Google Pixel and Pixel XL images leaked by carrier

Posted: 02 Oct 2016 03:57 PM PDT

Getting excited for Google's Pixel event? You've still got a couple of days to wait, but thanks to Canadian carrier Bell, the wait just got a little easier.

Bell today posted images of both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, with the former in white and the latter in black. The images look like official renders, and they're some of the better shots of the Pixels that we've seen yet.

Bell's webpages also specifically name these devices as Pixels, saying "Introducing Pixel, Phone by Google" and "Introducing Pixel XL, Phone by Google." That adds support to the rumors that Google's new phones will be branded as Pixels rather than Nexuses.

The pages appear to have been pulled from Bell's website, which isn't surprising since, you know, Google hasn't actually announced these Pixel phones yet. Google is expected to make them official on October 4, at which point we'll finally get their official spec lists and pricing info.

Based on what we've seen of them so far, are you interested in Google's Pixel phones?

A few days ago, Garmin announced its newest wearable for kids: the vivofit jr. Despite the name being in lowercase, it sounds like a pretty neat device. Garmin claims that it is water-resistant, comfortable, durable, and that it has more than a year's worth of battery life. Like other fitness trackers, the vivofit jr. will monitor the child's steps, sleep, and physical activity.

If you read through the announcement post on Garmin's blog, you will eventually get to a discussion on the vivofit jr.

Meerkat might be the app that started the live-streaming on phones trend. Released early last year, it quickly rose in popularity - even to the point of dominating that year's SXSW conference. But alas, Meerkat was not long for this world, and has officially been taken offline.

Life on Air, the company behind Meerkat, announced the shutdown on Twitter two days ago. The official reason for Meerkat's demise is for the company to focus on Houseparty, a group chatting application.

The Text-to-speech app doesn't see many major updates throughout the year, but when it does, there's often something interesting to see when it happens. Version 3.10 began rolling out yesterday and it comes bearing a pair of new settings to intelligently alter volume based on existing audio playback and to control the intonation of synthesized voices. As always, we've got a link below to grab the latest apk if you aren't among the first to get it straight from Google.
