The subscription service, which will apparently be called "Pixel Pass," is said to be a "mobile-focused subscription bundle" that will get users a Pixel 6 phone with the promise of regular upgrades, an extended device warranty, network coverage from Google Fi, and access to first-party services such as Google, Play Pass, YouTube Premium.
Users will be able to sign up for a Pixel Pass subscription by purchasing a new Pixel 6 through Google Fi or Google Store. Unfortunately, however, there's no word yet on how much the subscription will cost. It also remains unclear if Pixel Pass will be limited to the U.S. at launch.
Aside from the Pixel Pass subscription, Brandon has also accessed marketing materials that reveal the official color names for both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. The standard Pixel 6 will be available in Kinda Coral, Sorta Seafoam, and Stormy Black options. Google's Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, will be offered in Sorta Sunny, Cloudy White, and Stormy Black.
As confirmed by a huge new leak recently, the Pixel 6 series phones will be powered by Google's Tensor chipset, which is said to offer 80% faster performance than the Snapdragon 765G inside the Pixel 5. It will also have a custom image processor and a new Titan M2 security chip.
Google's answer to the best Android phones of 2021 are set to debut at its fall launch event on October 19.
