Pixel phones are made by Google “inside and out”

After waves of leaks and rumors, Google finally announced Pixel & Pixel XL in its latest event. It is the first phone to use the name, Pixel, although not the first device. Furthermore, it is the first phone made by Google although the phones are actually built by HTC. But Google takes all the credit.

Coming in two sizes, 5 and 5.5-inch, they both share the same specs and features. They both are powered by SnapDragon 821 alongside with 4GB of Ram and a main storage of either 32 or 128 GB.

All of these are fit inside a metal case with a glass panel on the top back of the phone. The camera is placed in the glass panel.

Sharing the same 12 MP camera, both Pixel and Pixel Xl supposedly come with the best phone camera ever.  Google also gives you the privilege to store all of your photos and videos in Google Photos no matter how high their resolution are. It is good, but it raises some questions about security.

Anyway, new Pixel phones are also the first ones to use Google’s new personal assistant. All you need to do is either press the “G” logo if you are on the home screen or hold the home button in other cases. Now, it is smarter and even, can get help from third-party apps.

Preorder starts today in selected countries including US, Canada, German and UK. The smaller model costs $649 but we don’t know the price for its big brother yet.
