Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro Might Get 4 Years of Android Update, 5 Years of Security Patches

Google has been offering software support to Pixel devices for as many as three years.

Google Pixel 6 Pro

Google is gearing up for the Pixel 6 series launch. The company will launch the new Android flagship smartphones in the US and select other countries on October 19. Google has already teased some of the key features of the Pixel 6 series. These include the company’s custom-developed Tensor chip, up to triple-camera setup on the back and AMOLED displays with high refresh rate support. Google’s latest smartphones also run Android 12 out of the box. Ahead of the official release, a leak claims that Google will provide up to five years of updates on the Pixel 6 series. 

Tipster Snoopy states that the Pixel 6 series will get four years of major Android version updates. The company will also provide five years of security patches for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. If true, it would make the Pixel 6 series match or perhaps get close to Apple, which has been consistently providing software updates to its iPhone models released 4-5 years ago. Google has been offering software support to Pixel devices for as many as three years.

Google has not confirmed any details regarding the software support at the moment. We can expect some official confirmation at the event on October 19.
