The Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are growing less mysterious by the hour. First Australian carrier, then Canadian, then British (the biggest reveal), and now the largest US carrier Verizon seems to have joined the party of official leaksters. It appears Verizonalso accidentally posted early images of the phone, and revealed it will contain something called ‘Google Magic.’ The best part? Verizon has also unofficially confirmed the highly-anticipated blue model.
The leak, first reported by Gizmodo, shows each phone as available in 32GB and 128GB versions. While 16GB phones were once the norm for entry-level devices, Apple skipped 16GB models and went straight to 32GB with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and it now looks like Google is following Apple’s lead.
Google Magic is likely a front-and-center implementation of Google Assistant, which was hinted at in the Carphone Warehouse leak from the weekend. Or, it could just be Verizon being funny. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess.
The listing also gives the option to select the Pixel and Pixel XL in three different colors: blue, black, and white. While there have been rumors of a blue model, this is the first piece of evidence to prove its existence. Though that color could be a placeholder. We’ll have to see in, oh, 12 hours or so.
We already know plenty of what Google has in store for tomorrow. However no pricing or availability is revealed in this particular leak, though it does seem fairly obvious that pre-orders will begin tomorrow and the prices are expected to be starting from $649 for the Google Pixel. Who’s ordering?
