The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro designs have already leaked and now have the latter's rear-facing cameras. Apparently, Google has finally equipped a Pixel smartphone with a periscope camera, which would be a huge change for the Pixel series.

Last week, Jon Prosser revealed Pixel 6 series renders, showing a redesign from last year's Pixel 5. Apparently, Google will release the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro this year with a custom SoC, supposedly one that Google has developed with Samsung. Google has codenamed that SoC 'Whitechapel', but it also carries the model number GS101. You can read more about 'Whitechapel' here.

Now, supposed photos of the Pixel 6 Pro's rear-facing cameras have emerged. While their arrangement is at odds with those shown in Prosser's renders, the images below are clearly of a device with a case on it. @MayurGadhiya6 claims as much too and insists that they are arranged horizontally as Prosser's renders suggest.

If these photos are legitimate, then it seems that Google has adopted a periscope camera for its next smartphone. The photos also shown two other lenses, which we suspect are the device's primary and ultra-wide-angle cameras. We have been unable to verify these images yet, so we would take them with a healthy amount of scepticism. A periscope camera on a Pixel smartphone would be a welcome improvement from the 12 MP sensor that Google has relied on for the last few years, though.
