Specs and Features

The base pixel model of 32 GB internal storage costs around $649 in the United States but here in India it is priced as $855. The core reason of this price difference is heavy import duties which our Indian government imposes on smartphones so that it can be locally manufactured.

Pixel comes with 5-inch full-HD display and whereas the Pixel XL comes with 5.5-inch QHD screen.
