First Google Pixel ad leaks ahead of announcement

We're just under an hour away from the official launch of the Google Pixel duo now, and plenty of last-ditch leaks have been coming through the mill. In the latest, we get a glimpse of what's likely to become a large ad campaign for Google's venture into the premium smartphone marketplace. The new advertisement sees the devices take center stage in a literal sense, and also reveals a not-yet-live URL for the Pixels. 

For the duration of the one-minute ad, the middle segment of the clip is obscured by a white bar that gradually morphs into a smartphone shape. By the end, we see the Pixel form factor in all of its glory. The short also reveals as the main page for the Pixel and Pixel XL on Google's website, though it currently shows nothing but a 404 error. 

With not long to go, we're certainly past the "what we think we know" stage by now. A number of key details pertaining to the Pixel and Pixel XL have been revealed and reaffirmed by numerous sources, as you'll see in our rumor round-up.

With that said, Google could have a number of surprises up its sleeve, so be sure to stay tuned to our liveblog for a play-by-play of the major announcements as they happen. 

In the meantime, check out the leaked commercial below, and let us know if you're excited about the Pixel duo in the comments.

Ugliest Nexus up to date. Nexus is dead, and here comes the ugly phone questions taken from ugly opt, Lg5 and Htcm10.

Better wait for the official price... Google hasn't disclosed the pricing yet... But on second thought, you'll get MASSIVE discounts after about 10 or so months, so just wait it out, mate...! Nexus 5X is going for around $300 (Australian) around here... And I'm quite in eager to snatch one...! Okay, I'm going all GAGA over it, there I said it...!!! Come-on, its THE LAST NEXUS we are talking about here...! P'Noon! (< Look at the comment below if curious)

Is that cam footage from a really wide screen TV or is it actually really short and fat compared to the press renders? It's weird. The people and live footage look normal proportion enough but then when they show the phone it looks like a fat 8 inch tablet. Weird. Lo!

Why the little 'shade' on the bottom icons...? Copying iOS much...? But the swipe up to open the drawer is just... BRILLIANT...!!! Let see if iOS do something about it... Any iPhone I pick tend to be riddled with unorganized layers of icons and even more icons...! Not quite brilliant, I'd say... Minimalism has its price in some scenarios... Lets see if they 'rectify' it in iOS 11... G'D... No... P'Noon! (< Weird, innit? Its "Pixel Noon"...!)
