Wiki Info: Pixel uses an aluminum chassis, with a glass panel on the portion of the rear housing the camera and “Pixel Imprint” fingerprint sensor. The phones have a USB Type-C connector supporting USB 3.0, for power and data exchange. The phone features a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which received media attention for being a contrast to competing smartphone Apple iPhone 7, which does not feature the port. The Pixel and Pixel XL both use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 system-on-chip, with 4 GB of RAM. They are offered with either 32 GB or 128 GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage. The two models are differentiated by screen and battery size; the standard Pixel’s display measures 5 in (130 mm) 1080p AMOLED with a 2770 mAh battery, while the Pixel XL’s display measures 5.5 in (140 mm) 1440p AMOLED with a 3450 mAh battery.
