Google is set to launch two of their newest phones on October 4 but just like every other major launch undertaken by a major manufacturer, Google’s shindig has been spoiled by massive leaks from retailers.

With the Nexus branding gone, what makes the two phones different from all the other excellent flagship smartphones being offered by Google’s OEM partners? Well, for one thing, the new phones will still have the purest Android experience that’s available in the market short of flashing a phone yourself, and will come loaded with Android 7.1 Nougat. Google’s also stuffing the two phones with their new messaging and videoconferencing app, Allo and Duo, respectively.

The new, smarter virtual Assistant will also be in the new phones, along with free unlimited storage at full resolution for Pixel users, a big upgrade from the default high quality option that’s typically offered in Google Photos.
