After some of the most intense leaks of a new phone to date, we have finally seen the Google Pixel and Pixel XL for real. Here's how much they'll set you back in Australia, and when you can get your hands on them.

You'll probably notice from the cold, hard specs alone that it's all a tad underwhelming. Sure, they're not as dear as an Apple or a Samsung flagship, but they're also not cheap.

Both of these devices have 4GB RAM and storage that caps at 128GB with no MicroSD for further expansion. Plus, they there’s the somewhat disappointing 2,915 battery on the smaller device. Besides the camera upgrade (super res zoom and dua front facing cameras are pretty cool), I'm just not seeing a whole lot of future-proofing or much to get excited about in the raw numbers.
