First up on the radar was Google’s new Pixel smartphones. The new Google Pixel and Pixel XL HTC manufactured phones feature that HTC/iPhone-esq look and feel with clean lines, familiar cellular bands across the back and aluminum uni-body design that arguably similar as any of the leading flagship smartphones on the market today.
The new Pixel is engineered with a seamless and bezel-less aluminum uni-body and glass design. It’s not visually super innovative and different but the design is clean and familiar.
