest.
Specifications: The main difference would lie in the screen size (5 inch versus 5.5 inches) and the battery life. Get more information on Android Central.
