It’s possible that the Google Pixel 6 series won’t be released for another few months. However, leaks continue to stream through, and a new one has disclosed the crucial specifications of both Pixel 6 smartphones. To keep you informed, we’ve compiled a list of everything we know about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro so far.
If the leaks are to be believed, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro could be the two most interesting devices to be released this year. These smartphones are likely to arrive with all-new designs and improved hardware. In addition, Google is rumored to be working on an in-house microprocessor dubbed “Whitechapel.”
A few specifications were mentioned, but no comprehensive spec sheet was accessible. However, a new leak has surfaced, revealing the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro’s features. These gadgets will include OLED panels, 50-megapixel primary cameras, and significantly larger batteries, according to the leak.
The Pixel 6 series is expected to launch in October this year, as is customary for Google. Despite the fact that the debut is still a few months away, we already know a lot of information regarding these smartphones. With that in mind, we’ve decided to go over everything we’ve learned so far about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 specs and features
The XL variant was missing from last year’s flagship Pixel 5, but that could change this year. As several leaks suggest, the Pixel 6 will be larger. However, the XL designation is expected to be replaced with Pro, implying that the Pixel 6 Pro would be the top-of-the-line Pixel. Google has been using the XL label for a long time, and it’s difficult to see why they would want to do so.
Moving on to the Pixel 6 series design, which is slated to undergo a significant change. The suspected design has been confirmed by two well-known tipsters, meaning the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are likely to have the same design. 91mobiles collaborated with Onleaks to reveal renders a while back. These renderings are similar to the previously leaked Pixel 6 renders.
The device appears to have an elevated camera strip that runs the length of the smartphone, based on what we’ve seen so far. The device also lacks a capacitive fingerprint reader and has a dual-tone finish on the back. On the other hand, it has a punch-hole display in the center on the front. The bezels have been reduced as well, but there is still a noticeable chin at the bottom. The Pixel 6 is also said to have a fingerprint scanner built into the display for authentication. The Android DP 2 code contained evidence of its inclusion. So there’s a chance there’s a case to be made.
9to5Google discovered some interesting facts about the Pixel 5a and Pixel 6 a few months ago. According to the report, these devices will have a smaller punch-hole camera. Aside from that, it says the front camera will be in the center of the screen. This corresponds to the current renders. Persuading us that the rumored punch-hole placement is correct.
Jon Prosser has revealed the key specifications of both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in a new leak. In terms of the Pixel 6, the standard model is expected to have a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. In addition, the device could come with dual rear cameras, one with a 50-megapixel primary sensor and the other with a 12-megapixel ultrawide sensor. On the other hand, it is expected to have an 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front. The device will be powered by Google’s own chipset. And it’s compatible with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Furthermore, this smartphone may be powered by a 4614mAh battery.
The Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to have a larger 6.71-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. A 50-megapixel primary camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto sensor are expected to be included in the smartphone’s triple rear camera setup. On the front, it could come with a 12-megapixel camera for selfies. It is also expected to include the in-house chipset, which could be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB of onboard storage, just like the standard model. Finally, the Pixel 6 Pro is expected to come with a 5,000mAh battery.
This year at Google IO, the software behemoth revealed that it has been working on improving the computational software that drives its cameras. The company demonstrated how it works with image experts to achieve better results when photographing people of various skin tones. That, we believe, is only a small part of the software change we learned about, and the Pixel 6 will see a slew of other improvements that will elevate its camera to new heights.
The inclusion of the in-house chipset is one of the most significant changes on the Pixel 6 series. According to reports, Samsung is working on a chipset codenamed Whitechapel. Furthermore, the chipset is referred to as the GS101, with GS standing for “Google Silicon.” It’s also an octa-core ARM CPU with two Cortex-A78 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores. This will be paired with an ARM Mali GPU and manufactured on Samsung’s 5nm process.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro launch date
Every year in October, Google announces its flagship Pixel devices at its annual event. The current Pixel 5 was released on September 30 of last year, and the Pixel 6 lineup is expected to follow suit.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro India price
The pricing of the upcoming Pixel 6 models is also unknown, just like the launch date. However, given the anticipated changes, we anticipate a significant price increase for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. In terms of pricing, the Pixel 6 is expected to start at Rs 55,000, while the Pixel 6 Pro will cost Rs 65,000.
