To learn more about the Pixel 6, you don't need to wait for Google's October 19th event. Evan Blass, a well-known leaker, has found teaser pages on Carphone Warehouse which shed more light on both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. As per past rumors, Google promises "at least" five more years of security updates than Samsung's four-year-old. This suggests that your Pixel 6 will be able to receive the most current protection until 2026.
Although they don't provide much more information, teasers usually cover the official details. Google is very interested in camera techniques Magic Eraser eliminates photostombers, Face Unblur maintains focus and an ultra-wide front cam allows for group selfies. The Pixel 6 will feature a 50MP main sensor, up from 12MP, and a 12MP ultrawide. The Pixel 6 Pro will include a 48MP Telephoto lens.
Product pages hint at battery life exceeding 24 hours even on 5G, with fast 30W wired charging or reverse charging via Battery Share. A new, twice as powerful Pixel Stand is available for wireless charging. Both the 6.4-inch Pixel 6 Pro and the 6.7-inch Pixel 6 Pro will feature Gorilla Glass Victus and IP68 dust and waterproof resistance. However, the 6 Pro will have an adaptive 120Hz display. The smaller model will have a Smooth Display (likely 90Hz).
Carphone's listings do not go into detail about specs. It's clear that Google wants to make the Pixel 6 a flagship device in terms of support and not just performance. While other Android vendors may have trouble following this model (since they are often tied to policies by chipmakers like Qualcomm), it could offer you at least one option for security updates that look just like Apple's.
