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

Recommended Posts

Wasn't it also one of the first devices to be able to go on any carrier regardless of the network being CDMA of GSM???

More like makes me further baffled by Sony at the odd decisions they make. Although I'm saddened by the lack of a true update to the Z Ultra. The XA Ultra I have is great, but it isn't a flagship premium model still.

No, many, many multi mode devices preceded the Nexus 5.  Otherwise, most international roaming would not have been possible for VZW and Sprint.

Good point. Totally forgot about international roaming....

Still rocking an N5 today, and it's still getting monthly security updates. The 5X seems like a nice sequel, but the specs didn't quite advance far enough to justify the cost, and it's a little big. So fingers crossed the smaller Pixel really pushes the envelope (and justifies its rumored price).

2770MAh battery probably won't do it for me this year. I'm not going below 3000 anymore. Although I miss flashing ROMs and such, I believe I will personally enjoy using the S7 one this new Nex-..ermmm.. Pixel. Hoping the rumored specs are wrong though.

I'll bet most likely nah! Spec error, would genuinely be surprised if it had one.

Hopefully one of the two devices have a sub $500 pricetag.

$650 starting price for the cheapest, I'd wager. I'll still probably do it, but not thrilled.

Not looking good. We'll see though. The specs are underwhelming on the leaked sheet. But I'll withhold judgement until the official specs are there. If the pricing is legit, it's making the Gs7 and HTC 10 look more appealing and even the Op3 and Axon 7 even more.

These leakers are traditionally very on point, so I don't there's much left to see. The only surprise which could help justify the price is a commitment to something like 5 years of updates. If you charge prices identical to the iPhones, you should support the products at least as long.

Commercial is great.

 

Edit: I guess I linked too soon! They took it down?

Is it really an exclusive when all carriers (presumably) have access to it through the play store

 

- I wonder if verizon will put their logo on the phone

If they want to purchase it through their carrier that's not Verizon yes.

Kind of disappointed when compared to my N6P. 

 

Main gripes: Looks too much like the iPhone (large bezels on top and bottom), and didn't touch on the speaker situation/setup (will have to wait for initial reviews).

No, not quite right.  VZW is the only US operator that will sell the handsets directly.  The unlocked handsets sold through the Google Store will be compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and most/all major world operators.

Do we know if we will need a new sim since it does LTE 3xCA? My bad if this was covered already.

SIM should not affect your CA connectivity.

      First Pixel device im somewhat excited about in a quite a while..

      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.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
