A Pixel 6 Pro assembly video has leaked, confirming several aspects about the device in the process. The video also contains a hands-on photo of the Pixel 6 Pro's front, nearly two weeks before Google unveils the device.

We are still a few weeks from the Pixel 6 series' official unveiling. However, a Pixel 6 Pro assembly video has leaked online, as have two retailer listings. As we have discussed, the latter confirms everything that Google plans to talk about regarding the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 on October 19.

However, the assembly video highlights a few aspects that Google decided against including in its marketing material. As the screenshots below show, the Pixel 6 Pro has a 5,003 mAh battery, ever so slightly higher than XDA Developers claimed last month. Unsurprisingly, the battery takes up a large area of the Pixel 6 Pro's chassis, which Google has covered with a large pull tab.

Additionally, the video shows that Google has applied a copper shield behind the display, which sits atop the battery and SoC. There is also a large cut-out for the device's fingerprint scanner that Google has positioned about a quarter of the way up the display. The Pixel 6 Pro will support facial recognition via its front-facing camera too, though.

Moreover, one shot provides a close up of the Pixel 6 Pro, embedded above. Unfortunately, the image confirms the loss of the Pixel 5's uniform bezels. Instead, the Pixel 6 Pro has three evenly-sized bezels and a thicker bottom one. Still, the Pixel 6 Pro has relatively slim bezels, especially compared to the Pixel 4 XL.
