Google coming back to truly flagship smartphones with some exclusive features and hardware is great news not only to Pixel fans but to the whole smartphone industry as well as it increases the competition and we as consumers win.
With that said, we are in a Pixel 6 season so more and more information about the handset is pouring in, today’s report suggests the Pixel 6 Pro will be the biggest Pixel phone that Google has ever created including the old Nexus phones.
Onleaks, as you know a very reputed guy, has shared the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro renders that are based on the official cad schematics. The renders are in line with what Jon Prosser
showed a few days basically confirming that the phone will come with a unique new design that sees a camera bridge on the rear panel.
But he also shared some specs of the handset and there’s some good news. First, the screen sizes have been revealed. The Pixel 6 Pro will have a 6.67″ QHD+ AMOLED display, the biggest size ever on a Pixel phone. Not only that the phone will have a 120Hz high refresh rate screen according to Ross Young, a display analyst. The display is curved like Samsung flagships and whether or not that’s good news depends on if you like curved displays or not.
The standard Pixel 6 will have a 6.4″ flat display. So if curved displays are a deal-breaker to
you then Google has you covered. Now, what’s not clear is the refresh rate
as well as the screen resolution of the Pixel 6 which we’ll have to wait a little more to find out.
Another thing confirmed is the presence of the periscope zoom camera, making it the first Pixel phone to have this lens. We already had this news yesterday but it came from a guy who had a mixed track record. But if Onleaks is saying that the phone will have a periscope zoom camera then rest assured it will have that camera. This guy also shared this image claiming it’s the real photo of the Pixel 6 Pro’s camera module, which again is in line with the renders.
Also, we have some info about the software features of the Pixel 6 lineup. According to XDADevelopers, the Pixel 6 will have audio-coupled haptics to generate custom vibration effects for ringtones. This will produce vibrations that feel better and more in sync with the audio than the current hardcoded patterns.
Since Google is focusing on custom vibration, it’s more than likely we’re also getting a bigger and improved haptic feedback engine. Google is likely to announce the new flagships on September 30th later this year.
