Final Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL specs are posted by Carphone Warehouse

Earlier today, we showed you a couple of images from Bell Canada that included a white Google Pixel and a black Google Pixel XL. Eventually, a photo showing a black Pixel appeared. Now, we have hit the mother lode as retailer Carphone Warhouse posted listings for both phones. Keep in mind that these aren't leaks, full of rumored information. Assuming no further changes to the pair, these are the final specs...

I knew it was around that time. So they haven't had them for almost 6 years, I doubt they're going to bring it back now.

"A 256GB capacity microSD slot (?) is available for those seeking additional storage"... It would be amazing if this were true and not just a typo... Fingers crossed! I'm also impressed by the battery capacity of the smaller Pixel, for a 1080P display, I might just go with the smaller unit.

Agreed. This would be the first Nexus like offering to have expandable storage since the Nexus One. And I just so happen to have a couple of 200GB cards lying around, so it would be sweet if this were true. However, I think I'm still going to hold on to my 6p for the time being. Maybe I'll pick one up on a sale or used down the road, unless there's something major we don't know about them yet.

Well, all will be revealed on Tuesday. I really do hope for a lot of surprises during their press conference. The wait for information sucks, but I also don't like the gradual leaks and all the uncertainty of whether or not any of it is legitimate or not.

Is it just me or is the defence to expandable storage now gone from the article? I just went back to look over the specs and I don't see any defence to it anymore.

Make the second "N" backwards and it could look like the Nine Inch Nails logo.

They was a great news for me, finally! Unlike some phones doesn't support SD card yet. Definitely buy it as my next driver!

Unfortunately, editors over at Android Police are still comfident that there's no SD card slot (they've been very accurate so far, reporting the 821, back design, new onscreen buttons, ... months ago)

I'll go with smaller one as no compromise on performance and camera this time. 1080p is more than enough. Kudos big G

The bezels are big ... They should have Boomsound speakers as the phone is made by HTC

This phone better be well executed or Google is going to wind up doing itself a major disservice. With that being said, I could see myself liking this...but I can see myself liking the current and next OnePlus phones even more.

I always imagined I would buy the first "solely Google phone", but W.T.F google? I guess we'll see how you do next year....

Is it USB 3.0 or 2.0 though?

it looks like iPhone inspired. Even the wallpaper looks similar to iOS 10.

Even the wallpaper? Its just like the wallpapers they've been using since Lollipophttp://wccftech.com/complete-set-android-50-lollipop-wallpapers-devices/

Those bezels are hideous, it might as well be an iPhone.

It actually looks like a blackberry z10 or that cloud phone.

Google-made Pixel is better than Samsung phones...

Even Google manages to make a phone without some ugly camera hump, yet the two best selling phone companies cannot.

So what? i'd rather have a bump than no bump with compromises to image quality.

The 6P is currently takes the best photos at low light despite having a f/2.0 lens and lacking OIS No compromises in image quality Although the S7 is the best in terms of speed and video quality

So long as everything is perfectly still the P6 does take good low light shots due to HDR+. Otherwise it's Galaxy S7 every time, sensor captures more light and the focusing speeds are crazy fast which makes it a very consistent performer in low light. No need to rely and a software feature to achieve this.

The 1.8 lens on the s7 is offset by the 6p's larger sensor. So no it doesn't.
