5-inch Google Pixel phone doesn’t show us much in latest full-frontal leaked render

Surprises and revelations are probably overrated, with beforehand knowledge of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL designs and specifications, for instance, possibly helping (too) early Galaxy Note 7 adopters make the right call when faced with an exchange or refund.

And yes, the aggressively hyped Nexus replacements will contend both high-end Samsung handhelds and iPhones in the mainstream flagship arena, although Verizon may score exclusivity in terms of physical retail presence.

Following in the footsteps of the LG-manufactured N5X, the smaller HTC-produced Pixel, aka Sailfish, is rumored to cost $650 outright through the official US Google Store with only 32GB storage, a 5-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 820 or 821 processor, 4GB RAM, 12/8MP cameras, a headphone jack (huzzah!), fingerprint scanner, and USB Type-C port.

This was all part of a grand Android Police exposé a while back, and every single speculated tidbit is reiterated by Venture Beat’s Emil Protalinski and Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, now that a fresh new full-frontal render makes its way around the interwebs.

The actual image, though clear as they come, doesn’t tell us much, besides hinting at an extremely minimalistic, so-called “vanilla” Android 7.1 Nougat look. The screen bezels are relatively thick, the “chin” needlessly so, and overall, we’re getting a strong Nexus 5X vibe from this purported Google Pixel, which is by no means a bad thing.
