Google’s Pixel Smartphone is Here

Earlier this month, Google introduced their first “made by Google” smartphone – the Pixel. It comes in two sizes: the 5″ Pixel, or larger 5.5″ Pixel XL. Simply put, the Pixels have top of the line specs, and are tuned for software and hardware performance – all of which put the Pixels right up there with Samsung and Apple.

Some Key Pixel Features

  • Bright, hi-res AMOLED displays with Gorilla Glass 4
  • Fast performance with Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB RAM
  • High-rated, fast camera for photos & video (Google claims the camera has “best-ever 89 DxOMark Mobile score”)
  • Unlimited photo & video storage at full resolution
  • Google Assistant – Google’s interactive AI app
  • Quick charge (Google claims up to 7 hours of battery life with 15 minutes charging)
  • Free 24/7 Tech Support built-in to the phone
  • Android 7.1 (currently only on Pixels)

You can find more details about Pixel smartphones on the Made By Google and Google Store webpages.

You can purchase Pixels in full or with a payment plan at any of these places:

If you buy a Pixel phone unlocked from the Google Store, you can use it with any wireless provider.

Also, T-Mobile currently has a deal if you sign up for T-Mobile One. See details here: T-Mobile offers up to 50 percent off your Pixel purchase, but there’s a catch.
