Google Pixel XL: Rebranded Gadget with Massive Power Reserves
Google’s newest handset is finally out in open and it won’t sport a Nexus prefix, 2016 onwards. Better known as the Pixel XL, this smartphone is the purported Nexus ‘Marlin’ that was teased a few months back. Google Pixel XL is manufactured in collaboration with HTC. Now when the name is out, it is only appropriate to take a closer look at the existing specs sheet, in detail:
Google Pixel XL offers a 5.5-inch screen that is further safeguarded by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The QHD panel looks vibrant and offers 2560x1440 pixels, in terms of resolution. As expected Android Nougat is served, right out of the box. Powering this device is a sizeable 3,450mAh battery module with support for Quick Charge 3.0.
Apart from that we also get 4G LTE support and dual-band wireless connectivity with this smartphone. Other specs include Bluetooth v4.2, GPS with GLONASS, NFC and the USB Type-C port facilitating fast charging.
Google Pixel XL might be priced higher than expected and will surely not be the cheapest flagship to show up in 2016. Moreover, this smartphone, unlike the Nexus branded gadgets, comes with a skinned version of Android. This might not be the best feature on-board owing to the bloatware associated with the same.
Unique Selling Points:
This handset comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC followed by 4 gigs of RAM. Internal storage capacity for the same is either 32GB or 64GB depending upon the purchased variant. A 12MP primary shooter is on-board followed by the 8MP selfie snapper.
