British retailer puts a lot of info about Google Pixel and Pixel XL online




A British retailer has put the listings online for the Pixel and Pixel XL, the smartphones that search giant Google probably will present Tuesday. They show besides specs and photos also that Google wants to differentiate the phones.

The British retailer shows the slides that Google Pixel and Pixel XL touts. Below are features like a built-in version of Assistant , the Google Now successor who was only found so far in chat app Allo and speaker Google Home. The search giant seems to want to use his digital assistant as distinctive point for Pixel phones. Evoking Assistant is through the creation of “Ok Google” or holding down the Home button.

In addition, owners of the Pixel phones unlimited storage of photos and videos in full size. That is until now Google Photos not possible. Or Google restricts the resolution for unlimited storage, or storage with full resolution is limited to a paid version. With Smart Storage Google Photos must also prevent the storage of your phone becomes full by saving only thumbnails.

Google also claims that the fast charge recharge the phones after a quarter provides enough battery power to call seven. Given the stated claims about battery life would therefore provide a 21 to 27 percent of full charge in a quarter. The Pixel 2770mAH battery is that the Pixel XL 3450mAh.

Both phones have claimed the listing OLED screens, which supports a smaller fullhd resolution and larger QHD. Both run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821-SOC, a memory the size of 4GB. For storage, there is a choice between 32GB and 128GB. The specs mention a slot for microSD cards, but considering the marketing of storage that never gets full and the disgust that Google has shown memory cards in smartphones in recent years seems to be a mistake. The devices run Android 7.1.

The Pixel XL is indeed a larger version of the Pixel: the bezels are in absolute terms almost identical. The phones to keep the top and bottom around about 3.2cm, which is on the sides around 7,2mm. Thus the bezels are almost as large as that of the Nexus 5X and 6P last year.

The listing is now known about the aircraft. Things that are missing from the information provided by the UK retailer, the release date and price. Rumors are that they come very high, up to possibly 699 euros for the cheapest variant. Google maintains Tuesday’s own hardware event, where it will likely show the Pixel phones.
