The first smartphones designed end to end by Google — Pixel and Pixel XL — are coming to Telstra.

As the exclusive telco partner for both phones in Australia we’re really looking forward to showing you what these phones are capable of our network.

Getting personal

Our smartphones are our most personal piece of technology, they’re with us all day and now they’re getting even more personal with the introduction of virtual assistants. Pixel is the first smartphone to launch with super-smart Google Assistant and I think it’s going to change the way owners use their phones. This intelligent software will allow you to have a natural conversation with your phone to get advice on everything from the fastest route to the theatre to the perfect place to enjoy a meal after the show.

The camera can capture crisp images even in low light. It’s quick to launch and fast to shoot too. Also, you won’t need to worry about making room for new memories by deleting old ones, as Pixel comes with unlimited high resolution photo and video online storage via Google Photos.

Is it a bird? It’s a plane? No it’s a smartphone!

Next gen smartphone connectivity (Cat 11 LTE) makes Pixel and Pixel XL Australia’s fastest smartphones for mobile data speeds and this speedy connectivity makes Google Assistant a more powerful, real-time companion.

With Cat 11 LTE, you can expect typical speeds of 5Mbps – 200Mbps in 4GX areas in general, but in CBD areas of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, where our network is fully enabled to make the most of Cat 11 device capability, may reach even higher peak speeds from time to time. With the upper end of the typical speed range for this device you could download a 3GB HD movie in as little as two minutes.

Get it at Telstra – first!

Aussies will be the first in the world to get their hands on Pixel or Pixel XL when they launch at Telstra on 20 October.

Both smartphones will be available in Very Silver and Quite Black on a range of Go Mobile Plus and My Business Mobile plans in 32GB and 128GB variants. To find out more about pricing or to pre-order Pixel, a phone by Google, before it hits our stores just head this way.
