Jul 9, 2021

Google is expected to launch the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones this Fall. We already heard from one leakster that Mountain View is developing a custom SoC, and today Jon Prosser shares what he says are the final specifications of the phones, supporting that claim.
A big improvement over previous Pixel phones are the size of the batteries – the Pixel 6 will have a 4,614mAh power cell, while the Pro will come with a 5,000mAh juice pack.
The Google Pixel 6 will have a 6.4 AMOLED screen and just two cameras on the back – 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide units. The RAM will be 8GB, while storage options will be two – 128GB and 256GB.
The Pixel 6 Pro will have a bigger 6.71 screen that Prosser references as P-OLED so it’s supposedly coming from LG. It will have a 12MP camera at the front, while the back will have 50MP main, 48MP telephoto and 12MP ultrawide cameras. RAM here is 12GB, and theres one more storage variant than the regular Pixel 6 – 512GB.
Both phones will be among the first to ship with the newest Android 12, as is tradition. According to Prosser, Google is also promising at least five years of software updates, which is great news for the wee crowd of Pixel owners.
