Google announced the Pixel and Pixel XL, in addition to several other products, during its press conference today. Jon had a chance to battle the crowds and get his hands on the Pixel XL, which you can check out in the gallery above.
Man, that blue color is gorgeous, and the aluminum design definitely screams “premium.” You’ll note the 12.2MP camera on the back flanked by a flash, a rear-facing fingerprint reader and the new “G” logo at the bottom of the phone. You’ll find a speaker on the bottom next to the USB-C port that’s capable of fast charging the device with up to 7 hours of life in just 15 minutes, too.
The highlight here is Google’s Android 7.1 Nougat operating system that features the new Google Assistant and Pixel launcher. Note the cleaner look and the easy access to Google Search with the new pill-shaped tab at the top of the phone. We’ll have more impressions on how it works later.
For now, enjoy our hands-on photos and stick around for additional ones later today. Also be sure to check back for our hands-on video.
