Google might have what it takes to take on Apple's iPhone with its Pixel smartphones. But when it comes to the colors of the devices, it's no Rose Gold or Jet Black.
The tech company unveiled its first "phone by Google" at a press event in San Francisco on Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Pixel and Pixel XL. This means instead of relying on companies like Samsung to manufacture the device, the Pixel is the "first phone made by Google inside and out."
There is much to be excited about over the Android smartphone, but it's the names of its color options that really have been the standout feature for the internet.
Google is offering the Pixel and Pixel XL in three different colors: Quite Black, Really Blue and Very Silver.
Nope, those aren't made up. Google really did decide to add those adverbs to the colors, for what we could only assume to be an attempt at giving the normal color choices a little bit of oomph. In reality, Google's decision to get descriptive caused for a great laugh.
The amount of sarcasm and comedy behind the smartphone colors wasn't lost on Twitter.
Wow, such colors for the new @Google Pixel phones.
Where is the "Somewhat Gold" option, though? pic.twitter.com/yYhQXSOoO1

Google #Pixel is available in 3 colors - Quite black, really blue, very silver. They should've added a 4th one named Almost iPhone. — Abdul Moeed (@derRestaurator) October 5, 2016
While it does appear like a very famous internet dog named the Pixel colors, the black and silver options are basic when it comes to hue, whereas Really Blue has been reported to be really bright blue in person.
Color aside, the Pixel does have some impressive specs that may have many wondering if getting that iPhone 7 Plus was a good idea.
The 5-inch Pixel and the 5.5-inch Pixel XL have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4 GB of RAM and run on Android 7.1 Nougat. The phones are the first to have Google Assistant built in, along with a fingerprint sensor and impressive 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Camera pros at DxOMark said that the camera on Pixel "is the best smartphone camera ... ever," a title Apple self-proclaimed for its latest iPhone. Google is sweetening the deal by giving consumers unlimited photo and video storage for free.
The Pixel retails for $649 and the Pixel XL for $769 - the same prices as Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
The Really Blue color will only be exclusively available in the United States for now, but will launch in other regions later.
And it seems like people really, really wanted it because the blue color is already sold out for both the Pixel and Pixel XL.
