    I was thinking that I hope they'll be announcing the 4k chromecast as well, but I'm not sure I'll need it...

    When i first read the title i though it was going to be privacy, that's a new thing for Google right?

    The last picture is two iPhones... Took the term "Think different" too literally.

    Congrats, the pixel phone now looks like a random Chinese iPhone knock off...

    Re: Google teases a "something new to love" event on 4th October

    This is one of those situations where I hope the rumors are not true, but they probably are

    I like my Huawei P9; it's a great phone and was a bargain at £300..but I would really like to go back to a Nexus type phone at some point. The last 2 were pretty poor imo (5X/6P) with the former being under powered and very "last generation", and the 6P being too big whilst also too expensive.

    I was really hoping we'd get back to a Nexus 4 or 5 level of quality and specs & style - even if we had to pay for it. Especially given the branding change to "pixel" which represents the top end chromebooks. Something special like a boarder less phone or something..but if we just get something like the leaked images then it's all very "meh". My P9 is already a great iPhone clone (even down to the screws and amount of glue thats been used), don't need another!

    HTC have done a great job with the Desire 10 though (from a design standpoint - the phone itself is woefully underpowered) so I do hold out some hope that the leaks are just early prototypes and something special is really on the way...

    Hoping these will be good. Loved my Nexus 5 - I'd still have it if I hadn't cracked the screen and then had issues with the replacement... Needs to be better than the 5X as that was disappointingly expensive for what it was. I just hope pixel doesn't equal expensive otherwise I'll have to stay away.

    Still using my Nexus 5 ....everything has just been too big and heavy ever since. Looking forward to seeing what the 5" Pixel X brings to the table.

    Why can't someone bring out a phone with the tight bezels of the LG G2? 5.2" screen and 70.9mm wide...

    I do miss my Nexus 5. I like my lg g4 but hate some of the lg stuff that i cannot remove and hate waiting for updates. I will most likely get the bigger pixel phone when my contract comes up for renewal next year.

    If we go by that picture at the top, then what're the old and the borrowed bits.

    I'm still clinging on to my Nexus 5 as well. So far, Google phones released later have been deeply flawed, whether through performance, pricing or both.
