Pretty Pixels & Pixel 6/Pixel 6 Pro Leaks!

Google’s Pixel range has emerged as a solid choice when compared to the offerings from Samsung and Apple. With leaks now popping up for the Pixel 6, it’s no surprise seeing the Android developer trying their luck once again on a device and after the positive reception towards the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5, we certainly don’t blame them. While Samsung and Apple have recently been dominating the rumour mill it’s now Google’s turn, so read on and see what awaits us with the Pixel 6 plus be prepared for some Pixel puns.

Pixel Prosser

No article about tech leaks can be written without a mention of the legendary Jon Prosser, and for Pixel 6, FrontPageTech has delivered once again. He claims to have received actual images of the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, also confirming that Google has dropped the XL variant. To protect the reputation of the actual leaker, John has gotten renders created of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro images that were sent to him, and we have to admit that we’re gobsmacked by the design. There’s an elegant orange finish on both variants and even a champaigne coloured variant, with a design that can only be described as futuristic. It’s clear that this time, Google wants to compete with the flagships rather than just the mid-rangers. While information is still scarce on what else the Pixel 6 will be offering, the renders show that the Pixel 6 will include two cameras while the Pixel 6 Pro will include three. Leaks from Tom’s Guide state that we’ll see a 50MP main camera, an 8MP Periscope lens and 5x Optical Zoom. There’s even a “Steady-Cam” mode meant to work like a gimbal!  Whatever will be powering those cameras, you can be rest assured they’ll pack plenty of pixels (we couldn’t help ourselves there).



Live at the Chapel

In terms of what chip the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be using, a Snapdrag… wait scratch that. Rather than opt for Snapdragon in its new Pixel range, Google is looking to include its own custom chip called Whitechapel. 9to5Google reports that we’ll be seeing Google’s new custom chip in the Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro, which is also rumoured to be developed with Samsung. In terms of the chip’s capabilities, Android Authority states that according to leaker Max Weinbech, Whitechapel should be able to match Snapdragon 870, powering devices such as the Oppo Find X3 Series. In simpler terms, expect the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to provide an adequate flagship experience.


Pixel Count

Max Weinbech has also shared leaked specifications for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. According to him we’ll see a 120Hz refresh rate on both devices, with a Full HD+ resolution on the Pixel 6 and a QHD+ display on the Pixel 6 Pro. He also believes that we may see a 5000mAh battery on the Pixel 6 Pro, which would be an absolute necessity when 5G and 120Hz come to play. The purported specs surely show a return to flagship development for Google and dare we say that Samsung plus Apple should definitely pay attention.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro looks to be Google's triumphant return to face the flagships, and with a futuristic design alongside powerful specs it is definitely aiming to provide strong competition! With the rise of other manufacturers such as Oppo, the smartphone wars are heating up and as they say, a little competition can’t be bad as we’ve recently seen. For all the Google leaks as they come, keep a watchful eye on our Smart Blogs!
