Google will release its latest smartphones soon and there have been a couple of reports regarding this new series. The Google Pixel 6 series will have two smartphones. This series will include the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro. As the official launch date draws closer, more information about this series is hitting the web. The latest information on the Google Pixel 6 series claims that this series will get up to the Android 16 update. The series will get at least 5 years of major Android update support.
The report from @OXIR claims that the Google Pixel 6 series will pre-install the Android 12 operating system. The 4-year major Android update means that the Google Pixel 6 series will have Android 13, Android 14, Android 15, and Android 16 updates. This is also the first flagship phone confirmed to be upgraded to the Android 16 operating system.
It is worth noting that before Google Pixel 6, Google usually provides a three-year Android version update for Pixel models. Now that the Pixel 6 series will receive 5 years of Android update support, Google has not officially confirmed whether the previous generation Pixel 5 will enjoy the same treatment. In addition, other Android mobile phone brands besides Google provide Android updates for up to 4 years. This move by Google will widen the gap with rivals. This is also a major selling point of the Pixel 6 series.
