New Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phone cases shown off next to Pixel 4 XL case highlights innovative camera housing design
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are already shaping up to ruffle plenty a feather upon release time (potentially October), with their bespoke Whitechapel processors and unexpected looks. There have been plenty of leaks and rumors about the two Pixel 6 phones over recent weeks, and now we have real-world photos of more cases for the upcoming smartphones.
Five images that initially appeared on Weibo (see below) star cases for the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro while a case for the Google Pixel 4 XL from 2019 also makes an appearance in a handy comparison. It’s clear to see that the older Pixel and the Pixel 6 are very similar in height and width, while unsurprisingly the Pixel 6 Pro has the height edge (6.7-in display vs. 6.4-in display for the non-Pro model).
The obvious main distinction between the three cases is the camera housing design for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. While the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 had square-shaped camera bumps in the top left-hand corner, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have camera housing bars that stretch from one side to the other and the camera sensors laid out in a line, with the Pro model featuring an additional cut-out in the case for its extra lens.
