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 Google Pixel phone features a "glass shade" on the upper part of the back and a Google "G" to denote who designed the phone.
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.
Fans of the decades-old 3.5 mm audio jack standard will be happy to see one on the Google Pixel phone.
Like 2015's Nexus phones, the Google Pixel (shown) and Pixel XL sport a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. Alongside are two speakers on the bottom of the phone.
Google Pixel phones feature a textured power button and a rocker switch for volume control on the right side of the phone, similar to last year's Nexus phone models.
At the upper middle of the Pixel back is a fingerprint reader. When you swipe it, it both unlocks the phone and shows your recent notifications.
Below the Pixel phones' "G" logo is one of several accents showing where antennas can harness radio signals.
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL both taper slightly, from 8.6 mm at the top end to 7.4 mm at the bottom.
The sides of the Google Pixel have chamfered edges.
On the left side of the Pixel is a SIM-card slot.
For the first time, Google's Pixel phones sport a Google "G" logo. The back of the phone has a bead-blasted finish.
The key highlights for the Pixel are Google Assistant, virtual reality, communications, storage and, of course, the camera.
Here's the camera module pulled apart.
DxO rated the camera an 89.

Using its fast performance, the camera is able to capture just the right moment shooting at 30 frames per second.
