Google Pixel XL dimensions and 360-degree renders leaked ahead of October 4 event
A salvo of leaks and rumors surrounding the upcoming Google Pixel smartphones keeps cropping up as October 4 draws near. The latest shot has been fired by the usual suspect @OnLeaks, who revealed Google Pixel XL’s dimensions and 3D images in a 360-degree rendering.
The 3D renders show what seems to be a factory CAD result for the Pixel XL, meaning the measurements on all sides and corners are accurate. That is not to say the leak isn’t to be taken with a grain of salt. The leakster shared on Twitter that Google Pixel XL (codenamed Marlin) is said to measure 154.72 x 75.74 x 7.3 mm (on the bottom), though the handset appears thicker at the top at 8.5 mm.
#Google #PixelXL aka #Nexus #Marlin dimensions = 154.72mm x 75.74mm x 7.3mm (top) / 8.5mm (bottom) pic.twitter.com/GNVHNnwFMX— OnLeaks (@OnLeaks) September 29, 2016
Google Pixel XL appears larger than the Pixel thanks to the former’s 5.5-inch display against the latter’s 5-inch screen. Further examination of the renders will reveal a glass plate that seems to cover the rear camera and fingerprint scanner on the device’s back panel.
There’s also a metal frame with sloping edges, a stereo speaker at the bottom, and a USB Type-C port in addition to the power button and volume keys. That’s on the hardware side. Other than the details of the key specs of Pixel XL and Pixel that we previously learned, there’s word that the Pixel XL could set you back around $650.
We’ll know more about the two Google Pixel smartphones once the Mountain View giant takes the veil off it on Tuesday next week. So stay tuned for more updates!
