Next week, this is the device you’ll see Google announce.
It has been confirmed the company is set to reveal two phones, known internally as Sailfish (Pixel) and Marlin (Pixel XL), with minor differences. Google is believed to implement similar specifications across the two devices: a quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 12MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back.

Reports point to the Pixel having a 5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display while the Pixel XL raises the screen’s size to 5.5 inches and Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution. The Pixel XL will also have a beefier 3450mAh battery compared to its smaller sibling’s 2770mAh battery.
Both the Pixel and Pixel XL are going to be sold unlocked around the world, but Verizon will hold exclusive carrier selling rights in the United States.
Update: On Tuesday, Blass was at it again and leaked an image of the Pixel XL.
