Google is not expected to announce its next flagship phones until sometime this fall, but now a recent leak may have just revealed the specs for the upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro months ahead of schedule.
Now before we go into the specifications themselves, it is important to note that these leaks are coming from Jon Prosser, which too late has had a tainted track record when it comes to leaks and predictions. That said, these new leaked specifications seem to be in line with previous rumors and forecasts, so while every detail may not end up being 100% accurate, this leak should give us a decent idea of what Google is working on later in the fall.
According to a “highly trusted source” who spoke to Prosser, the Pixel 6 line will be split into two different models, the standard 6.4-inch Pixel (codenamed Oriel) and the larger Pixel 6 Pro (codenamed Raven).
The standard Pixel 6 specifications are said to include:
- 6.4-inch Samsung-produced AMOLED screen
- 8 GB RAM
- 128 GB or 256 GB storage space
- 8-MP selfie camera
- 50 MP (primary) and 12 MP (ultra-wide) rear cameras
- 4,614 mAh battery
Meanwhile, the Pixel 6 Pro specifications are said to include:
- 6.71-inch LG-made POLED screen
- 12 GB RAM
- 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB RAM
- 12-MP selfie camera
- 50 MP (primary), 48 MP (telephoto) and 12 MP (ultra-wide) rear cameras
- 5,000 mAh battery
Both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are also expected to be powered by a custom Google chipset and will support Wi-Fi 6e and 5G connectivity.
Just by looking at the leaked specs, there are a few notable takeaways. The first is that with 4,614 mAh and 5,000 mAh batteries, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro would have by far the largest battery capacity of any Pixel yet, which should go a long way towards tackling a common complaint about the Pixel line: mediocre battery life.
But other than that, apart from the standard Pixel 6, which only has two rear cams, it feels for once that Google is not saving on hardware for its upcoming Pixel, which stands in stark contrast to last year Pixel 5 which did not even try to compete with other advanced Android phones. Personally (and I’m sure I’m not the only one), one thing I & # 39; ve wanted Google to do for a long time is put a greater focus on specifications and hardware, and if these leaks are correct, look it seems that can finally happen with Pixel 6. Google even brings a dedicated tele-camera back to the Pixel 6 Pro, which we have not seen on a Pixel page Pixel 4.
Unfortunately, there is still no word on an exact price or release date for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, though Prosser says we should keep an eye out for more info in October.
In addition, there is another Pixel that is rumored to be on the way even before Pixel 6 comes out. Just this week, it Pixel 5a was seen in a archiving with FCC (via Android Police), suggesting that we could see a specific release date in the near future, probably before Pixel 6 comes out in the fall.
Aside from some light information about sub-6Ghz 5G support, there are not many details regarding Pixel 5a’s specifications. Previous rumors have suggested that the Pixel 5a will include a 6.2-inch OLED screen, two rear cameras (including an ultra-wide camera) and possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor.
Either way, Google has been relatively quiet about new devices over the spring and summer so far (except Pixel Buds Series-A), and it’s starting to feel like the company could prepare for a huge wave of new gadgets later this fall, so keep an eye out for more information when we get it.
