Google Pixel Phones 2016

We’ve been hearing about Google’s upcoming Pixel phones for a very long time now, and finally, we know when they will be unveiled: October 4th. With a very cryptic teaser video, Google has now officially confirmed that the event will begin at 9AM Pacific Time on October 4th.

Although at this point, we are fairly certain that HTC will be making the upcoming devices, perhaps Google had more of a say in the process than it did with previous Nexus devices. This would align with multiple reports from the past that claimed Google was building its own smartphone.

Madeby.google.com is also up and live, but as of now, it’s just the same teaser video. I imagine Google will be adding more information to it as we approach the unveiling day, so be sure to check it from time to time. Also, from there you can sign up to receive more information if you’re an avid Nexus/Pixel fan!

Just to refresh your memory, the regular Pixel phone is rumored to have a 5.2-inch Full HD display, powered by Snapdragon 820. The Pixel XL will be a more premium phone with a metal frame and a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. It is said to be coming with either a revised version of the Snapdragon 820 chipset or Snapdragon 821. In terms of the camera department, both devices should feature an identical 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie-shooter.

So there it is, folks: mark your calendar because on October 4th, Google will be officially announcing its brand new smartphone line, the Pixel family!

If the price is true... I might just get a iPhone SE instead. The 5 inch Pixel is tempting but not at that price...

Can wait. Existing SuperSU root methods can't work with new pixel phone.
