There’s no doubt that one of the most expected handsets of this fall is the new Google Pixel (as well as the Pixel XL), which should make its debut on October 4, during a special event. The tech community is very curious about what Google’s phones will bring new, besides a new branding, replacing the Nexus moniker.
Even though we know a lot of details about the two handsets, including the way they will look, if the leaked images that emerged online are taken for granted, Google is still trying to build some hype around its new phones.
The first ads for the Google Pixel were spotted in New York City, revealing that the search engine company invested a lot in advertising, unlike other years.
Of course, we might as well call these ads teasers, as they don’t reveal that much except an empty rectangle, alongside “Oct 4” and Google’s “G” logo. Some ads are also sporting the #MadeByGoogle hashtag.
The latter is an excellent idea, as most smartphone users aren’t aware about the existence of Nexus handsets, so they will be very curious to see what this new device, made by the company that brought us the biggest search engine in the world. On the other side, it will be very interesting to see how people will react to the prices, as the Google Pixel is rumored to have a starting price of $649, while the Pixel XL should be a bit more expensive.
Looking at how much effort Google has put into these ads, we might as well hope to see the new Pixel handsets in carrier stores, as the company did with 2014’s Nexus 6 and eventually stopped doing this with the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.
