After months of leaks and rumors Google has finally pulled the wraps from Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The slew of leaks combined with Pixel 6 official preview left very little for imagination. Unlike last year, Pixel 6 now comes with class leading specifications and this includes the new Tensor SoC. Let us take a closer look at what Pixel 6 series has to offer.
Last month Google previewed the Pixel 6 and announced the much-awaited Tensor custom SoC. In the meantime, we have heard rumors about the Google Pixel Stand, and now we have more information about the same. A US-based retailer has confirmed that Pixel stand should support up to 23W of wireless charging.
Google Pixel 6 specifications and features keep trickling in as we near the launch date. Earlier this month, Google previewed the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Google also debuted its custom Tensor chip with the Pixel 6 series. We learned about the new camera module and a host of other AI-based software features during the preview. Now a new AOSP has confirmed that the Pixel 6 is likely to include ultra-wideband support.
Earlier this month, Google confirmed key Pixel 6 features. The company also revealed the device in its full glory. Quite a lot is changed on the design front, including a more prominent battery bump that runs along horizontally. However, we couldn’t spot the fingerprint sensor on Pixel 6. The latest leak reveals that Pixel 6 will most likely come equipped with an under-display or in-display fingerprint sensor.
One of the most significant advantages of owning a smartwatch is offline music playback. This way, you don’t have to carry your phone along to the run or during workouts in the gym. Android smartwatch running WearOS allowed users to access offline music via Google Music. With the death of Google Music, the wearOS lacked a music service that offers offline listening. Spotify has finally decided to fill the void with offline support on Wear OS.
Google has released the latest bug-fixing beta update for Android 12. The bug-fixing update fixes several issues and is much more stable. With the latest beta, Google has addressed some notorious issues like boot loops and issues with memory. The Android 12 Beta 3.1 is expected to soon roll out for Pixel phones.
Google has overhauled the Lens app with a new feature and a shift in priorities. Previously, Google Lens focussed on analyzing live photos via the viewfinder. The latest update to the Lens app prioritizes analyzing existing images and screenshots from the camera roll.
We have already seen the rather outlandish Pixel 6 design in leaked renders. Now a picture of the Pixel 6 protective case has surfaced with a rather complicated design. This is no surprise considering the way the camera bump is shaped and placed. Popular tipster Ice Universe has posted pictures of a transparent plastic case that matches with previously leaked renders.
Google’s Feature drop is an interesting way to make existing phones better. The latest Pixel Drop arrives with new features and improvements to existing features. It includes features like “time lapse” for Astrophotography.
Google Pixel 6 has leaked extensively over the past month. Thanks to renders and leaks, we now know how the device would look and also important specifications. The latest info about Pixel 6 comes from a logcat posted as a comment on Google IssueTracker.
