More Google Pixel 6 Pro images have leaked, revealing new triple camera and specs

The Google Pixel 6 series hasn’t been launched yet, of course, but leaked images have already surfaced in the past few weeks, offering a look at what the company’s mobile team have been working on. In the past, Pixel designs have been somewhat underwhelming (to me, at least), but if these unofficial images are to be believed, Google is finally set to revamp things from a design point of view.

Reliable leakster Steve McFly, also known as @OnLeaks on Twitter, has just shared a series of images that seemingly confirm the aesthetic that my colleague Rory talked about the other day. He liked it, and so do I.

What’s also revealing here is that we might not see an XL model this year, with Google replacing it with an XL moniker instead. Plus, OnLeaks also revealed via that the Pixel 6 Pro will have a triple-camera setup—a first for a Pixel phone—with the regular Pixel 6 featuring a more familiar dual-camera setup on the back.

Other leaked specs for the Pro include a 6.67″ curved display with a single hole-punch cutout for a selfie camera; it isn’t clear if the AMOLED panel will have a high refresh rate, however. We’re expecting to see dual stereo speakers on Google’s next flagship phones, as well as features like wireless charging support.

Meanwhile, the camera array at the back will supposedly include a primary wide camera, as well as a periscope telephoto camera to offer optical zoom, as well as a yet-to-be known camera next to the LED. I’m guessing the regular Pixel 6 will miss out on the periscope lens, although this is just speculation at this point.

So far, we haven’t actually heard anything about the chipset that’ll power the next Pixel phones. As recently as April, there were rumours that Google would incorporate its own Whitechapel SoC within the next generation of Pixel phones—something that has clearly been a strength of the iPhones in the years gone by.

So, what do you think about Google’s radical new look? They haven’t actually confirmed an official release date yet, and of course, the images above are all unofficial, but it seems likely that we’ll get work sooner rather than later. As always, share your thoughts in the comments section below!
