Google is working on a new Pixel phone and it’s not Pixel 5a

Google back in October launched the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a smartphones. Now, word is that the company is working on a new smartphone called the Google Pixel XE.

While the details are scarce at the moment, however, images shared by a tipster who goes by the name Slash Leaks on Twitter has shared a bunch of images on the micro-blogging platform that not only tell about the existence of such a device but they also give us insights into the features that the phone is likely to come with.

For starters, the upcoming Google Pixel XE will come with slight bezels on all four sides and it will have a single selfie camera that will be stacked in the middle of the phone’s screen towards the top. The phone will come with two volume keys that will be stacked towards the right side of the display. It is also expected to get a 3.5mm jack that is placed towards the left side of the charging port, which in turn is located at the bottom of the phone.

As far as other features are concerned, the upcoming Pixel XE, as per the images, is tipped to get two SIM card slots along with an octa-core processor. Other features include NFC support and Nearby Share feature.

Beyond this, the phone remains a mystery as of now. We don’t know if the Pixel XE is a budget smartphone or a mid-budget smartphone — like the Pixel 4a — or what other features the phone would come with. Google hasn’t spoken about a potential new smartphone either. So for now, all we can do is sit tight and wait for tipsters to fill in the gaps.
