Carphone Warehouse filters Pixel 6 and 6 Pro in detail

google pixel 6 pro leaks

We can’t really say we’re surprised at this point – the Pixel 6 duo leaked once again. This time it was Carphone Warehouse that jumped the gun when the retailer posted the pages for both models. They’ve been taken down now, but not before Evan Blass

he saw them. Here’s everything you might want to know about Google’s upcoming phones ahead of its October 19 announcement.

We will start with the Pixel 6 Pro. It works with Google’s first custom chipset. Previously, the company designed an imaging chip, but that was not an integrated design. The Google Tensor chipset, as it’s called, has AI hardware in the device to speed up features like Night Sight, Portrait Mode, and the new Magic Eraser (more on that in a bit). It is optimized for energy efficiency, but manages to be 80% faster than the Snapdragon 765G in the Pixel 5.

The Pro model has the most advanced camera on a Google phone. It starts with the main module whose 50 MP sensor is much larger than the small 1 / 2.55 ”sensor inside the Pixel 5. It captures 150% more light, which will be a great help for night photos.

Also, the telephoto lens is back. It offers a 4x optical magnification, which can be magnified to 20x with Super Res Zoom. There is not much to the ultra-wide camera other than that it will have a 12 MP sensor.

The selfie camera itself will be quite wide with a 94º field of view (in RAW mode, presumably before lens correction).

Now for Magic Eraser: it is an artificial intelligence tool that removesabove persons and objects from your photo. This will be most useful in busy tourist areas where you can’t get the place to yourself. There’s also Face Unblur, which rescues blurry photos by restoring the subject’s face.

The Pixel 6 Pro will support a 30W charge via USB-C, hitting 50% in 30 minutes (30W charger will be sold separately). Fast 23W wireless charging and battery sharing are also supported.

The screen will be a 6.7 ”OLED LTPO panel with a variable refresh rate ranging from 10 Hz to 120 Hz. It will be covered with Gorilla Glass Victus, the whole phone will enjoy IP68 dust and water resistance.

Security will be a key feature for the phone with the new Titan M2 chip, a sequel to the Titan M that was introduced with the Pixel 3 series. To help you fight new attacks, Google will provide 5 years of security updates.

Other notable features include offline translations in 55 languages. You can point the camera at a sign to translate it or get translated subtitles for a podcast. The At a Glance feature will display relevant information for upcoming events, for example your plane ticket. Pixels will come with the new Android 12, although some features are exclusive to Google.

Finally, some accessories. There’s the 30W USB-C charger, of course. The Pixel Stand wireless charger can turn your phone into a hub that can control smart devices and a photo frame that displays images from Google Photos. There is also a translucent protective sleeve made from over 30% post-consumer recycled plastics.

Moving on to the smallest Pixel 6. It will also be powered by the Google Tensor chipset paired with the Titan M2 security chip. The phone will feature the same 50 MP main and 12 MP ultra-wide cameras, but the telephoto module will be missed.

The screen will measure 6.4 ”and will be a normal OLED. It will have a high refresh rate, but it doesn’t sound like an LTPO panel. It will still be covered in Gorilla Glass Victus and the phone gets an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.


The same accessories are available for the smaller Pixel 6, although wireless charging is a fraction slower – 21W.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be released on October 19, but we must warn you that they will only be available in 8 countries, so getting one will depend on where you live. The smaller Pixel 6 should start at € 650.
