Google has been working on its all-new Pixel 6 flagship series for quite some time now, and while we already have a pretty decent idea of what they’ll look like, their specifications have already leaked!
Google’s custom SoC: Whitechapel
Since Google has opted to follow Apple’s lead, the Google Pixel 6 series will have Google’s own custom SoCs. These bespoke SoCs are supposed to be top of the line in terms of performance and battery efficiency, while also running cooler than Qualcomm SoCs. This gives Google a significant advantage over other smartphone manufacturers, as they can tailor their SoCs to their own smartphone designs.
In comparison to previous Pixel phones, the battery on the Pixel 6 will be 4,614mAh, while the Pixel 6 Pro will feature a 5,000mAh battery. This should assure at least a day of intense usage on the phones, with light users getting up to two days.
Screen and Cameras
Coming onto the screen and camera department, the Pixel 6 will have a 6.4” AMOLED screen and just two cameras on the back – 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide units. The RAM will be 8GB, while storage options will be two – 128GB and 256GB.
The Pixel 6 Pro will have a bigger 6.71” screen that Prosser references as P-OLED so it’s supposedly coming from LG. It will have a 12MP camera at the front, while the back will have 50MP main, 48MP telephoto and 12MP ultrawide cameras. RAM here is 12GB, and there’s one more storage variant than the regular Pixel 6 – 512GB.
5 years of OS upgrade
Google will be launching the Pixel 6 series as the first devices with Android 12, and there’s a cherry on top of the cake: Google is following Apple and will probably offer 5 years of software upgrades for their devices!
