From year to year, Google’s Nexus programme produced one or two pure Android smartphones. Nexus displayed Android in its purest form without the need for manufacturer skins. It is remarkable that Nexus was an opportunity for Google to say, “This is what Android is.”
You will be amazed at the changes this year. The most significant change is the shift away from the Nexus program entirely to Pixel. The Pixel launch is a clear sign that 2016 will be all about being “Made By Google”.
Let’s now talk a little about the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.
Google Pixel: Manufacturer
Google has made things better for 2016. Google has not just built a factory that makes smartphones. It was previously stated that Google wanted to be involved in hardware design and software development. This has finally happened.
Google Pixel and PixelXL: Design
The Pixel is smaller than the Pixel XL, but the Pixel XL is larger. The Pixel measures 143.8 x 6.9.5 x 8.6mm, and weighs 143g. The Pixel XL measures 154.7 x 755.7 x 8.6mm, and weighs 168g.
If we talk about design, both devices are similar. They are generally made of metal with a glass panel at the top. The panel houses a circular, central fingerprint sensor. The flash and rear camera are located flush in the top left corner.
The front edges have a chamfer similar to the HTC 10. The speakers are located at the bottom of the device, on either side of the USB Type C charging port. The volume rocker and power button are located on the right-hand side, but they are the only physical buttons.
Both handsets have a speaker at their fronts. There is a sensor below, and a front camera on the left. The Pixel and Pixel XL will come in Quite Black and Very Silver, as well as Really Blue and Really Blue colors.
Google Pixel and PixelXL: Display
The Pixel, which has a 5-inch AMOLED screen, is the smaller of both the new devices. It boasts Full HD resolution and a 441ppi pixel density.
The Google Pixel XL features a Quad HD resolution across its 5.5 inch display. This means that it has a slightly higher pixel density at 534ppi. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection and AMOLED technology.
We can expect vibrant colors from the Pixel XL and Pixel XL thanks to AMOLED technology.
Google Pixel and PixelXL: Camera
Both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL can be distinguished by a 12.3-megapixel rear camera that has a f/2.0 aperture, 1.55um pixels, and a 12.3 megapixel resolution. Both devices have an 8-megapixel camera on the front, just like the Nexus 6P.
There are several features on board such as optical image stabilization, video image stabilization, and Smartburst which is great for capturing action shots.
The default feature of the Pixel and Pixel XL cameras is HDR+. Clear and vivid results can be achieved even in difficult conditions by minimizing noise, extending dynamic range, and fusing multiple photos together.
Google Pixel and PixelXL: Software
The Pixels come with Android Nougat, the latest version of Android. Although it was recently released, the Pixels have an updated version with Android 7.1.
The launcher has been updated and all apps are now round, just like the Chrome app. The Pixels are the first phones with Google Assistant integrated and the first Daydream-ready phones.
