Is this what the Pixel XL will look like?

With the iPhone 7 launch firmly behind us, there’s just one more major phone announcement before the end of the year. At some point between now and the end of 2016, Google will announce its new lineup smartphones.

This time around, Google is reportedly planning to do things differently. Not only is the company expected to drop the Nexus name in favour of its Pixel tablet branding, stock Android may also soon be a thing of the past, according to reports from Android Central.

In terms of a specific release, Android Police is reporting that Google will unveil the Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4th.


In the meantime, TechDroider has created renders of Pixel XL based on everything we’ve heard about the device up to this point. The Pixel XL is expected to ship with a 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 821 processor and 32GB of storage.
