Google’s upcoming Pixel hones have been a source for much speculation and as we get closer to the official launch date, we seem to know almost everything already, ahead of the launch. We’ve even seen videos of 3D renders. And it’s not much surprise that the leading case makers are already gearing up for the launch of Google’s new phones, given the hype Google has been able to create with its mysterious rectangles.
There is already a clear TPU case available on Amazon, and now we have a new listing from Spigen. The company has already marked its territory on Amazon with its Rugged Armor case for the Big G’s impending phablet.
With just over a day until the purported launch, Spigen seems to be sure of the final design and measurements. It’s widely accepted that the Pixel XL will get a 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 820/821 SoC, 4 GB RAM and Sony’s new IMX378 sensor as seen inside the Xiaomi Mi 5s.
These latest case leaks align with what we have hitherto seen of the larger Pixel variant, and it seems prospective Pixel XL fans will be able to pick up a Spigen Rugged Armor case right from the word Go. It packs Spigen’s signature spider-web interior for shock absorption, a few relevant cut-outs for features like the rear fingerprint sensor, and a raised lip to protect the display.
The product is listed as ‘Currently Unavailable’, so there’s no word on pricing or availability, but this case usually retails for about ten bucks. Spigen obviously wants to cash in on the aforementioned early rush and hence, its safe to say that the case will be available once Google’s October 4th event has run its course.
What do you think of the case design? Many fans have been complaining about the Pixel’s design so I believe you’d be the first ones to throw over a case on it if you do end up buying?
