What you need to know
- CAD-based renders of Google's upcoming Pixel 6 have surfaced.
- The renders suggest the phone will look fairly similar to the Pixel 6 Pro.
- Unlike the Pixel 6 Pro, however, the smaller model will only have two rear cameras.
Yesterday, we got our very first look at the Google Pixel 6 Pro, thanks to renders posted by reliable leaker @OnLeaks. A new set of renders showing the smaller Pixel 6 have now been shared by the leaker, in association with 91Mobiles.
The vanilla Pixel 6 will succeed the Pixel 5, which is currently Google's best Android phone. In terms of design, the renders suggest the Pixel 6 will not be very different from the Pixel 6 Pro. It will have the same unique rear panel design and a centered hole-punch cutout on the front. However, the two phones will be slightly different in the camera department. While the Pixel 6 Pro renders revealed a triple-lens camera system with a periscope lens, the Pixel 6 only appears to have two cameras on the back.
According to 91Mobiles, the Pixel 6 will arrive with a flat 6.4-inch display featuring an in-screen fingerprint scanner. Like the Pixel 6 Pro, it is also said to include wireless charging support and dual stereo speakers. The rest of the phone's tech specs, however, are yet to be revealed. Unlike phones like the Galaxy S21 and OnePlus 9, which are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888, the Pixel 6 series phones are rumored to pack Google's custom Whitechapel chip.
The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are expected to debut at the 'Made by Google' event in October. They are rumored to be joined by a foldable Pixel phone, which could sport a 7.6-inch inner screen.
Google Pixel 5
The Pixel 5 may not be a 'proper' flagship phone, but it does have a hugely impressive camera that can take great photos and videos. It also has a premium build and delivers excellent battery life.
