Background and Identification
Announced on October 4, 2016 and released on October 20, 2016, the Google Pixel is Google's first true flagship phone. Google has previously co-developed the Nexus line of devices with other companies, but the Pixel is the first smart phone to be both fully designed and developed solely by Google.
The Pixel features a 5-inch 441 pixels per inch AMOLED display, but it is also available in an XL variant with a 5.5-inch 534 pixels per inch display. The rear mounted fingerprint sensor distinguishes the Pixel from most devices, as does the partial glass backing which allows for NFC capabilities.
There is an embossed "G" on the back of the device. The model number is G-2PW4100 in the US.
There was a known microphone issue with the device caused by a crack in the solder of the audio codec chipset on the motherboard, but Google has addressed the issue in devices manufactured after 02/2017.
The most often replaced Google Pixel parts include the battery, screen, and rear glass panel.
