Pixel 6 will be unveiled a day before the September 14 Apple event, leaker claims15
The Mountain View company has already previewed its next flagships and provided some key details such as they will be powered by an in-house chipset and feature an upgraded camera system.
Earlier this month, Google said the phones would be unveiled this fall. A few days back, a company spokesperson confirmed that last year's Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G have been discontinued.
Pixel 6 announcement date roughly coincides with the next Apple event
According to leaker Bald Panda, the Pixel 6 will be announced on September 13. If you are wondering, its predecessor, the Pixel 5, was revealed on September 30 last year.
This roughly coincides with Samsung Galaxy S21 FE's and Apple iPhone 13's announcement dates. Rumors indicate that Samsung's budget flagship will be introduced on September 8 and Apple's next smartphone lineup will be revealed on September 14.
The Pixel 6 is shaping up to be Google's most exciting range in a long time. For starters, it will have the in-house Tensor chip, which rumors suggest will be based on Samsung's 5nm process.
Google will also finally equip its phone with new camera hardware. The standard model is rumored to come with a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide unit. The Pixel 6 Pro is also expected to have a 48MP telephoto module with 5x zoom.
The new devices will seemingly also have beefier batteries, in-display fingerprint reader, and UWB support.
Whether or not the Pixel 6 will live up to the hype and become the best smartphone of 2021 remains to be seen. The Tensor chip might be nothing more than a Google-branded Exynos chip and the phones might be prohibitively priced.
The Pixel 6 will come in black, mint green, and orange-coral shades, and the 6 Pro will be available in black, gold, and silver. The devices will at least be available in eight markets.
