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.

Where Can You Get A Pixel?

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.
