I like the idea black panel thing and the fingerprint sensor on the back, so i guess that's enough. But man there are so many other phone designs out there to be sharing so much in common with the iphone 6/7 at a distance. Sony, Samsung, LG, etc can definitely point to distinguishable flagships.
AnonD-312515, 27 Sep 2016Something tells me Google was behind it lol AFAIK It looks a like the HTC One A9. Definitely looks ugly, but design is subject to personal taste.
Nexus Brand, 27 Sep 2016Obviously you're not a Nexus user and you've never had one(I've owned 3).
OK, I understand th... moreDon't display crass ignorance!!! By inference, you understand just "basic" marketing law!!!
And FYI these are the Nexus phones I've used:
Nexus 4 (Used about 4 of them)
Nexus 5 (About same number as the Nexus 4)
Nexus 6 (Just one - too huge for me)
Nexus 6P (Bought gold one/sold got silver later)
I still have my Nexus S.
Currently using an iPhone 6S and waiting for the Pixel.
Now let us be judge....idiot talking anyhow!
AnonD-578789, 26 Sep 2016its just a render, ant tbh i love Stock android devices, they should all be stock. that way we... moreAs much as I want to agree with you I don't think that would be the right course of action to take, OEMs modify their skins because they want to differentiate from the crowd by offering new and exciting looks, features and optimizations, some of which are later adopted by Google and baked into their OS. If they all ran stock then Android would be as plain and boring as iOS.

OK, I understand thet the NEXUS brand doesn't mean anything to huawei, xiomi, samsung, htc,etc users.
Obviously you're not familiar with basic marketing laws for creating a recognizable brand or how u've said it ?...aaah 'distinct line';)
So please don't make me laugh with this copy/paste comments :D
Tero, 26 Sep 2016This is a google phone, not a nexus. Most likely Google did all the design work.hah right:D And where exactly is the zoogle design here?
ooh sorry, I saw it - the tiny stupid 'G' at the back, that is the zoogle contribution for sure :D:D

I see a little bit of the iPhone, but the two tone/material back looks more like the Apple TV 4 remote :)
Still, a really nice design. If the camera is great, it'll be a great Android phone.

At least Pixel doesn't have the camera sticking out the back like the iPhone 7 does. Thanks, GOOGLE.
