Behold, the new Google Pixel phone. The back has a smarter fingerprint reader, an improved 12-megapixel camera, a Google G logo and a two-tone look with an antenna-friendly "glass shade" across the top.

The main camera on the Google Pixel (shown) and Pixel XL phones combines a 12-megapixel sensor built by Sony with an f/2.0 lens. Apple's iPhone 7 has an f/1.8 lens that lets more light through, but Google argues its larger sensor compensates by capturing more photons.

The front of the Pixel phones are white, but the overall phones come in "very silver," "quite black" and "really blue." On the upper-right corner is an 8-megapixel selfie camera that uses relatively large pixels for better low-light performance.
