Google is rumoured to debut the Pixel 6 series later this year. According to previous reports, the company will launch two new smartphones called the Pixel 6 and a high-end “Pro” model. This Pro Pixel will reportedly replace the “XL” moniker found on older generation Pixel smartphones. However, it looks like Google will stick to the “XL” moniker. The company might have confirmed the names of its upcoming flagship smartphones via a developer form. Let’s take a look at more details on the Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 XL specs, features, and other details.
Google Pixel 6 XL name confirmed?
Google is expected to debut the Pixel 6 series later this year. Reports suggested that the high-end Pixel will launch as the Pixel 6 Pro. However, that might not be the case. Google kicked off its Game Developer Summit 2021, where it unveiled new tools for Android game developers. The company also released some developer documentation for the new Game Mode APIs, which it describes as Game Mode interventions. It essentially will allow OEMs to make game-specific optimisations. The documentation, spotted by XDA, reveals the moniker of two unreleased devices called Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 XL. It might not necessarily confirm and could be a typo but also gives rise to rumours regarding the upcoming high-end Pixel phone.
It was rumoured that the top-tier model will have a “Pro” moniker. Google has not officially confirmed the names of its two devices at the moment. Meanwhile, details about the two devices have leaked already. Both devices will feature a custom Google silicon that is rumoured to debut later this year. As per previous reports, the Google chip is said to be as powerful as the Snapdragon 870 SoC.
The top-end model will sport a triple-camera setup on the back will have a 50MP wide, 12MP ultrawide and a 48MP telephoto camera. Details about the optical zooming capabilities are unknown. For selfies, the device will house a 12MP front camera inside the hole-punch cutout.
It is also rumoured to feature a 6.71-inch QHD+ OLED display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. It is said to pack a 5000 mAh battery. There is no mention of the fast charging details. The XL/ Pro model will come with 12GB of RAM and 128GB/ 256GB/ 512GB storage options. It will run Android 12 out of the box. Both devices are claimed to offer at least five years of software support.
