Google Pixel XL dimensions revealed alongside 360-degree renders

Google Pixel XL dimensions revealed alongside 360-degree renders
It's no secret that Google is getting ready to announce two new smartphones on October 4. But these won't be Nexus phones, because Google wants to start anew with a Pixel family of handsets, which will likely include a 5-inch Pixel, and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL.

We've already seen various images depicting both the Pixel and Pixel XL, and today we can take another look at the latter, thanks to renders revealed by @OnLeaks (a reliable source). Reportedly, the renders are based on a factory CAD, so they should provide a pretty accurate representation of the real device.

According to @OnLeaks, the Google Pixel XL measures 154.72 x 75.74 x 7.3 mm, though it's up to 8.5 mm thick at the top - where the rear seems to be covered by a glass plate including the phone's fingerprint scanner and main camera. Obviously, this is a big device, though it's not larger than last year's Nexus 6P (159.3 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm), or the brand new iPhone 7 Plus (158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm).

Save for the glass portion at the top, the Pixel XL is supposedly made out of metal. You can check out a 360-degree view of the device in the video embedded below. 

Both the Pixel XL and Pixel will likely run Android 7.1 Nougat at launch. The handsets are expected to share most of their features, including Snapdragon 821 CPUs, 4 GB of RAM, and at least 32 GB of internal memory. The new Google phones could be released on (or soon after) October 4, for prices starting at $600 or more.
