Google’s new Pixel line may be official in a matter of weeks. But a new leaked video, shared by Android Authority and Onleaks shows a 3D render video displaying the smartphone, codenamed Sailfish, from all angles.  

The HTC-made smartphone slightly resembles the HTC 10 with the exception the home button and rear fingerprint scanner. That is similar to Google’s Nexus 5x and Nexus 6P smartphones, which released last year.

Rumors expect Google has done away with its Nexus line for a new brand called Pixel . The tech giant is expected to release the Google Pixel (pictured in the 3D render leak) along with a larger device called the Pixel XL. Unlike pure-Android Nexus devices, the Pixel phones may have a custom user interface. A recent report suggests Google will rename its Google Launcher interface as the Pixel launcher.

Other leaks from the blog Android Pure showcase renders of the Pixel XL, codenamed Marlin, in a protective case. This device has a design identical to the Pixel render, only it is shown in a lighter color option.

Google is expected to announce the Pixel and Pixel XL, running Android 7.1 Nougat , o n O c t . 4 .
