Good news Andriodistas! Google is doing a phone, and it’s coming soon. Google will livestream the announcement on its YouTube channel at 9am PDT on October 4—meaning the phone will be a libra, and therefore very balanced.
Earlier this month, Google also announced it was killing Project ARA, its modular phone project, likely because nobody wants a modular smartphone.
Hopefully, unlike Project ARA the Pixel will be a phone people want. It’s currently rumored to come in two sizes—the 5" Pixel and the 5.5" Pixel XL. Android Police predicts the Pixel will cost around $649. The site also posted leaked images of the phone earlier today.
This ostensibly is huge news for the Android lover. Congrats, Androidistas. You earned it.[Ars Technica]
