After having some terrible time with its Pixel smartphone, Google took a safe route for the Pixel lineup for the last couple of generations. However, it seems like Google is getting back in the game this year with the Pixel 6 series.
Jon Prosser is back again, now with the Google Pixel 6 renders, showing us how the upcoming Pixel smartphones could look. Yes, smartphones, as the upcoming Pixel series is expected to bring two models – the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 X̶L̶ Pro.
The Pixel 6 design emphasises the camera island, and it looks a bit out of Robocop world. The camera module is enormous and protrudes out of the mainframe. The new design is quite unusual as we’d seen Pixels coming out with a dull design.
So what’s the difference between Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro?
The first difference between both of them will be the size. The Google Pixel 6 seems smaller in size, while the Pixel 6 Pro looks a tad bigger, replacing the ‘XL’ from the lineup. Another evident difference is the number of cameras in both smartphones. The vanilla Pixel 6 seems to have two cameras, while the Pro has three cameras. There’s no word on the sensors yet, but hopefully, the Pixel 6 gets the new sensors.
The front is also looking very modern, with almost no bezels present in the picture. The front-facing camera is housed inside a centred hole-punch cutout. We can also Google to finally get rid of rear-mounted fingerprint sensor favouring an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Prosser’s track record is quite good, but he’s damn unfamous in the space. However, Android Police’s Max Weinbach later confirmed the renders. Weinbach backed up the design, but according to him, the colours are not accurate.
Earlier, folks from 9to5Google reported that Google would use in-house SoC in the Pixel 6, dubbed as ‘GS101.’
Here’s the full video from Prosser, where you can have a look at both the Google Pixel’ from every possible angle.
