According to a post on Twitter from David Ruddock of Android Police, Google Pixel XL will reportedly be priced at $649.
To recall, Google introduced its first smartphone, the Nexus One, in January 2010. They partnered with HTC to make the handset. Over the years Google has partnered with several Android smartphone and tablet makers to produce its Nexus lineup. Now the company is going solo and perhaps putting an end to the Nexus brand.
Rumours have been around for several months but the first concrete evidence for the existence of Pixel phones came when Google changed the name of the of Nexus Launcher on Google Play Store.
