Revealed: Google Pixel & Pixel XL details leaked by Carphone Warehouse

Carphone Warehouse has accidentally leaked out everything we need to know about Google's upcoming Pixel and Pixel XL phones.

Google's upcoming Pixel and Pixel XL phones are set to be unveiled by the internet giant come October 4, and while a chain of leaks so far have ruined Google's surprise, an inadvertent error by retailer Carphone Warehouse has leaked out what was left of the upcoming phones.

Leaked details of Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones include detailed specifications, images and slideshows, revealing most of what we already knew about the devices. Pixel and Pixel XL will arrive with 5-inch and 5.5-inch phones, much like last year's Nexus twins, will run Android 7.0 Nougat OS and will feature as much as 128GB poof internal storage along with 4GB of RAM.

The new Pixel phones will also run Google's new Allo and Duo messaging and video-calling apps which may appear as default apps in the two phones. The phones will be compatible with Google's Daydream VR and it is possible that Google may ship free Daydream View headsets with Pixel and Pixel XL purchases for a limited time. As per reports, Google will also be launching a new version of Chromecast which will support 4K content on October 4 along with Daydream View VR headset which may support apps like YouTube and HBO Now to begin with.

One area where the Pixel phones aren't exactly superior to everyone else is waterproof capability. The phones' leaked IP ratings make it clear that they won't be able to survive a dunk but may run along when exposed to splashes.
