It is no secret that Google is preparing to launch its new Pixel smartphones later this year. The next flagships are expected to launch in October 2021. Ahead of their launch, Google has given us a look at what we can expect from the devices, however the specs, including the camera hardware, remain under wraps. .
According to a new report, the next Google Pixel phones could have a 50-megapixel primary sensor. The information was reportedly found in the Android 12 beta 4 code. The code suggests that the Google Pixel 6 could use a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor. This will be a massive upgrade to the existing Pixel 5 that comes with a 12.2-megapixel Sony sensor.
Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Specs and Rumored Features
According to previous reports, there will be two devices in the Pixel line this year. First it will be the Pixel 6 Pro with a 6.67-inch curved screen that has a single hole drilled for the selfie camera at the front. The screen is expected to use an AMOLED panel which may or may not support a high refresh rate. The screen will have minimal bezels on all sides and it also has an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, keep in mind that the OnLeaks versions of the Pixel 6 Pro shared with us also show a slightly noticeable chin.
Google appears to have completely redesigned the back of the Pixel 6 Pro, but it hasn’t completely removed its iconic dual-tone design. The phone reportedly measures approximately 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9 millimeters and is 11.5 millimeters thick when camera bump is taken into account. There is a horizontal camera island at the top that sticks out a bit and houses three cameras. The triple camera setup on the Pixel 6 Pro includes a main wide-angle camera, a periscope telephoto camera, and an unknown camera located next to the LED flash. There are a couple of sensors housed in the camera module, as well as a microphone unit.
