Google’s Android Smartphone, the Pixel XL, has been specially designed by the search engine giant to accommodate their newest OS versions. It runs Nougat like a pro as well as earlier versions of Android’s operating system. Google didn’t hold back on the aesthetics either. The design of these phones really highlights the brilliantly crisp touchscreen with elegant colour options. Choose between ‘quite black’, ‘very silver’ and ‘really blue’ depending on your preferences.
The quad-core CPU along with the Adreno 530 make operating your Google Pixel fast & simple. 2GB RAM will also keep your apps running smoothly. You’ll also get an onboard memory of 32GB for storage (this is not upgradeable, but larger onboard memory versions of the phone are available). The motivation behind this Smartphone was to introduce Android users to their latest version 7.1 (aka Nougat), which is now available for upgrading other Android-compatible phones. However, Google wanted this particular phone to highlight the advancement of their operating system—and they’ve succeeded!
Google have not forgotten about camera functionality on the Google Pixel XL. The 12.3MP camera with dual-LED flash will make your photos crisp & clear, boasting a high resolution for close shots and distant ones. The video recording function also delivers high resolution depending on your settings. Choose between 2160p@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps and 720p@240fps. With these great features, there’s no reason to be sceptical about Google’s new phone. They clearly know what they are doing.
A newer model Google Pixel 2 XL 64GB was released in October 2017.
