Google is yet to make a mark with its flagship Pixel phones, despite the fact that we have seen five generations of Google Pixel phones so far. Last year, Google surprised us by refraining from launching any flagship Pixel, so the most high-end Pixel that we got last year was the mid-range Pixel 5. Well, it looks like Google has changed its mind for this year because a new leak has suggested that this year, we are getting two Pixels named the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro, and this time around, Google went for a whole new design for these phones.
This design was shared by Jon Prosser from Front Page Tech, and the renders show a wild new design that gives Nexus 6P vibes with that camera module design. Now it is worth noticing that these renders are made by a guy who goes by the username “RendersByIan” on Twitter. Jon Prosser said that to protect the identity of the source that shared the real-life images of the Pixel 6, he collaborated with “RendersByIan” to have the renders of these two phones made based on those real images.
Anyways, the biggest design overhaul is on the back, where we see a raised camera module that starts from one edge and goes all the way to the other edge. Inside this are the cameras and the LED flash. The Google Pixel 6 has two cameras, whereas the Pixel 6 Pro gets three sensors in that camera island.
Speaking of the front design, both the Google Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro feature a display with a centered hole-punch cutout. There is also an in-display fingerprint scanner, something we have not yet seen on any Google Pixel phone launched to date.
Well, the specifications of these two phones are still a mystery, so nothing can be said about those yet. Anyways, as 9To5Google revealed last month, the Google Pixel 6 series will be the first from the brand to feature the company’s in-house “GS101” Whitechapel chip. So Google seems to be going by the Apple route by launching phones with its own software as well as its own hardware. It is reported that Google is developing this SOC in collaboration with Samsung!
So, it looks like Google is finally getting real series about its smartphone division as the Pixel 6 family is getting a massive design overhaul and some exciting new features too. What do you think of the design? Do let us know via the comments section below.
