With just over a week left for Google to officially unveil its the Pixel and Pixel XL, Evan Blass (a.k.a @evleaks) has posted a press render of the smaller of the two handsets that Google plans on launching next week. The press render gives us our clearest look at the Pixel, which has so far only leaked in some blurry cam photos and renders.

In typical HTC style, while the Pixel will sport a 5-inch display, it has plenty of bezel space surrounding its display that makes it significantly bigger than what its display size suggests.

The press render shows off the new navigation button that Google will be debuting on its new Pixel smartphones with Android 7.1 Nougat. The home button will reportedly also animate when one will try to bring up Google Assistant/Now.

The 5-inch HTC-made Pixel will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a 2770mAh battery. It will also sport a 12MP shooter at its rear and an 8MP shooter in the front. Other specs of the device include a fingerprint scanner at the rear, a USB Type-C port, NFC, GPS, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Rumors peg that Google will be pricing the Pixel at $649, which will make it significantly more expensive than the Nexus 5X.
