The Google Pixel XL was announced in October 2016. Google designed the device from top to bottom, while HTC provided the manufacturing. It shares the same hardware as the Google Pixel, with the exception of the larger display. The Pixel XL comes with a Gorilla Glass 4 coated 5.5" QHD AMOLED display, with a pixel density of 534ppi. Inside sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset, with quad-core 2.15GHz CPU, Adreno 530 GPU, and 4GB of RAM. It comes with a choice of either 32GB or 128GB internal storage, though lacks a removable storage slot. The rear shooter has a 12MP sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and 4K video recording, which uses an internal gyroscope for video stablilization, while the front selfie shooter has an 8MP sensor, f/2.0 aperture, and FHD video. The Pixel XL is powered by a non-removable 3450mAh battery, with fast charging capability. Other features include a USB Type-C connector, fingerprint sensor, and an aluminium unibody with a polished glass rear panel. The device is the first to feature Google Assistant, a voice activated assistant, that integrates Google now. It's also the first device to ship with Android 7.1.
