Google Pixel XL looks super swish in this new 3D render

After months of rumours, speculation and leaks we’re less than a week away from the launch of Google’s Pixel phones on October 4. The stage is now set.

However, just when you thought you thought you’d seen it leaked from every angle, up pops a new 3D render of the larger HTC-made Pixel XL (codenamed Marlin).

The prolific Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @OnLeaks) has posted a new artist’s impression video based on what he says is the factory CAD file.

If the render is to be believed, we’re looking at one attractive handset, featuring the rumoured two-toned rear casing.

In an earlier tweet, OnLeaks also posted purported dimensions for the Pixel XL, claiming it’ll be 154.72mm x 75.74mm.

He also corrected the below tweet to claim it’ll be 8.5mm thick at the top and slightly tapered at the 7.3mm bottom.

The first Pixel phones look like Google’s new name for its Nexus range of own-branded devices and will arrive running the new Android Nougat OS.

Google looks certain to reveal them on October 4 alongside a new 4K-capable Chromecast Ultra dongle and a home router called Google Wifi.

We’re also expecting to hear from Google on pricing and availability of the Amazon Echo-rivaling Google Home speaker.

The event kicks off at 17:00BST next week and will last for more than 2.5 hours.
