Google is looking to take charge of Android with a strong foot and two Pixel phones

Google’s setting the stage for a major hardware announcement in October, but you don’t have to wait til then to see some serious signs of change. It’s something that, by all counts, should feel familiar: the annual ritual of Google unveiling its latest flagship Android phones running the latest version of stock Android.

But this year, something feels decidedly different. Look closely, and it’s obvious: This isn’t the same Google we’ve come to know over these past several years. Google has always been a reluctant hardware maker, even though its Android operating system powers more than 80 percent of smartphones around the globe. But next month it plans to launch two new “Made by Google” smartphones running a unique version of Android with new features unavailable on any other phone. How the other OEMs respond to that, if they do, will be interesting.

Latest Pixel & Pixel XL renders show the display assembly

Google is expected to begin a new era by introducing the Pixel and Pixel XL probably on October 4th. The handsets are both made by HTC which is rumoured to be making devices for Google for the next 2 years as well. These will replace the Nexus branded stock Android handsets. In a way, this takes us back full circle. The very first Nexus handset, the Nexus One, was manufactured by HTC in early 2010. We’ve seen a number of renders showing the back of both Pixel models, and a 360° video of the Pixel. The Pixel and Pixel XL both passed the GCF certification today as well revealing some new details.And now we have some new renders revealing the front panels of both devices.

German blogger Roland Quandt released these images on his website, WinFuture.De, where you can find more pictures of the display assembly, which he says is courtesy of a parts dealer from Hong Kong.

Nexus launcher is now Pixel Launcher : Download it here

Awhile ago there was a lot of fuzz about a redesigned Google launcher for Android Nougat which then turned out to be a specialized version just for the new Nexus devices, the Nexus launcher. Then a few Nexus wallpapers leaked, we also had a tutorial for you to get the Nexus Launcher feel with Nova Launcher, we had the new Nexus ringtones and notification sounds for you, Action Launcher came out replicating the Nexus look.

And now, we find out that the Nexus Launcher has become Pixel Launcher which makes sense since the Nexus phones have become Pixel phones.

Nexus Sailfish fresh renders and 360° video

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.

The HTC Nexus Sailfish Surfaces In More Alleged Renders, prices revealed

When it comes to leaks, it’s been the HTC Nexus Sailfish which has seen the majority of leaks so far. Out of the two devices expected this year, it’ll be Sailfish which will cater to those with budget constraints. The past couple of years have witnessed an evolved approach for the lineup from Google.
