The new Pixel phones from Google are expected to be launched on October 4 and according to the latest rumours they could be the more powerful than any other smartphone available today.
Pictures of the Pixel and Pixel XL have been shared by Android Authority and @OnLeaks and are said to be “factory renders” which means that they have probably come from the company’s official design and production line.
By the way, as far as I can tell, the Pixels will by the first US devices with Snapdragon 821 by a long shot. No one else is using it.
