Google has introduced two new high end phones called Google Pixel and Pixel XL. “High end” definition here doesn’t just stick to the specifications but also to the price. The price of the new Google phones are very much comparable to Iphones. Google Pixel family of Mobiles hardware and software are made by Google itself.

From Google blog:

Today, we announced for the first time a family of products that brings people the best of Google through hardware and software made by Google. We’re excited that the lineup features the first phone made by Google inside and out — Pixel.

For those of you who have followed Google closely, that name may sound familiar to you because we’ve used the Pixel name in the past for consumer hardware products that represented an overall premium Google experience. Many of you may also be familiar with the Nexus program. Since 2010, we’ve partnered closely with mobile handset partners around the world to bring you the best of Android. Through Nexus, the goal was to work with these various partners to push the boundaries of what’s possible with a smartphone. We’ve now decided to take the next step and provide our take on the best Google experience, by bringing hardware and software design together under one roof.
