Pixel and Pixel XL Preview (was "Fall 2016 Nexus | HTC Sailfish, Marlin Rumors")

Higher end to start at $350? That's not too bad. Are the rumors still pointing to both being made by HTC?

 

Yes, the rumors say both will be made by HTC and will be nearly identical, but for their physical dimensions. But I would expect the price to be higher.

S1 is the rumored lower end device...

The rumor regarding body materials came from a totally unproven site. No real reason to believe that given Android Police's track record and statement that "As far as we know, these phones are aluminum body, not polycarbonate." (Emphasis in original).

 

Also, nowhere have I read the phones will have different processors.

 

As for price, if the price is proportionate with the quality, I don't mind paying a little more.

AP has come out with some new pictures, looks like the S1 will be metal as well...

Is the smaller variant really going to have a 2770MAh battery? How come they can't just make it 3K+?!

 

Edit: appears to have a huge chin for no reason, judging by the latest leak.

Most relevant to this site, here are the bands, including Sprint's:

Would love to see a more detailed analysis.

Nah. This is all based on educated guesses, but:

This is pretty early for it to stop by the FCC for authentification does that mean this might be released earlier than October

Heh, If so, no 3xCA on B41 for sprint.

I wouldn't go and say that, same set as HTC 10

It doesn't mention any explicit CA combinations actually so it doesn't necessarily mean it's not supported! I'll take omission based on the fact that it is carrying possibly a Qualcomm 820 chipset. And keep my fingers crossed

It actually does.

Of course FCC does not mandate full disclosures down link operations so it may possibly be a latent capability but that possibility doesn't look to bright as HTC (for once in their lives) disclosed the CA combinations in the FCC filing.

Usually Google rolls out its next Android release such that the new Nexus (or Nexuses) gets it first; since at least one third-party device is advertising a September release with Nougat, that suggests the next Nexuses should be out in September too, if not late August.

I saw an article that seemed to indicate the LG V20 would be the first N device.

Id bet the LG phone is released before the Nexus ships, unless there was something amiss in the language from LG.

I saw the FCC document for both Marlin and Sailfish were recently released.  Will we see one of the excellent RF performance write-ups for these and the Note 7?  I'm hankering for an upgrade!

This is absolutely my next device. I miss HTC hardware but I love the stock software of Nexus devices so this fits the bill for me perfectly.

Not too fond of the size...it looks like the same size as the Nexus 5x for the smaller variant. We'll see if the specs WOW me. I'd really like wireless charging.

Uplink RF for both 2016 Nexus handsets looks just fair, nothing special.  Low band max ERP generally runs about 17 dBm, mid/high band max EIRP around 20 dBm.

Thanks, AJ.  I thought I must have been reading the report wrong because the numbers seemed far too low.  Disappointing to say the least.  Looks like I'll be skipping this round and crossing my fingers for the next batch.

I'd like to join the chorus of those hoping for an RF performance preview. Those analyses set S4GRU apart from the countless other Android blogs and forums. Thanks!

 

S4GRU is honored at the request, and we appreciate the praise.  However, an FCC OET tested RF article probably is not forthcoming.  For several reasons, the article series largely has been put to bed.

 

Our FCC OET articles used to attract easily over 10,000 readers.  That number has since dropped by around 75 percent, making the time and effort put into the articles seem less worthwhile.

 

And then on certain articles, people have gone on to say that we are "wrong," that handset X has strong or weak real world performance.  S4GRU cannot control the uplink RF figures submitted to the FCC.  To have people argue with them or dismiss them based on their personally biased experiences questions the reasons for writing the objective articles in the first place.

 

Finally, the gist of the RF measurements and capabilities (e.g. 3x CA, VoLTE, etc.) usually gets written into a preview or user thread anyway.

      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      Only specs I've really seen leaked are 5.7" screen and based on the unannounced "Mate 8" model.
       
      From http://www.breathecast.com/articles/nexus-2015-rumors-news-leaked-video-reveals-specs-of-purported-2015-huawei-nexus-video-30407/
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

      The Mate 7 had a 4100+mah battery, speculation is that this could have the same or bigger.
       
      Anything passed through the FCC for a US and/or Sprint version that covers the Spark bands?  I'm in the market for a new phone this fall and will be going off contract, buying a Nexus.

      Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!

      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
       
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
       
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
       
      What are everyone's thoughts?

    • I've had my Unlocked Coral Blue GS8+ since end of July and it's still going strong.  No software issues or weird shenanigans.  I attribute a lot of that to being on the Unlocked 955U1 firmware.  I still kept my 935U Galaxy S7 Edge and it too is going strong on the Unlocked firmware.   I think most of these issues are coming from Sprint messing with the ROM too much with their bloat and other crap. The only issue I've had so far was when Google updated their Google app, my battery began to drain a lot faster - ~5%/hr instead of the normal ~2%/hr.  A simple reboot took care of that.  Google is still my NUMBER ONE enemy for battery life.  I"m hoping Oreo will take care of Google.
    • FFS.      Now the power supply for our MB has seemingly failed.  When I first plugged it in, I thought the power supply seemed overly ‘noisy’ in that it made a constant hiss/buzz.  Woke up this morning to 2 bars of 1x, and the MB indicated it needed to be plugged in.  Receptacle tested fine.  Power Supply no longer makes any noise and smells a little suspect so Sprint is sending a replacement.  
    • you should get the phone! it has a amazing camera and the battery life ins phenominal!
    • I'm thinking they've closed off residential requests for now until they fill some of the orders. I know the link is around here somewhere, Google Sprint magic box, or try sprint.com/magicbox Currently, last I heard, it was business only...
