Google Pixel and Pixel XL appear in an awesome blue color that might be Verizon exclusive

Just when we thought there couldn't be more leaks about the Google Pixel and Pixel XL coming our way - after all, Carphone Warehouse leaked the specs, and Verizon leaked the design - a serial leakster from the ranks of Evan Blass revealed... an awesome blue color scheme that is coming our way with the new Nexus, oops, Pixel phones.

The Verizon leak hinted that there will be a blue Pixel version, but the product listing on its website was illustrated with the silver variant that we've seen numerous times already, together with a black model. That blue might be Verizon-exclusive, given that we'd never seen it until the carrier leak, and it also hints that, for the first time in ages, we will have a full suite of Google-made phones on America's largest carrier. 

The demise of the Nexus line might be the start of a beautiful carrier relationship, which is a prerequisite for a phone to be successful in the world's most visible and talked about handset market, so the Pixel line might be unlike anything we've seen so far by Google. Also, the blue one looks like honor 8 sans the second camera, and not just because of the color, what do you think?

The whole phone should have been blue not a dual white front and blue back.

Its thesame thing with apple tbh.. Same nonsense of always selecting a white front to spoil an otherwise good color choice. I'm beginning to really dislike giigle with all this underwhelming pixel leaks I've been seeing tbh. They never do anything and stick with it from google glass to ara etc. Even apple got it spot-on with the color choices this year.

Forget it. These lame companies will never do it. They'll always choose white front over anything. Very annoying. Its thesame with apple too.

What fundamental law dictates that only white and black front is possible? I'd have loved an HTC 10 with the front coloured exactly as it's grey back. Black and white front is just crude even with a light silver back.

Exactly. These companies are too unimaginative. I don't understand the fascination with white when black is obviously a better choice but no, for some stupid and unexplainable reason, the color they always choose is a white front to ruin and otherwise good looking color. I recently just realized that google has no taste especially in design. Everybody wants to follow apple and even the iphone moved away from that and got it spot on with the two ip7 colors. They should just remain an advertising company tbh. So stupid

How thell hell is white and blue possible on a phone? Now we need a screen protector with blue bezel!!! The designer of the pixel phone should be shot dead IMHO.

Did Sony patent the better looking blue or something? This is a shade too dark and drowns out the metallic texture imo. Plasticky looking color.
