Google Pixel XL leaks again in low-quality photo

Mysterious “Nexus” leaker @usbfl has released yet another photo of the Google Pixel XL on Twitter. The Pixel XL was previously known as the Nexus Marlin, but after Google reportedly opted for a name change, @usbfl has done the same, thus becoming the “Pixel” leaker. Either way, following in the tradition of previous leaks, this new image is of exceptionally low quality. Even more so than the last two, we are not joking! Check them out:

This new photo allegedly shows the Pixel XL in action, though not much can be made out on its screen, save for the Android 7.0 Nougat navbar. The image is notable, however, for it is the first one released by @usbfl to show the entire front side of the phone. In case you are curious, the white writing on the bottom bezel, if genuine, is most likely some sort of prototype number or a “NOT FOR SALE” caption. Of course, it is impossible to make out, given the horrible picture quality.

As the official unveiling of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL inches closer and closer, we are learning new things about the two phones seemingly every day. For more info on the upcoming handsets — the first to ditch the Nexus name and adopt Google's Pixel brand — check out these helpful articles:

I don't want to believe that! I'm sure the retail unit will excel at low light.

I hate to say it but this is not the prettiest phone I've ever seen.

See it in the flesh and it probably will be different. People said that about the chamfers of the HTC 10 too, but many has then agreed that the phone really is good looking.

True, I thought the HTC 10 and 6P looked terrible in renders But they actually look great in reality

Pretty doesn't mean everything, like iPhone 6 series.

Looks a lot like the Nexus 4, which is awesome as that's my favourite looking Nexus. All google have to do is not stuff up the price, which we all know is exactly what they are going to do.

Bezels don't look too bad here. Maybe this is just a vague prototype?
