Google Pixel 6: Leaked CAD renders showcase a 6.4-inch display but no periscope camera
OnLeaks has published more renders of an upcoming Google smartphone, this time the Pixel 6. On Thursday, the renowned leaker detailed the Pixel 6 Pro, more or less matching the renders published by Jon Prosser. Unsurprisingly, the Pixel 6 is, basically, a smaller Pixel 6 Pro.
According to OnLeaks and 91Mobiles, the Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch display, within which Google has incorporated a front-facing camera and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The pair claim that the Pixel 6 measures 158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9 mm, which would make it about as large as the Pixel 4 XL. By contrast, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 measure 147.1 x 68.8 x 8.2 mm and 144.7 x 70.4 x 8 mm, respectively.
However, the Pixel 6's camera housing will protrude by another 2.9 mm, making it to 11.8 mm thick at its thickest point. 91Mobiles and OnLeaks assert that the Pixel 6 will only have two rear-facing cameras too, negating the need for such a wide camera housing.
Google is expected to equip the Pixel 6 with its first SoC, made in collaboration with Samsung. It is unknown when Google will announce the Pixel 6 series, but its launch will probably coincide with Android 12's.
