A reputable leaker has reportedly given us our first look at the renders and specs for Google’s new Pixel 6 Pro and hoo boy, it looks good.
While Google has remained tight-lipped about the device during this week’s I/O, leakers have been quick to reveal everything they know so far.
According to leaker OnLeaks, who revealed his insights to Digit.In, the Google Pixel 6 range (including the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro) could arrive later this year, which is good news considering the Pixel 5a isn’t even coming to Australia.
So without further ado, lets take a look at what we know so far about the Pixel 6 Pro.
In addition to leaking the specs of the upcoming Google Pixel 6 Pro, OnLeaks also shared some sweet renders that have given us our first real look at the new phone.
Design-wise, the Pixel 6 Pro is a beautiful device. The company has totally resigned the look and feel of the phone, but still remained on-brand with a stunning dual-tone orange and white design.
From the look of the renders, it also appears the SIM card slot might be moved to the left side of the device, which is a minor change – but a change nonetheless.
The screen will also have almost non-existent bezels, which maximises screen size on the device which is already an absolute beast of a phone (measuring roughly 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 millimetres, compared to the iPhone 12 Max at 160.8 x 78.1 x 7.4mm).
Google Pixel 6 Pro Specs
Update July 12:
Renowned leaker Jon Prosser has dropped what is said to be the specs for the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro:
The standard Pixel 6 specs are said to include:
- 6.4-inch Samsung-made AMOLED screen
- 8GB of RAM
- 128GB or 256GB of storage
- 8-MP selfie cam
- 50-MP (primary) and 12-MP (ultra-wide) rear cams
- 4,614 mAh battery
Meanwhile, the Pixel 6 Pro specs are said to include:
- 6.71-inch LG-made pOLED screen
- 12GB of RAM
- 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of RAM
- 12-MP selfie cam
- 50-MP (primary), 48-MP (telephoto), and a 12-MP (ultra-wide) rear cams
- 5,000 mAh battery
It also seems that both devices will have a custom Google chipset as well as Wi-Fi 6E and 5G support.
According to OnLeaks, the Pixel 6 Pro is set to feature a 6.67-inch curved display using an AMOLED panel, which should hopefully support a high refresh rate.
The device is also expected to have a single punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera to minimise the space it takes up without sacrificing picture quality.
Additionally, the Google Pixel 6 Pro will reportedly be the first model to feature a triple camera set up with a wide-angle and periscope telephoto camera, as well as a mysterious third camera that we’re yet to receive any insight on.
Measuring in at an estimated 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 millimetres, the phone is an absolute beast. As somebody with teeny tiny baby hands, this is a huge no from me, but if you’re keen on a phone that is too big to fit in a normal-sized pocket, this one’s for you.
Google is yet to confirm anything specific about the Pixel 6 Pro device, but we’ll be sure to update this article as more information (leaks, or official communication) is released.
Google is yet to confirm an official release date for the Pixel 6 Pro, so we’re working on speculation at the moment.
According to Digit.In, the Pro model should be set for release on August 26, 2021. It’s unclear if this is just a guess, or based on information that is yet to be made public, but it feels a little soon considering how little Google has announced thus far.
The Pixel 5 was officially available on October 15, 2020 and the Pixel 4 dropped just a week later on October 24, 2019. By this logic, we should expect the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in mid to late October.
