Google Pixel 6 tipped to get 5 years of Android updates
A new leak has allegedly spilt beans on Google’s upcoming smartphones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Yes, the larger phone will use a more conventional ‘Pro’ suffix instead of XL.
The most exciting news perhaps is the claimed iPhone-rivalling 5-year software update cycle, something that has been unheard of in the Android universe.
Coming to the specifications, the Pro model will come with a 6.7-inch display while the standard version will come with a 6.4-inch unit, both OLEDs.
Finally, the Google Pixel will also get a brand new camera sensor. On the Pixel 6, the main camera will be a 50MP unit which will be accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide unit. On the Pixel 6 Pro, there will be an additional 48MP telephoto camera as well.
The battery has always been the Pixel series’ weak point, and Google seems to have addressed this as well. The Pro is tipped to have a 5,000mAh cell while the Pixel 6 will get a 4,614mAh unit.
The leak does not talk of the chipset which will power these phones. But since many specifications look pretty high-end here, hoping for a Snapdragon 888/870 is pretty reasonable.
As per the leak, the Pixel 6 series will have a dual-coloured glass back that’s divided via a long horizontal camera window. Now that’s quite unusual!
