Exclusive Google Pixel 6 Series Details – First Look and Specs Revealed

With the Apple iPhone 13 making headlines this week, other companies have tried various tactics to steal the attention away from the new iPhone series launch. Google went a step ahead and has put Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on display at Google’s Storefront in New York City.

The store is located on 9th Avenue between West 15th and 16th Streets. Images of each device were posted to Reddit by various users.  

Google’s strategy for marketing the phone models is quite interesting. First, it released the images of the designs and specifications of its Tensor chipsets in the first week of August.

It also revealed that the company would finally be updating the camera systems of its Pixel 6 series phones which include a dedicated telephoto camera on the Pro model.

Meanwhile, there is another surfacing that a folding Pixel phone from Google will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year.

The close-up of the display models reveals that the camera module sports two lenses on the Pixel 6 and three on the Pixel 6 Pro. If you need some zoom, you will have to pay for the Pro version.

Although the specifications of the camera are not confirmed, it is being speculated that it includes a 50MP wide camera, 12 MP ultra-wide cameras, and the Pro-exclusive 48 MP telephoto camera.   

The differences between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro series do not just stop at the camera lens. The Pro will include a larger display, more RAM, and a bigger battery as per the rumors doing rounds about the specifications.

However, at the heart of both phones will be the most-talked in-house chipset, the Tensor chip. Google has made considerable progress with AI-driven computation photography.  

It is also being guessed that the Pixel 6 Pro series may come preinstalled with a digital car key application and the UWB hardware would be provided by Qorvo, an American semiconductor company that specializes in this kind of hardware.

Also, we recently learned that the Pixel 6 Pro firmware would be based on Linux kernel version 5.10. This information aligns perfectly with the rumor that Google’s upcoming phone series will receive major software updates.

As of now, everything is just being guessed and we need to wait for an official statement from the tech giant about its upcoming launch.
