The new Pixel and Pixel XL phones have sold out in various regions, even outselling the Nexus 6P and turning out to be the most successful Google phones in recent years. While we have sung many praises about their cameras, the new phones come with many other features and a new OS to compete with the best phones and phablets launched this year.
Hardware-wise, the 5-inch Pixel smartphone arrives featuring a Full HD display, a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 821 processor, 32GB to 128GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM and a 2,770 mAh battery. Both the larger 5.5-inch Pixel XL, which was earlier code-named Marlin, and the smaller 5-inch Pixel (code-named Sailfish) phones come with Sony's IMX378 (12-MP) main cameras and IMX179 (8-MP) front cameras.
