Today is Google Pixel day and Google fans are grabbing their office chairs and firing up YouTube for the live event starting soon. But if you’re too excited to wait for that live event and need something to gnaw on now, Droid Life has uploaded a leaked Pixel commercial that you can watch below. The person recording it seems to be really excited too, or nervous, and you’ll have to ignore lots of heavy breathing going on.
As we reported from the Carphone Warehouse webpage leak, the specs on the Pixel are pretty nice, you can check out what we know about them below.
The Pixel will sport a 5″ screen and the Pixel XL a 5.5″ screen 1920×1080 and 2560×1440 respectively. Both Pixels will have Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB of RAM. Storage configurations are 32GB and 128GB respectively and Carphone Warehouse also lists microSD card support, which is curious since Google’s Nexus line usually omitted this feature. If there is indeed a microSD slot then many people will be very pleased with that.
The rear cameras on both Pixels will sit at 12MP and we’re speculating that HTC’s camera software will make its way into these as well. The front cameras on both will be 8MP and again, could carry some of HTC’s camera technology, like OIS both front and rear. Fingerprint scanners will be on the rear of both devices, just like all the leaked photos have shown. USB Type-C will of course be on board with fast charging and the Pixel will have a 2,770mAh battery and the XL will house a 3,450mAh battery. Of course Google’s latest Android version (7.1) will be shipping on this.
