We were shocked to see a series of leaked renders for the forthcoming Pixel flagships earlier this week. Nevertheless, since the source of those renders has a bad track record with leaks before these Pixel 6 Pro leaks, we were suspicious of their reliability at the time.
Now, we have a series of CAD-based renders for the Google Pixel 6 Pro (via Digit.in). Hemmerstoffer is perhaps one of the most dependable smartphone leakers in the industry, with a remarkable track record of accuracy. The Pixel 6 Pro would most definitely look very close to what we see here. Particularly, they don’t vary significantly from the leaked renders. Hemmerstoffer’s renders, on the other hand, reveal a genuine Google flagship with some intriguing hardware features. Let’s get started!
First, let’s get the technicalities out of the path. According to these rumours, the Google Pixel 6 Pro will be 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9mm in size. It may be 11.5mm thick at its thickest point, including the camera bump. The monitor will most likely be a curved OLED screen with a diagonal measurement of 6.67 inches.
Multiple rumors seem to be verified by Hemmerstoffer’s Pixel 6 Pro leaked renders. The selfie camera cutout could be focused (a first for a Pixel), an in-display fingerprint sensor will be included (another first), and the rear camera module could have three lenses (once again, a first). One of the cameras, in particular, seems to be a periscope lens, which would be a first. Pixel 6 Pro could also allow wireless charging and have dual stereo speakers, as per Hemmerstoffer.
Regrettably, renderings like these can’t tell us anything about what’s going on inside the phone. Nevertheless, there are credible reports that it will be fuelled by Google’s first attempt at in-house silicon, codenamed “Whitechapel.” Moreover, the information was released before we heard that a Google Pixel 6 Pro, rather than just a Pixel 6, could be released. It’s likely that the Pro model will use conventional flagship silicon (like the Snapdragon 888), while the vanilla model will use the Google-branded chip. Of course, that’s just a guess, and there’s no proof to back it up.
With a triple-lens setup on the back, including a periscope lens, wireless charging, and a monitor that is sure to be outstanding, the phone could end up being a rival to the Galaxy S21 Ultra. That’s a $1,200 smartphone, implying that the Pro would be expensive. What are your thoughts?
