Google’s next pair of smartphone iterations has been doing the rounds lately and if there is one thing that is sure about the devices, the very fact that they do not need further rounds of speculations to jazz up their imminent launching. As such, Google has upped its apparent marketing strategy and shocked the crowd with something they didn’t see coming — the dropping of the “Nexus” title. Google has now named its next line of flagship smartphones Google Pixel Phones.
Google is expected to unveil the new Google phones and more on October 4th but this is still not confirmed. Although Android Authority in partnership with @onleaks have brought forth some new renders of the smaller variant, the Sailfish, or the Google Pixel. The new renders confirm what was already rumoured but also show some more details.
As you can see in the picture above, the Sailfish seems to have stereo speakers on the bottom along with a USB Type C in the middle, both these details were previously not known.
Android Authority also confirms the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack near the top left edge although it is not visible in the renders, they also confirm the dimensions of the metallic body which are 143.8 mm x 69.5 mm x 7.3 mm at its thinnest point (the bottom) while it is 8.5 mm at the thickest point (the top).
Google Pixel is rumored to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 (or 820) processor with 4GB of random access memory (RAM), 32GB or 128GB of internal storage. Optically, Google Pixel will be equipped with a dual Sony IMX378 (12mp) main camera and Sony IMX179 (8mp) front camera setup. It is expected to be running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box powered by a 2770 mAh battery.

So far the Pixel design looks really sleek and HTC 10 like, the bezels on the top and bottom are a bit more than needed. What do you think of the Google Pixel? Do you like the design?
