A completely comprehensive leak, again by a retail partner.
Canadian carrier Bell definitely has egg on its face after leaking pictures of the Pixel and Pixel XL, but now UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has outdone it. As pointed out in our forums, CPW has full product pages for the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL including various photos and specs.
If the leaked specs are to be believed, things are breaking down roughly as expected from earlier leaks.
The Pixel XL is listed with a 5.5-inch 2560x1440 AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4, and a 3450 mAh battery. The standard Google Pixel lines up with a 5-inch 1920x1080 AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 4 as well, and a 2770 mAh battery. The common points between the two are a 12MP rear camera with 1.55-micron pixels and an f/2.0 aperture, an 8MP front-facing camera, one-touch fingerprint sensor, Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM and a choice of 32 or 128GB of storage. Google Assistant is also highlighted as a main feature of the phones.
A microSD card slot is listed also ... but we're not putting weight behind that. We should take many of these specific specs with a grain of salt as these pre-release pages are often filled with placeholder information. Just scanning through the pages you can see a few typos and odd issues in the spec sheets.
Going beyond the specs, CPW also includes various product shots of the phones, giving us better looks at them than we've seen in previous leaked blurrycam shots and renders.
There's still a whole lot to learn about the new Pixel phones from Google, but CPW jumping the gun has definitely pulled back the curtain further than before to show us what's coming up next from Google.
