London (England), Oct. 3 (ANI): Google's own-brand phone Google Pixel has been revealed in promotional images by a UK phone seller Carphone Warehouse before the official launch on Tuesday.

Google is expected to unveil the new smartphones at an event on Tuesday along with the next version of Android Nougat 7.1, which will feature more of Google's conversational Artificial Intelligence in the form of Assistant , reports the Guardian

Both Apple and, now, Google have the edge of being able to develop both hardware and software simultaneously.

Most other smartphone manufacturers, including the world's largest Samsung, use Android but do not actively develop the software and only modify it, therefore, relying completely on Google for primary development.

Google has previously used Nexus series for its smartphones where it has partnered with manufacturers such as Huawei,HTC and LG.

According to the Guardian, leaked images captured by Android Police show two sizes of the phone -a regular and XL version, USB-C fast charging, a new interface, video calling and the Google Assistant, which was first launched within the company's Allo messaging app.

Both devices will have 32GB or 128GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, Qualcomm's latest 821 processor, AMOLED screens, fingerprint scanners on the back, an eight-megapixel front camera and a 12-megapixel camera on the back with optical image stabilization (ANI)
