Google Pixel phone leaks again – this time in blue
Google is preparing to unveil its new handsets today, and the world is just quivering in anticipation of its first glimpse of the handsets.
At least it would be if the phone hadn’t been leaked 27,000 times. And if you still haven’t got your fill of pre-release photos of the Pixel and Pixel XL, here’s some more for ya.
Reputable tipster Evan Blass, otherwise know as @evleaks, has posted a shot of the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets, revealing a new deep blue colour option.

Yes, it seems we can expect a lovely indigo finish to accompany the usual black and white/silver hues when the phone launches later today.
Blass didn’t provide any other information to accompany the image, but thankfully today’s leakage isn’t limited to this one tweet.
Over in the US, carrier Verizon’s Enterprise division briefly listed the Pixel and its larger XL counterpart on its website (via AndroidAuthority).
Now removed, the pages seemingly reveal pricing details for the phones, with the Pixel 32GB listed as costing $199 on contract, and the 128GB option listed at $299.

As AndroidAuthority explains, that works out at a SIM-free price of about $600-$649 (around £470 to £508) for the 32GB option, judging by Verizon’s previous pricing approach.
The XL 128GB offering is listed with an on-contract price of $419.99, leading the report to conclude the phone will cost around $850 (around £666) unlocked.
What’s more, the Verizon listings mention something called Google Magic, which remains a mystery at this point but could refer to the phone’s Google Assistant capabilities.
All will be revealed at tonight’s launch event, which kicks off at 5pm BST. You can find out how to keep up with developments here.
