Sculpture found in Brooklyn promotes October 4th unveiling of Pixel, Pixel XL phones
Back on Monday, we showed you a commercial that Google had been running on primetime to promote the October 4th unveiling of the new Pixel phones. Today, photographs surfaced of a strange looking work of art found in Brooklyn that mirrors Google's ad. Discovered in Brooklyn Bridge Park, the sculpture shows the October 4th date of the unveiling, an outline of a smartphone, and the Google "G" logo exactly as seen in the commercial. On the platform of the statue is the hashtag #MadeByGoogle.

On October 4th, Google is expected to introduce the Pixel and Pixel XL. These are HTC-built handsets that will kick off a new line of phones that will replace the stock Android Nexus range. The Pixel is expected to carry a 5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood, carrying a quad-core 2.15 GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A fingerprint scanner is found on back, under the 12MP rear-facing camera. A front-facing 8MP snapper shoots selfies and handles video chats, and Android 7.0 is pre-installed.

The Pixel XL carries a larger 5.5-inch screen, with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Most of the other specs match those found on the Pixel. While the latter will be plastic, the Pixel XL will feature a metal build. Both models will sport limited dust and water protection with an IP53 certification.
