Leaker Jon Prosser has just unveiled images of what could be the upcoming Google Pixel 6. The images (below) show a very different Pixel than what we’ve seen from the last few models, thanks to a fairly drastic change in design.
On the display side, Google has moved the selfie camera to the middle of the display, which matches previous rumors of the device. The Pixel 6 is also allegedly going to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, moving away from the rear sensor.
The camera array has also been changed from the stove design found on its predecessors like the Google Pixel 5. It’s now a protruding horizontal array with two or three camera sensors, depending on the model. The details of the cameras are unknown, but based on Google’s track record, it can be expected that the sensors won’t push the needle in terms of resolution.
Apparently, Google is now only switching up its design but also its naming scheme. Instead of releasing an “XL” model, Google is releasing both a standard Pixel 6 and a Pixel 6 Pro, following the trend of some of the best Android phones released this year. At first glance, the difference between the two models appears to be the number of rear cameras.
As with the Pixel Watch leak, Prosser notes that the renders are recreations based on images that he received of the device, so take them with a grain of salt, especially since the renders are likely somewhat overexaggerated. That said, another leaker, Max Winebach, appears to validate the updated design to an extent:
Android Central has not confirmed these design changes, and Google was not immediately available for a response.
How do you feel about these leaks? Do they get you excited for the Pixel 6?
