Google is projected to return to offering an XL (even if it is rumored to be called the Pro now) variant with the upcoming Pixel 6 series. Now, a screen protector allegedly made for this phone has shown up on SlashLeaks, as has one for the vanilla 6. They seem to line up with earlier tips pointing to the devices' case designs.

Google is rumored to restore the traditional XL version to the Pixel series in 2021, having experimentally dropped it for the Android flagships' 5th generation. Then again, the 6 and 6 Pro are also now rumored to be a considerable departure from their predecessor in terms of design, with a new three-tone rear panel and more boxy form-factor overall.

Now, a SlashLeaks contributor has posted what is described as live images of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro's screen protectors. They more than hint at the relatively thin bezels and chin depicted in earlier renders for the 2 devices. Interestingly, the photos associated with the "6 Pro" involve cut-outs for a central punch-hole selfie camera, whereas all the "Pixel 6 screen protector" has is a slight indentation that might be for a front-facing speaker.

This may or may not represent more support for earlier leaks pointing to Google's first-gen under-display camera, although it is strange that it might be headed for the apparently flat-screened 6 rather than the curved-edged 6 Pro. On the other hand, these images may yet be found to hold no weight on the upcoming phones' release.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
