Google Pixel 6 series to offer 5 major software updates

The Pixel 5 was Google’s flagship last year, but it was really only a midrange phone in comparison to other brands’ best models. As for the design, it was borrowed from the Pixel 4a and had a relatively underpowered chipset. However, recent reports suggest that the tech giant is no longer holding back. Jon Prosser revealed its full specs about a month ago, after revealing renders of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Rumors:

Design and Display

A 6.71-inch LG plastic OLED will be featured on the Pixel 6 Pro, which is codenamed Raven, according to Prosser. OnLeaks claimed a 6.67-inch panel in previous leaks. This information does not match that claim. According to leaked renders, the selfie camera will have a cutout in the center. Minimal bezels surround the display. Curved edges give the display a premium appearance and feel. The higher refresh rate has not yet been announced.

In between the two colored stripes on the back of the Pixel 6 Pro is a camera module. This horizontal line that encompasses the rear camera setup has a noticeable bump to it.

Google Silicon Whitechapel

Google’s own chipset will power the phone as well. Pixel smartphones have been powered by Qualcomm silicon so far. However, earlier this year it was revealed that Google was collaborating with Samsung’s Exynos division for its own SoC called Whitechapel.

This silicon will be used in both smartphones (Pixel) and laptops (Chromebooks), just like Apple’s M1 chip. It has not been much discussed online except for reports that it has the codename “GS101” internally.

Triple camera setup

This is the first phone in the Pixel line to have three cameras at the back. Google’s previous camera setup relied on a dual-camera arrangement at maximum. In addition to a 50MP main camera and a 48MP telephoto lens, the triple camera configuration consists of a 12MP ultrawide sensor.

The module houses the camera, a flash, some sensors, and a microphone in addition to the camera.

Rest of the specs

For the first time, Samsung’s Pixel phones will come pre-installed with Android 12. Moreover, Prosser stated that Google will provide these devices with major upgrades for 5 years.

There will be two speakers on the Pixel 6 Pro, including a top-firing speaker and a bottom-firing speaker. An integrated 5,000mAh battery will provide the device with power, and wireless charging will be possible. This will be the first Pixel device to include an in-display optical fingerprint scanner for biometric security. Since Google began using fingerprint sensors on its smartphones, this technology has been built into the back of the phone.
