Google Pixel XE live images show thick bezels, punch-hole cutout, and more

Highlights
  • Google Pixel XE live images show a hole-punch cutout for selfie camera
  • The handset’s display can be seen with thick bezels on all sides
  • Google Pixel XE has shown up for the first time with this leak

Google Pixel XE live images have reportedly surfaced online. Interestingly, this is the first time that we are hearing of Google Pixel XE as there had been no leaks or even rumours about this phone until now. The leaked live images of the phone, unfortunately, do not reveal a whole lot but suggest that the phone will come with thick bezels around the display, which is rather unusual by modern smartphone standards. The images also suggest that the alleged Google Pixel XE will come with a punch-hole cutout at the top to house the selfie camera at the front. Apart from the design aspects, the images show the ‘About Phone’ and Connectivity sections, which seemingly confirm the support for NFC as well.

Finally, the images of the alleged Google Pixel XE also reveal that the phone comes with two SIM card slots. That’s pretty much all we can say about the phone from the leaked images. We would like to point out that this leak is not coming from a credible source and should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt. On the other hand, Pixel phones in past have leaked months ahead of their official unveiling, so we cannot completely deny the authenticity of the leak either. Considering that the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 smartphones were launched only recently, we might still have a lot of time on our hands before Pixel XE, if it is even a genuine product, is made official.

In other news, Google recently launched Pixel 4a Barely Blue colour variant of the handset in the US. The Pixel 4a Barely Blue colour option is being offered in a single 6GB + 128GB model and has been priced at $349 (around Rs 26,000).
