Though the Google Pixel series smartphones are good enough, they haven’t become as popular as planned initially. However, everything might change with the launch of the Google Pixel 6. The latter is going to get an overhauled design.
New Design Of Google Pixel 6 Series
First, the Google Pixel 6 line will include two models – the standard edition and the Pro version. We have heard about this from various sources, including Front Page Tech and leaker Jon Prosser. Moreover, another leaker Max Weinbach has corroborated the legitimacy of this Pixel 6 design. Note, we are not talking about the colors but the overall appearance.
If you remember, the previously leaked renders show a pretty boring square camera module on the back. But the latest renders show that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will come with a radically changed design that centers around a rectangular camera bump.
The lower model should come with two camera sensors – presumably main and ultra-wide shooters. The Pro model will get the third sensor, which is going to be a periscope shooter. None of the previous Google Pixel phones has been featuring such a sensor. If believing in rumors, it will support 5x optical zoom.
Another interesting design element we want to discuss is the three-tone design Google is going to use. Previously, all Google Pixel smartphones were using dual-tone design. But now, this is going to change. As the renders showcase, the Google Pixel 6 series phones will consist of a more neutral color across two-thirds of the rear panel. As said, these final products may come with other colors. But as for the renders, they show a white-black-orange combo, a champagne gold-black-gold finish, and a champagne gold-black-orange colorway. The first two have black frames and the latter has a gold one.
Generally, the Google Pixel line handsets have become more squared. The display still offers impressively thin (and seemingly uniform) bezels. On the front, there is a hole placed at the upper center area. As a reference, the Google Pixel 5 carries a front camera in the left corner. Plus, the new phones will sport an under-screen fingerprint reader. So finally, Google will say farewell to the rear-mounted scanners.
Possible Launch Date
If taking into account the previous practice, Google launches the Pixel series smartphones around October. But the fifth generation model was launched on September 30 last year. So we should wait for it to debut in early fall. Tipster Yogesh (via Android Headlines) reports that the Google Pixel 6 Pro will go on mass production in late August.
Moreover, the same leaker said the Pro variant will use a new Sony sensor that’s larger than the current main Pixel camera sensor. It ought to have a 50-megapixel resolution, up from 12-megapixels right now.
