KEY POINTS

  • Google offered details about the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in August
  • It promised to provide more information about the flagship smartphones
  • New set of leaks reveal crucial data about the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

Several retailers have inadvertently revealed the full specifications and key features of the highly anticipated Goole Pixel 6 and Goole Pixel 6 Pro ahead of the tech giant's official reveal.

Unlike other tech companies, search engine giant Google has changed its approach in marketing its upcoming flagship smartphones. Instead of tightly keeping the product and its specs from consumers, Google already showcased the design of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro along with some of its features and specs in a Twitter thread last August.

Google confirmed it would officially launch the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on Oct. 19, but it seems like some retailers have already released details the tech giant planned to reveal at the products' launch. Over the weekend, British retailer Carphone Warehouse mistakenly published marketing pages for Google's flagship smartphones earlier than scheduled.

These pages reveal the camera setups of Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro along with its all-day battery life and more details about the Material You design language. One of the most exciting features of the upcoming smartphones is its camera setup.

It appears both devices sport a 50 MP main sensor, which is a massive improvement from the 12 MP module Google used on previous Pixel iterations. The marketing pages also claim the upcoming smartphones feature 150% more light than their predecessor.

Moreover, the camera setup comes with a 12 MP ultra-wide sensor and an extra 48 MP telephoto lens for Google Pixel 6 Pro. The more expensive model also sports a 4x optical zoom with Super Res Zoom that can achieve up to 20x zoom.

The search engine giant also equips its flagship smartphones with a plethora of camera tricks. This includes the Magic Eraser feature that allows users to removephotobomberss and Face Unblur that can transform blurry shots to appear much sharper.

This year's flagship smartphones from Google will reportedly have five years of Android security updates, according to leaks. The marketing pages also revealed the Google Pixel 6 Pro features a 6.7-inch display with a dynamic refresh rate ranging from 10 Hz up to 120 Hz.

The premium device reportedly boasts of a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, described as the toughest Gorilla Glass in the market. Other highlights from the leak include Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro's ability to use a 30W wall charger with the latter supposedly achieving 50% battery charge in just 30 minutes.
