The alleged renders show the Pixel 6 going in a bold direction.
New images from reputable leaker OnLeaks show what may be a bold step forward for Google’s Pixel series. The Pixel 6 Pro, as pictured in the alleged renders.
This report also says that the 6 Pro will use an OLED ufabet screen, though there’s no confirmation of refresh rate, and will measure around 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9mm.
There are some obvious differences in design, with the camera array move to a raise, horizontal stripe across the back. There’s no confirmation with this leak whether the 6 Pro will include the rumored, Google-designed Soc ( system on a chip).
The naming shift from “XL” to “Pro” could also indicate a new relationship between the standard and big-screen models. In previous generations (the Pixel 5 never got an XL counterpart), the XL model was a “same phone, bigger screen” affair. Ditching that moniker for “Pro” could indicate that it’s both a bigger and higher-end device.
Google has taken a conservative approach recently to its Pixel hardware and design. This hasn’t been an entirely bad thing, and it’s earned Google’s handsets a reputation for simple, affordable design with camera.
But if these renders are the real deal, then the company appears to be making a move to challenge other flagships with higher-end hardware.
