Your autumn just got a whole lot better, and you have Google to thank for that.
You may not be a fan of the colder weather, darker nights and absence of the glowing British sun, but the Pixel 6 is about to make things a little bit brighter.
For those of you who welcome the cosy season with open arms, this is just yet another benefit of summer ending for you.
Google have confirmed a Pixel 6 and a Pixel 6 Pro and they've now given us a date we can expect to see it in all its glory.
On October 19th, at an exclusive event, Google are going to launch their new devices. The event will be hosted at 6pm, just when you get in from work.
You'll be able to throw on your comfy clothes, turn on the heating, make yourself a brew and watch the magic unfold.
While Google themselves have been more secretive about what this device will look like, the internet hasn’t.
As with any new smartphone launch, the whispers around what the features of this new mobile have begun circulating.
Here's what you should expect from the upcoming Google Event.
A video speaks a thousand words.
It seems we have somewhat of a leaked video people and it’s revealed a lot of interesting things…
Don’t worry, this is a very PG leaked video – safe for all eyes. We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming Pixel 6 but rumours are flying about the Pixel 6 Pro.
That’s right, Google themselves have confirmed a Pixel 6 Pro and we’ve heard a lot about it from the internet.
TechRadar have brought to light a video found by M. Brandon Lee. Lee shared a video on his Twitter of what is rumoured to be the Pixel 6 Pro and boy is it a sight.
I think this may be the first hands on video leak of a Google Pixel 6 Pro.— M. Brandon Lee | THIS IS TECH TODAY (@thisistechtoday) September 21, 2021
FYI: The logo would indicate that this is likely an early production test unit, so that means there may be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/4QSvdktqA7
The video shows a devices in a grey shade with black accents. Photos have been circulating for a while, showing the rumoured Pixel 6 Pro design but this video brings a lot more to light.
The back of the device in this video takes glossy to a whole new level and you can see it shimmer when the light hits it.
We can also see a large camera block on the rear of the phone and a curved screen that looks the perfect size for those after a more immersive entertainment experience.
The logo on the back of the device in the video isn’t the bog standard Google one that you’re familiar with, but Lee suggests that this would be an early production test unit.
This means a whole bunch of changes could be implemented before this mobile hits the shops.
Lee has his own YouTube channel, which he uploaded a video to and discussed this supposed Pixel 6 Pro video.
According to him, the Pixel 6 Pro will be roughly the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which boasts an impressive 6.8-inch display – bigger than the new iPhone 13 Pro Max may we add.
Once again, this is all just speculation and we won’t have any specs confirmed until launch. Like normal, if we hear any other rumours, we’ll be sure to update this article.
Dazzle us Google.
TechRadar argue that Google actually gave a lot away about the design and the display of the Pixel 6.
The company officially revealed the device in a series of tweets back at the start of August and included a number of images to compliment them.
From the photos, we can see a glossy, silver camera block along the width of the back of the devices – the famous tool behind fantastic Pixel photographs.
It’s absolutely business in the front with an all-screen design and a punch-hole selfie cam too. We imagine this screen will create a more immersive viewing experience for Pixel 6 users.
You’ll be able to enjoy a three-tone design with a whole range of colours to choose from and totally dazzle anyone who passes by!
According to Tomsguide, the Pixel 6 will boast a stunning 6.4-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate – which if true, is perfect for streamers and gamers too.
If you’ve kept up to date with our rumour articles, you’ll recognise the name Jon Prosser. If not, he’s a well-known, reputable leaker among the mobile world.
He backs up this claim by Tomsguide who goes on to point out that the Pixel 6 will use OLED, making for a clearer picture every time.
Lights, camera, action.
Mobile photographers got a little snippet of what the Pixel 6 has in store for them from Google’s tweets.
The new mobile will have an epic dual camera – two lenses for double the fun. While their tweets didn’t give too much away about what the lenses will be, TechRadar claim that a source named Marques Bownlee said we should expect a main and ultra-wide lens.
If there’s any truth to this, those group shots on your lovely autumnal walks are about to get a whole lot easier.
This source went on to claim that video is getting a huge revamp on the Pixel 6 as a result of its new chipset. But we won’t get ahead of ourselves just yet.
Have you heard of the Google Tensor?
No? Well buckle up. The internet is absolutely raving about Google’s first custom chipset. This is the one thing that’s been confirmed on Google’s official website.
Google claim that it helps make the Pixel 6 the smartest, most secure and most personal mobile that Google have created.
TechRadar claim it will improve the cameras, speech recognition and so much more. Pair this with Android 12 and we think the Pixel 6 will change the game for Pixel mobiles.
With all this fun that’s going on, you’re going to need one hell of a battery to keep up. Google have kept their cards very close to their chest with this one.
According to TechRadar, the Pixel 6 will have a 4614mAh battery with faster wireless charging than the Pixel 5.
This would guarantee you longer-lasting fun with more speed to get boosted back up if you do run low.
Watch this space Pixel lovers.
The unveiling of the Pixel 6 has been confirmed to be 19th October 2021. We for one can't wait to hear all about it and finally assess which rumours are true and which aren't.
You can watch the event with us here and be one of the firsts to watch the magic unfold.
