We’re still several months away from the launch of Google’s 2021 lineup, but in the meantime, leaks are starting to appear about the Pixel 6 Pro.
The new images show what may be a bold step forward for Google‘s Pixel series, as the Pixel 6 Pro could offer a 6.67-inch curved screen and triple rear camera, including a Periscope-style telephoto lens.
The information indicates that the Pixel 6 Pro uses an OLED screen with a fingerprint scanner at the bottom of the screen, although there is no confirmation of the refresh rate, as well as it comes with dimensions of 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm.
It is expected to offer dual speakers and support for wireless charging – features found within the Pixel 5.
There are some noticeable differences in the design as well, as the camera has been moved to a high horizontal bar across the back of the device and has a distinctive color across the panel above it.
There is no confirmation with this leak whether the phone includes the Whitechapel SoC (cross-chip system), which is a specially designed chip optimized for Google’s smartphone priorities.
Changing the designation from “XL” to “Pro” could also indicate a new relationship between the standard model and the large screen models.
In previous generations (the Pixel 5 didn’t get its XL counterpart), the XL was the same phone but with a bigger screen, and dropping the XL designation in favor of the Pro might indicate it’s a bigger, higher-end device.
Google took a modern conservative approach to Pixel phone hardware and design, and Google phones gained a large number of fans due to its simplicity of design, reasonable prices, and great imaging and software capabilities.
If the leaks are real, then that means that Google is taking a step to challenge other leading companies with high-end hardware.
There is currently no confirmed release date for the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, but Google is expected to stick to the usual timeframe as phones are announced in the fall.
