Google Pixel shows up in new leaked image


If you want to go into Google’s upcoming Oct. 4 event with some of the mystery still intact, today’s leak will spoil it for you. Venture Beat, corroborating numerous reports about Google’s rumored Pixel smartphones, leaked is allegedly a render of the device, Pixel Launcher and all.

While the render doesn’t reveal much, we do get confirmation that Google is ditching the Nexus Launcher for something new, rumored to be the Pixel Launcher. Some new things to expect from the launcher includes the date widget up top alongside the “G” pull-tab, which accesses a search box, and new rounded icons.

The app drawer is also accessible by pulling up on the arrow, rather than by pressing an onscreen button. The navigation buttons also look a tad different, corroborating a previous report.

Android Police previously reported Google’s smaller Pixel device would feature a 5-inch Full HD screen, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 2,770mAh battery, 12-megapixel camera, and a USB-C port. A fingerprint sensor is also expected on the rear of the device, along with a small glass panel that will apparently support gestures.

By the way, the device you see above is rumored to cost $649, making it the most expensive entry-level Nexus device we’ve ever seen. We’ll know more at Google’s event next week.
