Up until now, we have learned quite a lot about the new Pixel phones, thanks to several leaks and Google themselves. But still, a lot remains to be stirred in order to churn out the details. Well, so many factfinders have been on this hunting already and trying to uncover some hidden information.
In the same quest, a leak has surfaced that doesn’t particularly reveal anything new but does offer a closer look at the Pixel 6 Pro. A video on the YouTube channel “This is Tech Today” shows a prototype of the Pixel 6 Pro and reveals what the device will end up look like. This is because the prototype appears to be from a Product Validation Test (PVT) batch which means it should match the final design.
Well, moving on, the hands-on video shows the Pixel 6 Pro embraces a polished and glossy back. A bar-shaped module on the back is carrying three cameras. On the front, there is a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera.
Later in the video, the YouTuber also reveals that he obtained a couple of more photos of the Pixel 6 Pro that confirms the architecture of the Tensor chip.
The image, in fact, corroborates what folks over at XDA Developers were able to uncover a few days back. The CPU-Z app clearly confirms the Pixel 6 Pro has two Cortex-X1 cores and two Cortex-A76 cores, apart from four Cortex-A55 cores. Even the frequencies of the cores are the same as previously decoded.
Well, the exact launch date of the Pixel 6-series is still unknown but it is expected to launch somewhere in October. It was previously reported that the pre-orders for the Pixel 6 lineup might happen on October 19, which could be the same day as the official launch.
