New Pixel 6 teaser from Google Japan offers a look at the UI and fuels the hype train for the "coming soon" smartphone
It’s widely believed the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be launched by Google in the middle of October (the 19th has been suggested) and Google Japan has been fueling the hype for the non-Pro variant of the forthcoming devices. A 30-second video clip (embedded below) offers fans a look at the user interface of the Google Pixel 6 while also reminding viewers about the presence of the Tensor chip and the unique rear design of the phone.
Thanks to translation work provided by 9To5Google, we are informed that Google starts the teaser discussing how smartphones tend to look very similar to each other nowadays, with the Pixel 6 ready to stand out from the crowd with its unique design. Music widgets are highlighted in the initial glimpse of the Pixel 6’s UI, followed by shots of apps for typical smartphone utilities such as weather, battery, messages, and the clock.
There’s a brief starring moment for the Google Tensor processor, which by all accounts is potentially capable of shaking up the Snapdragon/Exynos/Dimensity-dominated hierarchy, and another look at the Pixel 6’s familiar idiosyncratic main camera housing. Unfortunately, there don’t seem to be any Pixel 6 release date clues in this particular teaser, as the clock reveals a date of October 1 and a time of 9.30, but the video does serve to keep hype levels high for the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices.
