After a press render of the upcoming Google Pixel was leaked online yesterday, giving us the chance to see how the successor of the Nexus line-up will look like, today it’s Google Pixel XL’s turn to make a first appearance! And you’ll never guess…it looks the same, just bigger.
Of course, phablet fans, who were delighted with the Pixel’s rumoured specs, will definitely love this specific model, as the XL comes with a 5.5″ display, a bit smaller than Google’s phablet from last year, the Nexus 6P, made by Huawei.
Putting the Google Pixel XL and Google Pixel renders side by side will reveal that the only difference between the two is the size, meaning that the search engine giant is directly aiming at iPhone’s 7 and 7 Plus with these two handsets.
However, size won’t be the only difference between the two devices. Sporting a significantly larger display, the Google Pixel XL will feature a 3450 mAh power pack, a bit bigger than the Pixel’s 2770 mAh unit. Also, it will definitely cost more, but this is an aspect which is still a mystery. Except the fact that the Pixel will have a starting price of $649, we don’t know anything else. However, presuming that this price is accurate, the XL should have a price tag of around $749.
Other specs, shared by the two phones, include a Snapdragon 821 chip under the hood, aided by 4 GB of RAM, as well as 32 or 128 GB of internal storage, unfortunately without the possibility of expanding it, due to the lack of a microSD card slot.
On the back, the Google Pixel XL, will come with a fingerprint scanner and a 12 MP rear camera, teaming with the 8 MP selfie unit. The spec sheet is completed by a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm jack on the top.
