A cache of Pixel 6 images leaks, confirming features we already knew about
October 19 can’t come soon enough – leaks of the Pixel 6 series have revealed just about everything about the upcoming Google phones. Earlier today German retailer MediaMarkt confirmed the rumored price of the vanilla Pixel 6, €650. This means that the rumored €900 price for the Pixel 6 Pro model is probably correct too.
Now here comes Evan Blass who has dug up basically all the images that will be featured on the Pixel 6 page on the Google Store. While the surrounding text is missing, the images are descriptive enough (plus, it’s not like this is the first time we’re hearing about these features).
Let’s start with this image – for the first time in years Google’s excellent camera software will be paired with current camera hardware. This includes a 50 MP main camera, 48 MP telephoto module and a 12 MP ultra wide camera.
That 50 MP main sensor should be Samsung’s 1/1.31” GN1 sensor with 1.2 µm pixels, 4-in-1 binning and Dual Pixel autofocus. According to a leak, this sensor will also be used in the smaller Pixel 6. The tele camera will be exclusive to the Pro, however, and it will have 4x magnification. You can read more about the Pixel 6 camera features here. And you can even check out some camera samples.
These next few images are self explanatory – the new Pixels will have an IP rating for water resistance. Considering Pixel 5 was rated IP68 we don’t expect anything less from the 6-series.
The first image below shows a wired charger, even though there isn’t going to be one in the retail package. The Pro model should support 33W charging for its 5,000 mAh battery. The two phones should also feature wireless charging, which enables functionality similar to Home Hub.
The Pixel 6 will come with Android 12, which introduces Material You, the first major redesign of how Android looks in a few years. Check out our review for more on the new looks and new features.
Finally, here are a bunch of other promo images:

A lot of this is just hype. Real results will be similar to iPhone 12 mini sales but even worse. Because reality doesn't equate to people typing how excited they are by commenting on a phone site like this or on YouTube.
