New leak confirms larger Pixel 6 Pro, offers first Pixel 6 specs

New renders show off a better view of the next Google flagship.

What you need to know

  • Another Google Pixel 6 "Pro" leak shows us a good look at Google's 2021 flagship.
  • These new leaks are accompanied by the first spec details.
  • The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are expected to launch at this year's Made By Google event in the fall.

The Google Pixel 6 leaked for the first time last week, showing off a very distinct design when compared to the likes of the Pixel 5 or Pixel 4a 5G. Now, new renders shared by OnLeaks (via give us a clearer look at the upcoming flagship.

This set of renders specifically show off the Pixel 6 "Pro" — the name is currently unconfirmed — the successor to the XL variants every Pixel has had so far, with the exception of the Pixel 5. It is said to have a 6.6-7-inch AMOLED curved display with a centered punch-hole front-facing camera. The rear camera layout is said to be a primary wide-angle lens, a periscope telephoto, and presumably an ultra-wide lens. Dimensions-wise, it is estimated to be 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 mm. Other key specs include dual stereo speakers and wireless charging support.

We do not know the RAM and storage size options, but we can reasonably expect a minimum of 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage based on the Pixel 5. There is also a strong possibility that it could come with a Google Whitechapel chip in lieu of a Snapdragon 888.

Google was thought to be abandoning the premium phone market with the launch of the very adequate Pixel 5 last year. The company's phones could not compete, on a hardware level, with even cheap Xiaomi phones. Google this year appears to be offering many of the things we would have liked to see in a Pixel 6. The display is larger, the design is anything but dull, and the cameras appear to be improved — even if just in terms of flexibility. Coupled with what we've seen from Android 12, and the Pixel 6 is looking like one of the best Android phones of 2021 on paper.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are expected to make their debut around October, going by the company's previous launch patterns. We'll see if Google can deliver then.

While the Pixel 6 could be the phone of your dreams in the future, the Pixel 5 will do everything you want in a smartphone for a fairly inexpensive price right now. A smooth display, sharp cameras, and fast updates make this phone a winner.

Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases. Jump to: iPad widgets and app drawer Live Text Apple Maps AR navigation iOS notifications New Siri capabilities Apple Photos Bonus: What Google needs to steal iPad widgets and app drawer iPad OS 15 introduced two big new updates for the iPad home screen today: widgets and the App Library.
