Google has essentially confirmed this week that the company's new Pixel phones will be announced at an event on October 4th. But before Google can officially reveal what they've been working on in conjunction with HTC, a set of leaked images have allegedly revealed their entire design.
Judging by the images from Android Police, the 5.0-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL pack rather uninspiring designs. On the front, both look remarkably similar to Apple's iPhones, with huge bezels above and below the display. The back isn't quite like an iPhone, with a large glass area surrounded by metal housing the camera and rear fingerprint sensor.
Whoever has taken these photos has masked significant sections of the design, notably the area below the display, and a large section on the back. Some areas likely include identifying barcodes, however some branding and other elements could remain a mystery until Google finally announces them.
Speaking of announcements, late last night Google released a teaser for an event they're hosting on October 4th where the company will almost certainly announce the Pixel and Pixel XL. The 30-second video doesn't reveal much: it features a search bar outline transforming into a phone shape, flanked by "Oct. 4" and a modern Google logo.
This means we'll only have to wait two weeks before Google properly announces their Pixel handsets, which have been the subject of a huge number of leaks over the past few months. Hopefully Google has a few surprises left to reveal come October 4th.
