Pixel and Pixel XL, Phones by Google

Google has announced its Pixel and Pixel and XL to the public, and yes, it looks just like the leaks we saw. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are Google’s new “Android Standard baby” and come with some exclusive features as well, like Google Assistant EVERYWHERE.

With the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google plans to directly take on the other phone manufacturers, which is good for consumers due to it putting pressure on manufacturers to innovate more. Who is this not good for? Nexus fans. With the life of the Pixel, came the death of the Nexus. From now on, it looks like partners will just make the phone for Google; not have any input.
