Alleged Google Pixel 6 Pro hands-on video showcases camera sensors, glossy design and curved screen

We have our first look at what could be the Google Pixel 6 Pro out in the wild, thanks to a video posted by YouTube content creator This Is Tech Today. It showcases the smartphone's key design elements, such as a curved screen, hole-punch selfie camera, rear glass and triple-camera array.

Over the past few weeks, we've learned quite a lot about the upcoming Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagship smartphones. Some of the information was straight from Google, so we can rest easy knowing it's true. Now, we get to see the Pixel 6 Pro in real life via a hands-on video posted by Techtuber Brandon Lee, aka This Is Tech Today.

We can see what looks like a pre-released Pixel 6 Pro being set up for the first time. Its screen curves slightly at the edges, similar to what we've seen on high-end Samsung smartphones. The dark background makes it hard to ascertain what the bezels will be like, but earlier leaks told us that they wouldn't exactly be subtle. Lastly, the volume rocker and power button are next to each other on the right edge.

Things get interesting when we get to the back of the Pixel 6 Pro. For starters, we can see the prominent camera bump jutting out. Keeping in line with most modern-day flagships, the Pixel 6 Pro will also be sandwiched between two layers of Gorilla Glass. It appears to be quite glossy, and somewhat of a fingerprint magnet, so one would be better off putting it in a case. We previously learned that the Pixel 6 Pro would ship with a 1440p, 120Hz Samsung LTPO AMOLED panel.

Multiple reports told us that the Pixel 6 Pro would ship with three camera sensors at the back, including a square-shaped telephoto lens that has shown up in leaked renders. While the video doesn't specify the actual hardware used, the Pixel 6 Pro is expected to feature a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor, 12MP Sony IMX386 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 48MP Sony IMX586 telephoto lens.

Brandon emphasizes that the Pixel 6 Pro in question is a PVT (production validation test) unit and that it will be mostly identical to the real deal. The weird-looking logo at the back reaffirms his claim. Lastly, the video also confirms the somewhat odd core configuration of the Pixel 6 Pro's Tensor SoC, which is said to include two ARM Cortex-X1 cores (2.8GHz), two Cortex-A76 cores (2.25GHz) and four Cortex-A55 cores (1.8GHz).
