The latest version of Google's camera app contains clues about two of its upcoming Pixel smartphones. Next up for Google is the Pixel 5a, which is supposedly due for release this summer. However, the app also contains information on the Pixel 6 about its cameras and display.

The latest Google camera app update has thrown up some intriguing details about the company's next Pixel smartphones, according to 9to5Google. It is unclear how many smartphones Google plans to release this year, but we would expect there to be at least a Pixel 5a and a Pixel 6. 9to5Google's findings reinforce this, although there may be two Pixel 6 models.

OnLeaks has already demonstrated that the Pixel 5a will look like last year's Pixel 4a (5G), with a 6.2-inch display, two rear-facing cameras and a capacitive fingerprint scanner. However, 9to5Google asserts that Google has equipped the Pixel 5a with a punch-hole that has a 10-pixel shorter radius than the 65-pixel punch-hole on the Pixel 4a (5G). If that is the case, then the Pixel 5a's punch-hole should be slightly less obtrusive than the punch-hole on the Pixel 4a (5G) is, although not to the extent as Xiaomi has managed with the Redmi K40 series.

The updated Google camera app apparently confirms that the Pixel 6 will receive a smaller punch-hole compared to the one that the company includes on the Pixel 5. Additionally, Google has reputedly centred the Pixel 6's front-facing camera, which we have mocked-up above. The Pixel 6 may be the first Google smartphone to support 4K video recording using its front-facing camera too, although it is unclear if Google plans to re-use the sensor from the Pixel 5. Other specifications about the Pixel 6 remain unknown at this stage, unfortunately.
