Since the Galaxy Note 7 and the new iPhone have been officially announced, the Google Pixel has been the most anticipated phone to date.
Thanks to a joining of forces with Steve Hemmerstoffer, known on Twitter as @OnLeaks, and Android Authority, there have been some leaks of what is to come. Hemmerstoffer compares the outer shell of the Pixel to the still unreleased Sailfish; also by Google.
Sailfish is a codename Mountain View has given to the smaller, 5” handset. The Marlin supposedly looks the same, but there is no word on how big it’s going to be still. The display size is said to be around 5.2 or 5.3 inches. The leaked pictures have been seen before; kind of.
A while back, the actual pictures of what it looked like were leaked, but now with the latest leak of the actual 3-D rendering, conformation on the Pixel has been made.
Hemmerstoffer so far has been almost 100% right with his leaks regarding the CAD models. This would elevate the big fears that it’s going to be an HTC One A9 copycat. HTC seems to be the one in charge of this new devices construction, there is no resemblance between the two phones.
The back of the phone is said to be metal, with an extra layer that surrounds the camera, and fingerprint reader made of glass. This gives the phone a look apart from the rest, that has been praised around the internet. It is said that the final product will include of one the Google logo’s somewhere on the phone. Whether it is the full Google logo, or the G logo, is anyone’s guess.
The phones audio set up is rumored to be a simple stereo set-up. Compared to the HTC 10’s rather fancy stereo set up, it is said to be better-than-average.
The phone is 143.8×69.5×7.3 mm at its thinnest point, which is the bottom. The Pixel measures at 8.5mm on the top, in between the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 5X. It’s said that the signature Pixel light bar will be absent from the new design, and is set to release on October 5th.
