Google trolls ‘Pixel Ultra’ hopefuls with ‘mini Pixel’

With the launch of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL less than a week away, Google is officially ramping up the hype for its new devices. The company’s @madebygoogle Instagram account shared an image which portrays a “mini Pixel” with a caption that reads “We’ve heard rumors of a mini Pixel. Which begs the question how “mini” is too mini?” The image shows off a few phone mockups of various sizes while also including a sketch of a mini Pixel that’s small enough to be attached to your keyring.
Since there have not been any rumors regarding a small Pixel 3 device, the Instagram post is obviously directed squarely at the Pixel Ultra speculation that popped up a few weeks back. 
On a personal note, I’d actually be more intrigued by a Mini Pixel than I would a Pixel Ultra. Last years I purchased the regular Pixel 2 and plan on picking up the Pixel 3 instead of the Pixel 3 XL. While large devices are great for consuming media or playing games, I prefer smaller devices since they fit better in my pocket and are generally more conducive for one-handed use.
If you had to choose between a Mini Pixel or a Pixel Ultra, which one would you prefer?

We’ve heard rumors of a mini Pixel. Which begs the question how “mini” is too mini? We have a feeling the next one will be a bit bigger than this. Tune in on 10/9 to see for yourself. #madebygoogle . . Doodle by Google hardware designer, @jac.bae.
