The Nexus line of devices is gone, Pixel is taking the forefront. Google unveiled the Pixel and Pixel XL earlier this morning and in the United States they are exclusive to Verizon. But this exclusivity is a little weird, as they are available unlocked from the Google Store.
Verizon has opened up pre-orders for both the Pixel and Pixel XL. As of this story going live, all colors and sizes are still up for grabs for delivery by the 10/20 launch day. Yes, even the limited edition and proving to be popular “Very Blue” color still had a solid shipping time.
The 32GB Pixel is $649 at full retail for $27.08 a month. The 128GB Pixel is $749 at full retail or $31.24 a month. As expected the Pixel XL has a higher price at $32.08 a month and $769 at full retail for the 32GB model. The 128GB Pixel XL comes in at $36.34 a month and a $869 at full retail. Plus Verizon customers will get a Daydream View for free.
The Pixel and Pixel XL are truly unique with software–they are the first phones to come with the new Google Assitant. Android 7.1 Nougat is clean, and these will be the first devices to get updated.
Both devices feature a 12.3-megapixel main camera, 32GB or 128GB of storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Processor with 4GB of RAM, and more. The difference is either a 5.0-inch Full HD display or a 5.5-inch WQHD display.
