Month of October is near and Google is set to launch its own manufactured replacements of Nexus mobile smartphone into the market known as the new PIXEL phones. It will arrive in 2 variants, Google Pixel and Pixel XL. The release date for both of the devices had been scheduled for October 4th, 2016.
Although, phone case makers had already produced and started selling out cases for the new Pixel phones that replaces the Nexus phones starting this year onwards – on several e-commerce websites including Amazon, and in the process ended up revealing the designs of both the devices.
Pixel and Pixel XL Design
There are confirmed talks that both variants resembles the iPhone 6 and the HTC One A9 as it housed in aluminium bodies and sporting unduly rounded edges although the edges look very premium and different from many other devices.
Users are sure to have mixed views about the body design, with its iPhone 6 look, but other people would still not fee anything exciting about it. The pure-Android Google phone “Pixel” is said to come with thick bezels that no phones released in 2016 had featured before. More exclusive stuff on the Google’s phone like the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, the impending smartphones will come with rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Overall, the Pixel and Pixel XL seem to sport same design, their body sizes are only thing that varies.

The much anticipated Google’s Android phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL will be announced on October 4th, 2016 at an event in San Francisco.
