Google's upcoming entries in the high-end smartphone market, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, are currently making some noise in the industry.

According to reports, the new Google handsets have what it takes to challenge the mighty iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Tech experts believe that Google's decision to eliminate the Nexus branding and release a new series could definitely raise the competition to another level. They also think that Google Pixel and Pixel XL will get the attention they deserve once both devices are already available.

Google has recently partnered with Verizon to help them with the release of its upcoming smartphones.  According to a report by Forbes, the partnership will certainly help the company to generate more sales because Verizon will also market the Google Pixel and Pixel XL to its current subscribers. As one of North America's most popular mobile carrier, Verizon has the right strategy and use its marketing prowess to make sure the new devices will get to a much larger group of consumers.

The current issue with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will also be an advantage for the American Search Engine company to release the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as it will narrow the consumers' choices in the market. According to industry experts, the new Google devices are now considered as one of the best alternatives for Samsung Galaxy Note 7 along with Apple iPhone 7 and the recently released LGV20.

Meanwhile, according to a report, the company is expected to generate more than 4 million Google Pixel and Pixel XL to be sold before the year ends. However, it is still far from the 60 million estimated sales of Apple's new iPhone 7 by the end of 2016. Nonetheless, it is already a huge accomplishment for Google considering that its new release is a Nexus replacement.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are already available for preorder and both are set to be released on Oct. 20.
