In addition to announcing the Daydream View, Google’s first mobile VR headset to use the Daydream VR platform, Google has also announced Pixel – a new Android phone line, the first two models of which boast the first Daydream-ready hardware and software standards.

Google Pixel is the new replacement for the Google Nexus series of phones. The first two models come in a 5-inch Pixel, and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL. While the Pixel has a resolution of 1920x1080, the Pixel XL has a larger resolution of 2560x1440, making it the more desirable model for use with the Daydream View headset to lessen the screen door effect.
