Now Carphone Warehouse Has Tried to Ruin Google's Pixel Party

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

If Carphone Warehouse suddenly and mysteriously disappears from the first page of Google’s search results for the term ‘carphone warehouse’ in the near future, here’s why. The retailer (presumably) accidentally published the details of the Pixel and Pixel XL, which are due to be unveiled at an event tomorrow.

The listings, which have now been pulled offline, showed off images of the handsets, alongside specs.

According to Carphone Warehouse’s intel, the Pixel is a 5-incher with a Full HD display, a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 processor and either 32GB or 128GB of storage, though we’re not convinced that this will be expandable through a microSD slot, as the retailer claims. It’s also expected to use a 12-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera and a 2,770mAh battery.

The XL, meanwhile, will apparently feature a 5.5-inch QHD display and a 3,450mAh battery. Both handsets will likely feature 4GB of RAM, Android 7.1 Nougat and come with unlimited photo backups, at maximum resolution, through Google Photos.

Unfortunately, they’re unlikely to come cheap and aren’t exactly what we'd describe as pretty (or even interesting-looking). [Android Police]
