Good news Androidistas! Google is doing a phone, and it’s coming soon. Google will livestream the announcement on its YouTube channel at 17:00 UK time on October 4th, meaning the phone will be a libra, and therefore very balanced.
Google also announced in early September that it was killing Project ARA, its modular phone project, likely because nobody wants a modular smartphone.
Hopefully, unlike Project ARA the Pixel will be a phone people want. It’s currently rumoured to come in two sizes: the 5-inch Pixel and the 5.5-inch Pixel XL. Android Police predicts the Pixel will cost around $649, which converts to about £500 in GBP. The site also posted leaked images of the phone yesterday. [Ars Technica]
