Google has included more tidbits about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in the latest Android 12 beta, according to a report. Supposedly, Android 12 Beta 3 confirms multiple camera details about the pair, including the size of their front-facing punch holes. The display resolutions of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro can be inferred, too.

9to5Google has done more digging into Android 12 Beta 3, the latest open beta of Google's upcoming OS. Previously, XDA Developers discovered camera specifications about the Pixel 6 series, while an older beta build seemingly confirmed several upcoming Pixel smartphone codenames.

According to 9to5Google, the latest Google Camera app contains information about the front-facing cameras in the Pixel 6 series. Apparently, the Pixel 6 Pro's front-facing camera is 70 pixels in diameter, 5 pixels wider than the equivalent in the Pixel 5. By contrast, 9to5Google states that the Pixel 6 has a 55-pixel wide front-facing camera.

Moreover, the website claims that the Pixel 6 Pro will be capable of shooting 4K videos with its front-facing camera. This feature will not be present on the Pixel 6, though. Additionally, the Google Camera app contains an ID for a 'front torch' relating to the Pixel 6 series. 9to5Google infers 'front torch' as referencing a front-facing LED flash. However, unclear why Google would include this on the Pixel 6 series, based on the renders that have leaked so far.

Furthermore, 9to5Google argues that the Pixel 6 has a 1080p display, the same as the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5. Supposedly, Google has equipped the Pixel 6 Pro with a 1440p panel, matching the resolution that the Pixel 4 XL offers. The Pixel 6 series is expected to arrive in the autumn alongside the release of Android 12.
