Google’s own Pixel smartphone series is a niche market. This is because it can get the Android system update as soon as possible. Also, Pixel smartphones come with excellent camera algorithms and it has a small number of loyal users. Google is expected to launch the Pixel 6 series in the fourth quarter of this year. According to reports, this new series will have two models – Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Today, we have a view of the protective case of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
As we can see from the images, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro protective cases are similar in shape. Both cases use a “camera-mounted” design, similar to the previous Galaxy S10 series layout. However, the matte design and shape look like an explosion-proof shield. The Google Pixel 4 XL (image on the left) was the last Pixel phone to use a similar protective case.
In terms of details, the difference between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro lies in the camera. Google Pixel 6 Pro seems to be equipped with a periscope telephoto lens. With Google’s self-developed algorithm, its imaging performance is expected to be significantly improved compared to the previous generation, Pixel 5.
In addition, the Google Pixel 6 series will also be equipped with self-developed chips. This will be the first mobile phone equipped with a self-developed SoC in the Google Pixel series. It will also be another Android phone brand that implements self-developed chips after Samsung and Huawei.

One of the earliest looks at the Google Pixel 6 series was from @jon_prosser. The leaks show that the Pixel 6 series uses a center punch-hole screen with a fairly large aperture. On the rear of both smartphones, there is a black ribbon-shaped horizontal bump that holds the rear camera. While the Pixel 6 has two cameras and one LED flash on the rear, the Pixel 6 Pro has three cameras and one LED flash. From the renders, these smartphones will come with an on-screen fingerprint sensor.
