Google has unveiled two new flagship phones dumping the Nexus in favour of the Pixel. Just like Apple, Google controlled both the software and hardware and in this case Android Nougat 7.0. Here’s all you need to know about Google’s new iPhone 7 competitors:
UK Release date:
According to Google, the phones’ pre-order started on 4th October in the UK and it will be available in shops from 20th October.
The Pixel is quite similar to the iPhone 6 albeit it comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Both the Pixel and the Pixel XL feature USB-C charging port and are having 4GB of RAM. Both phones boast a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera.
The internal storage might be either 32GB or 128GB; however, the Pixel users will be having unlimited storage for images and videos via Google Photos app.
Unlike Apple’s iPhone 7, Google has kept the 3.5mm headphone jack in place.
Both the Pixel and the Pixel XL featuring an edge-to-edge display and the same design like previous year’s Nexus 6P.
Both Pixel phones are already powered by Android Nougat 7.0 and also are coming with pre-installed Google’s FaceTime-style app Duo and AI-powered assistant Allo.
The live cases of Google can be customised with your preferred images and places, and also unique designs from photographers like Chris Hadfield, Canadian astronaut, and artists like Justin Maller.
The Pixel XL features a 5.5-inch screen with a 2,560 x 1,440 AMOLED display along with a Quad-core Qualcomm processor. It is also backed by a 3,450mAh battery.
The smaller 5-inch Pixel sports full HD AMOLED display along with a smaller 2,770mAh battery, and Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor.
Google’s new flagship phones are a good alternative to Apple’s iPhone 7. So, if you want to use something good from Android, then you can definitely opt for either Pixel or the Pixel XL.
