White Google Pixel and black Pixel XL mistakenly revealed by Canadian carrier
We're two days away from Google's much-hyped October 4 event, where the company will officially announce its Pixel and Pixel XL phones. If you had any doubts about what the upcoming phones will look like, Bell Canada, one of the largest mobile carriers up north, is here to clear them away. The Canadian carrier made a mistake today and revealed an official image of the 5-inch Google Pixel - a white version of it, to be exact.

Right now, there's a webpage over at Bell's official website that presents the Pixel and reads: "Introducing Pixel, Phone by Google. Order yours today." We're pretty sure that you can't really order the handset today, and Bell will probably remove this page in no time. Weird enough, the Google Pixel is showcased on a page that seems to have been destined for Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders, which means Bell's website is pretty buggy at the moment.

Save for its different paint job, the Google Pixel that Bell is showing looks exactly like the black model that we saw earlier this week. The white Google Pixel also includes what appears to be an Android 7.1 Nougat interface.

Both the 5-inch Pixel and the 5.5-inch Pixel XL will probably be available to order immediately after their announcement on October 4 (at least in the US and Canada). Prices may start at $649, though we can't confirm this yet.

As you may already know, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL should feature powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processors, 4 GB of RAM, and at least 32 GB of internal memory. The Pixel is expected to sport a 1080p display, while the Pixel XL should have a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) one. You can find out more about the two devices from our Google Pixel and Pixel XL preliminary specs review and comparison.

Update: Bell now also has a page showing off a black Google Pixel XL.

Well there might be some big heat sinks in their, especially since this is running Vulkan and Daydream VR. Which should be awesome.

You could land a plane on those bezels. The iphone and the pixel should build an airport.

Yeah, Google is reportedly trying to make it's Pixel lineup its own brand.

Not necessarily. The rumored 7" tablet apparently will be a Nexus branded device. And if they market this to a different group since it seems they're pushing more of a Google service device rather than stock Android, that would leave the door open to run the Nexus line alongside the Pixel line. I have no way of knowing that with any certainty, but why have the tablet be branded as a Nexus if they're going all in on the Pixel line?

You know that a smartphone is great when it has no other shortcomings that people pick the bezel to make fun of.

Did they make it cheap looking as a theft deterrent?

Thanks Bell... Even though I no longer plan to use your services and bad customer management

lol, Really though, it does look like an iPhone, though you put this in the hands of an iPhone fan and they'll immediately notice a more intuitive GUI.

Well, as much trash as I talk, at least I'm honest with myself about the actual reality of the legitimacy of my statements.
