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


Recommended Posts

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.

Would you guys (and gals) following the Pixel be interested in a raffle, like we did with the iPhone?  We were able to raise about a month's expenses on that raffle.  If we could get at least that muc

Oh wait a sec.    3x B41 CA confirmed.   

The rumors of our demise are greatly exaggerated.  With our new reduced rates from IP Board, we should be able to keep the site funded. So as long as S4GRU members are still using the site and staff

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.

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.

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.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      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.
