Here it is! The photo above shows off the final design of the Google Pixel which is the smaller version of the Pixel XL. This is one of the phones that will be introduced to the world on October 4th. We know the image is legit as it comes from Evan Blass a well known technology leaker who has been deadly accurate in the past. The image shows a device very similar in form factor to the iPhone or HTC's One A9. There is plenty of bezel above and below the display. The chin of the device is not my favorite. It doesn't even house a home button. We can also see from the image there won't be two front facing speakers like we saw with the Nexus 6p. HTC may still incorporate the earpiece as a second speaker.
Known specs for the Pixel include a 5" 1080p display, Snapdragon 821 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 2770mah battery, 12mp camera, USB Type-C and Android Nougat. Apparently if you want to purchase the Pixel from a carrier you will need to do purchase the phone from Verizon. There will also be an unlocked model available on the Play Store which will work with GSM carriers. The phone is said to start out at $650. I will probably skip the Pixel and go with the Pixel XL. How about you?
