Several months before their official presentation, Google has already formalized the existence of the Pixel 6 and 6 XL by mentioning them in a form for Android developers, before quickly removing everything.
Until now, we thought that Google’s top-of-the-line smartphones would be called Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, but Google will ultimately continue to use the “XL” to denote its more premium variant.
Since mid-May, we have known the design of the next Google smartphones, and we are now certain that Google will present the new generation at the end of the year. These are therefore two models that will succeed the Pixel 5 of the previous year., since Google will present a new “XL” model this year.
The Pixel 6 and 6 XL will have the particularity of being the first to use a new house chip from Google, named internally “Whitechapel”. According to the leaks, it will be produced by Samsung, and would compete with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870, which can be found in particular in the POCO F3 from Xiaomi.
What do we know about the Pixel 6 and 6 XL?
The Pixel 6 and 6 XL won’t be revealed until fall, but we already know a good deal of their specs. Indeed, we recently learned that the Pixel 6 will be equipped with6.4-inch 120Hz FHD + AMOLED display and 4614mAh battery. On the photo side, there will be a 50 MP main sensor and a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor. Up front, the Pixel 6 can count on a 8 MP selfie camera.
The Pixel 6 XL will deserve its name “XL”, since the smartphone will use a giant 6.71-inch 120 Hz QHD + AMOLED screen and a 5000 mAh battery. At the rear, we will find a main sensor of 50 MP, an ultra-wide-angle sensor of 12 MP as well as48 MP periscope allowing 5X optical zoom. The selfie camera housed in a punch in the middle of the screen would increase to 12 MP.
Google is expected to officially unveil its smartphones in the fall. The Pixel 6 will be available with 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage, while the Pixel 6 Pro will benefit from 12 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of storage. If the manufacturer remains true to its habits, it should itself “accidentally” reveal part of the technical sheet of its smartphones before their release.
