It's like Christmas in October!

Remember when you were a kid and your parents let you have a birthday present a day early? That's kind of what Google just did for one lucky Pixel smartphone pre-orderer. 

Reddit user Wooparse ordered his 32GB Pixel, expecting it to arrive sometime after the official Oct. 20 launch date. Instead, the fancy new phone showed up at his door this week, and he's taken advantage of his good fortune by giving everyone a detailed look at the new device. 


For starters, Wooparse took some nice snapshots of the phone, along with a bunch of photos shot with the Pixel's camera, which has been hailed as the best of the best. But probably most interesting to potential Pixel owners and those who have pre-ordered the device already, Wooparse also shot some low-light videos in 60 frames-per-second, 30 frames-per-second, and even in ultra-sharp 4K resolution.  
You can dive into the full thread on Reddit for an extremely thorough rundown of various features of the Pixel, including menu contents and preferences. It should be enough to hold you over until the Pixel's official launch next week.

But what the leaks didn't reveal is just how desperate Google is to get you to switch from iPhone . Now we know.
