Wow, everywhere you turn, there’s something about the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL floating around the internet. Today’s leak brings us renders of the two handsets and we must say, the design language is neat.
The Google Pixel and the Pixel XL look almost identical and it’s difficult to tell them apart based on just images.
