Google Pixel specifications spilled by smartphone retailer

Everything you wanted to know about the upcoming Google Pixel phones has been leaked by a U.K. retailer ahead of Google’s grand unveiling on Tuesday. We now know exactly what kind of specifications both handsets will be packing.

As expected, the Pixel will be available in two sizes, according to pages that were accidentally published early by Carphone Warehouse. The standard Pixel packs a 5-inch Full HD display, while the Pixel XL packs a 5.5-inch Quad HD display.

Both devices are powered by Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB of RAM, and there will be 32GB and 128GB storage options to choose from. Interestingly, the listings also promise microSD card support.

A 12-megapixel camera will feature on the back of both devices, while an 8-megapixel camera will sit on the front. It’s thought the cameras could be exactly the same as those used on last year’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

Both devices will also offer a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, USB-C connectivity with fast-charging, and Android 7.1 Nougat. The Pixel will feature a 2,770mAh battery, while the Pixel XL will pack a 3,450mAh battery.

Like all leaks, there is a possibility the information here is inaccurate. However, Carphone Warehouse is a major retailer in the U.K., so we have no reason not to trust that the details it has are genuine.

The listings have since been removed, so you won’t find either of these Pixel devices on the Carphone Warehouse website right now. But they are expected to turn tomorrow after Google’s event, which kicks off at 9 a.m. PST or 12 p.m. EST.
