Google Find My Device
If you previously enabled it, log in to Google Find My Device to view your Google Pixel’s model name.
If you need additional information like your model number, capacity and carrier, click the “question mark” icon and copy your phone’s IMEI. Then, paste it into an IMEI checker tool like IMEI.info. The tool will display your model name, number and capacity, plus give you the option to perform a free carrier check.
Use your carrier’s website
Log in to your carrier account and browse to your devices to find identifying information about your Google Pixel. On Verizon, for example, you can browse to “My Devices” and then “Manage Device” to view your phone’s model name, capacity, device ID and IMEI number.

Check the box or sales receipt

You can also try searching your email inbox and retailer account pages if you don’t have a paper receipt.
Look on the SIM card tray
Eject the SIM card tray to find your Pixel’s IMEI number, then input it into an IMEI checker tool (IMEI.info is one option). As mentioned, the tool will display information like model name, number and capacity.
