There’s been a number ofGoogle Pixel andPixel XL leaks over the weekend and most seem to reassure us of things we’ve already heard in rumors. And throughout these leaks, we’ve learned a couple of new things that hadn’t been talked about before. There have been official renders leaked from multiple retailers who accidentally pressed the publish button too early. Which is interesting to have seen happen when even Google isn’t scheduled to announce them until tomorrow.
First, we learned thatGoogle Pixel andPixel XL customers will be able to store unlimited “full resolution” images in Photos instead of being limited by the amount of storage you have on your Google account. We also see there will be a “Smart Storage” feature that will automatically free up storage on your phone so you’re never told about being out of storage because of the photos and videos you have on your device.
Live Cases will be available for both thePixel and thePixel XL so users can use images from Google Earth and Google Trends to personalize their devices. But what will likely excite even more people is the new leak that suggests thePixel andPixel XL will be available in 32GB and 128GB variants. This leak comes from a photo that was allegedly taken from the Telstra system. This photo also shows the 2 color options that will be available at launch (Quite Black and Very Silver). There’s no mention of the rumored Really Blue in the Telstra system though.
Nexus fans have been begging for Google to sell 128GB variants of their devices for years but the Mountain View search giant hasn’t offered them barring the Nexus 6P. It’s interesting to see that a 64GB version isn’t shown in this leak, and it makes us curious how much the 128GB version will cost since the base model of theGoogle Pixel is rumored to be priced at $650 here in the United States. In any case, we’ll likely learn tomorrow!
