he Google Pixel 6 is predicted to launch later this year and can reportedly accompany some impressive specs and extra software support, consistent with the foremost recent rumor. FrontPageTech leaker Jon Prosser has provided a rundown of what could be the specs for the upcoming smartphones.
The Pixel 6 will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, 50MP main sensor with a 12MP ultrawide camera, 128/256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, and a 4614mAh battery.
The “Pro” variant will get a display bump to six .71-inches, although previous rumors have speculated that this may be a QHD+ resolution at 120Hz, while the smaller variant will have an FHD+ resolution at 120Hz. The Pixel 6 “Pro” also will feature a further 48MP zoom lens, up to 256GB of storage, and 12GB of RAM. The battery is going to be larger at 5,000mAh.
Much of this has already been speculated, but it’s nice to ascertain the specs all laid bent to get a fuller picture of those devices.
What’s most interesting is that Prosser alleges that the Pixel 6 will receive five years of Android software updates, which is sort of impressive. So far, Samsung holds the crown for the longest software support after announcing a four-year support promise on many of its devices. Its enterprise phones are already being promised the maximum amount of five years of software support.
Of course, this is often to be crazy a pinch of salt until we hear anything official from Google, but announcing five years of software support would be a serious feat in bringing the Android ecosystem closer to iOS in terms of support, and will be an enormous point, particularly for Google’s Pixel devices.
It’s also important to notice that this might not necessarily ask five years of Android version upgrades but five years of software support via security updates. Manufacturers of the simplest Android phones tend to differentiate between the 2 when announcing their update promises. it’s going to not be ideal, but things have improved quite a bit because of Project Mainline, and Google could surprise us given the work on its in-house Whitechapel chipset.
For now, we’ll need to wait until October to listen to anything official as Prosser says that’s likely when the devices are going to be announced.
