Specs and other details of Pixel devices leaked a day before Google’s big launch event

Specs and other details of Pixel devices leaked a day before Google’s big launch event

We’re still one day away from Google’s big launch event where we are expecting our favorite tech giants to make a bunch of exciting announcements that include their new Pixel lineup for smartphones, Chromecast Ultra and a host of other devices. With all major launch events, you do expect a couple of leaked (rendered and sometimes actual) images of the devices that will be launched especially when it comes to smartphones. Same was the case with the Pixel devices, as our friends at Droid Life managed to get their hands on the complete details of both devices that are going to launch on Oct 4th, 2016. The following details have been extracted from the websites of various retailers but the one thing that is still to be made sure is the pricing and availability of the devices. Here is the info from Carphone Warehouse’s site: What are the takeaways from all of that? A few things stand out. For one, CW is referring to this as the “first standalone phone” from Google, which matches up with the #madebygoogle hashtag they are advertising it with. Even though HTC may have built these phones, Google must be looking at that relationship as nothing more than a manufacturer and not a partner. From there, CW talks about two sizes (Pixel and Pixel XL), having access to Google Assistant everywhere with the “OK, Google” command (not just in Allo), unlimited full resolution storing of photos through Google Photos, a “Smart Storage” feature to help you automatically clean up space on your phone, good low light photos from the camera, access to Google Duo and Allo (which is not unique to these phones), fast charging with USB Type-C (7 hours of battery in 15 minutes), and custom Live Cases like we saw for the Nexus 6P and 5X. Here are the specs according to CW: Pixel Pixel XL Software Android 7.1 Android 7.1 Display 5″ FHD AMOLED (1920×1080, 441ppi) Gorilla Glass 4 5.5″ QHD AMOLED (2560×1440, 534ppi) Gorilla Glass 4 Processor 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 (quad-core, 64-bit) 2.15GHz Snapdragon 821 (quad-core, 64-bit) RAM 4GB 4GB Camera Rear: 12.3MP (f/2.0, 1.55um), Image stabilization Front: 8MP Rear: 12.3MP (f/2.0, 1.55um), Image stabilization Front: 8MP Battery 2770mAh Fast charging 3450mAh Fast charging Storage 32GB or 128GB No microSD support 32GB or 128GB No microSD support Other Fingerprint scanner, NFC, 3.5mm headphone, USB Type-C Fingerprint scanner, NFC, 3.5mm headphone, USB Type-C Dimensions 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.6 mm 143 grams 154.7 x 75.7 x 8.6 mm 168 grams SIM Nano Nano Here are two new press renders, courtesy of  Telus: (Pixel vs. Pixel XL) Those two images aren’t revealing much new, but the Google...

Could these be the new HTC Nexus Phones ? [Rumor]

Could these be the new HTC Nexus Phones ? [Rumor]

The world is anxiously waiting for the arrival of Google’s upcoming Nexus devices which are expected to be officially announced in the next few months. There were rumors floating around since quite some time that HTC would be manufacturing this year’s devices code-named Nexus Marlin and Nexus SailFish and from what it seems now, those rumors are definitely taking shape. Techconfigurations has created a 3D render (based on leaked images) of both the devices. While the leaked images that we’ve seen so far have shown off the front and back of the two phones, it’s speculated that both devices will feature the same basic design elements. The 3D render does take some creative liberties since there are not images which show off the edges of the phones. These are just early renditions of both the devices and we’re not exactly sure as to how the actual devices would turn out but the video does give us a fair idea of what to expect. So what do you guys think about the two upcoming Nexus devices? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below....

WhatsApp Video Calling feature to arrive in Q1 2016 – [Rumors]

WhatsApp Video Calling feature to arrive in Q1 2016 – [Rumors]

Now here’s a feature everyone’s been anxiously waiting to get their hands on since quite a while now and if these rumors are indeed true, then you just might get to use it sometime next year. That’s right folks, according to MacerKopf, our friends from Germany, WhatsApp are currently working on a major update that is expected to be rolled out sometime in the first quarter of 2016 and one of the major attractions of this update would be video calling. Since its launch some 6 years ago, the instant messaging client has been one of the most used and downloaded applications among all major platforms including Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows, Symbian devices and many more. The application has further developed a huge fan base since the last year or so especially with the introduction of its free voice calling feature but the one thing that eluded fans was the option for video calling (a feature currently being dominated by its major competitors like Viber and Skype). This trend might very well be about to change if these rumors indeed turn out to be true. As for now, we have just managed to get our hands on a leaked image of what the video calling feature of WhatsApp might look like. We’ll be following up with this story in the weeks to come so do stick around. In the mean time here’s wishing you all a very happy Happy holiday season from all of us here at Talk Android Phones. Stay blessed you guys…Cheers...

Android 6.0 or M to come with Multi-Window Feature [RUMOR]

Android 6.0 or M to come with Multi-Window Feature [RUMOR]

Every year Google comes up with its new edition to the Android family naming them after tasty deserts. The names usually are alphabetical so after J, K, L now its the turn for “M”.  So, it would go as Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lolipop and now rumored to be Muffin. This is still early days, as most devices are still stuck on KitKat and yet have to see Android 5.0 or 5.1 Lollipop.  According to rumors, Google’s next Android version a.k.a Android 6.0 or Muffin, will come with an updated but not likely redesigned Material UI.  Not only that Android 6.0 will be coming with a few bag of goodies as well, namely a Multi-Tasking (Multi-Window) feature.  This will be pretty handy considering the larger display devices in the market these days like the Nexus 6. Their is no official word on what exactly will Android “M” be called, could be Muffin or like they did with KitKat, maybe it could be Mars, who knows. Only thing that is for sure is that Android 6.0 will be something to look out for at the end of 2015. Till then let us know what name do you suggest for Google’s next Android...

This is what the Samsung GALAXY S6 might look like – [Leaked Prototype Images]

This is what the Samsung GALAXY S6 might look like – [Leaked Prototype Images]

With the Mobile World Congress less than a month away, everyday we see new rumors surfacing about various OEMs and their next big flagship devices that are to e announced at the mega annual event in Barcelona commencing from March 2nd. A few days back we had mentioned about Samsung’s next flagship device or should we rather say devices now since according to some very strong rumors, Samsung are releasing not one but two variants of its long running line of GALAXY S series with the release of the GALAXY S6 and the S Edge which in our opinion should be somewhat similar to the  Galaxy Note Edge. As of today, our friends at Phone Arena have got their hands on what looks like a prototype of Samsung’s next flagship device. How far these pics are close to the real deal we don’t actually know but if it is in fact true, then the S6, as mentioned earlier, would be wrapped in a metallic uni body frame with a glass rear coating. These are still very early (leaked) images of the device but from the looks of things, they do look quite similar to the GALAXY Alpha series. For now, we’ll just have to wait patiently for the MWC. We’ll keep you guys posted on any further updates and rumors so do stick around. Cheers !!  ...
