New Pixel, Pixel XL renders showcase black and white variants, cases too
As you may have gathered by now, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL will likely take the reigns from the very popular Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Both devices, the latter in particular, proved popular with Nexus fans, and from what we've seen of the newer models' specs and features, these rebranded Pixel handsets could also be something to savor. Today, a new leak offers up a couple of Pixel XL renders, along with a few cases specific to both purported versions.
Where the Nexus 5X and 6P have largely dissimilar exteriors, the HTC-made Pixel series looks set to gain some uniformity. The non-XL version will naturally be the smaller of the pair, with a 5.2-inch display or thereabouts. The XL flavor, meanwhile, is expected to edge within phablet territory courtesy of a 5.5-inch panel.
The new leak of the larger model ties in nicely with the what we've hitherto seen, though interestingly, the white version clearly showcases a physical home button below the display. As seen above, the notion of a home button has not been expected of either Pixel model, right down to the very latest leak. Given that the lion's share of evidence points to there being no home button to speak of, we're taking this new sighting with a pinch of salt.
Then again, it should be noted that allied to the renders, a bunch of case leaks feature inserts that also illustrate a physical home button. Take a look through the gallery below of all the new shots, and be sure to have your say in the comments
