Google is set to make its Pixel 6 phones official in 2021, and a slew of leaks and rumors have been circulating in the meantime. The most recent one discusses the potential camera capabilities of smartphones. The most recent leak provides some additional information on their cameras.
According to the evidence, Google may make significant changes that will make the Pixel 6 a worthy upgrade. Here’s what phones might bring to the table.
As per leaker @FrontTron, the Pixel 6 devices will include a gimbal-like steady camera mode and significant video improvements, which is similar to the feature found on the LG Wing and Vivo X50/X60 phones. The leaker also asserted on Twitter that the devices would be more effective than the Pixel 5, and would be able to deliver a Google Custom Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and Image Signal Processor (ISP) and a larger Samsung sensor.
Design and Specification of Google Pixel 6
Aside from camera improvements (which we anticipate), the Pixel 6 is expected to undergo a slew of changes. To begin, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are expected to be powered by Google’s in-house chip, codenamed Whitechapel. This will allow Google to compete with companies such as Apple and Samsung.
The chip is expected to be based on a 5nm process technology and compete with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, which has recently appeared in a number of phones.
The phones are also expected to undergo a significant design overhaul. They are likely to feature a large rectangular camera hump (as seen on the Poco M3, Mi 11 Ultra) and a tri-color scheme. This means the end of the square-shaped camera setup we’ve been seeing for a while. Instead of the left top, the front could be a punching hole in the center.
A 120Hz AMOLED display, dual rear cameras (50-megapixel, 8-megapixel), a 5,000mAh battery with faster charging, Android 12 out-of-the-box, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and other features are also included.
Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro in October, so there is still time for more rumors and reports to circulate. In our roundup feature, you can read about what has been claimed so far for the Pixel 6. There’s also a roundup for the Pixel 6 Pro.
