Rumors have begun making the rounds about Google’s upcoming phone hardware. While murmurs about a possible custom chipset for the device were being heard last month, renders have begun being shared by leakers. Last week, Jon Prosser shared a bunch of renders based on internal information. Today, Digit has shared more information and more detailed renders in collaboration with renowned leaker Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks).
Kudos @jon_prosser who shared a rather good look at the #Pixel6Pro.— Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) May 20, 2021
That being said, his depiction isn't that flawless...
Thus, I'm back to provide a more accurate look at this device + display size + dimensions + 360° video, on behalf of @digitindia 👇🏻https://t.co/SjL80zE2Ys pic.twitter.com/vF2lVyJKBN
The report corroborates Prosser’s information about a massive redesign and suggests that the search giant will be reintroducing a large-screened flagship in its 2021 lineup – something that was absent last year. The company looks to also be moving away from the ‘XL’ moniker as well and might use a ‘Pro’ branding for the larger of the devices, hinting at flagship specifications.
As for the design, the phone is expected to sport a horizontal hump at the back that spans the width of the device that houses a triple camera array – a first for the Pixel line. The housing is said to offer a main wide-angle camera, a periscope lens for telephoto capabilities, and a third unknown unit. It is safe to assume that the third lens is an ultra-wide-angle unit, though. The rear will possibly sport a dual-tone color, as seen in the renders.
At the front, the Pixel 6 Pro is expected to house a 6.67-inch curved AMOLED display with a punch-hole cutout for the front-facing camera. The report states that the panel might not be a high refresh rate one. However, interestingly, the device might come with stereo speakers at the top and the bottom, something that Pixel users will appreciate. The phone is said to offer wireless charging capabilities as well. The firm might also debut an in-display fingerprint sensor with the Pixel 6 lineup, the report adds.
While there is currently no information on the internals, the Mountain View company is rumored to be working on powering the Pixel lineup with an in-house custom chip. Considering that it still early, it wouldn’t be surprising to see more information about the internals leak in the coming months.
