Now that Apple has unveiled its smartphone champion for the subsequent 12 months, Android locals are probably preparing for what might be the foremost notable Google phone in recent years. Supported leaks and rumors, the Pixel 6, particularly the Pixel 6 Pro, will be breaking far away from the Pixel trend within the past five years since the primary Google-designed phone. That’s pretty obvious in looks, but there are also tons of other changes both inside and out of doors that are now being revealed or confirmed by what could also be the primary hands-on video of the Pixel 6 Pro.
To be clear, the device shown within the video is an early production unit. This is often Tech Todays. Brandon Lee explains that the brand on the rear, which is not the Google logo, proves that the ultimate product may need a couple of tweaks that refine the planning. That said, it still gives us a thought of what to expect during a few weeks, both in terms of the phone’s appearance and, to some extent, its internals.
I think this may be the first hands on video leak of a Google Pixel 6 Pro.
FYI: The logo would indicate that this is likely an early production test unit, so that means there may be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/4QSvdktqA7

The Pixel 6 Pro’s back is extremely glossy, and therefore the gray/black dual-tone combo is predominantly gray. Unlike all previous Pixel phones, Google’s next flagship features a screen that curves off to the edges, almost like many high-end phones lately. Mr. Lee comments that the phone is nearly almost like the Galaxy S21 Ultra in size, as are often seen in one photo that places it side-by-side what seems to be a Pixel 4a XL.
Another video includes some still photos of the phone, including a neighborhood of the settings page and a screenshot of the CPU-Z app. The latter reveals the much-debated makeup of the Pixel 6 Pro’s Tensor processor, confirming the rather disappointing speculation that its two “mid-tier” cores are Cortex-A76 cores instead of the newer Cortex-A78. Fortunately, there are indeed two Cortex-X1 cores to run things at the highest.
There may additionally be some debate over the Pixel 6‘s unusual design, but it’s still a fresh change from what has almost been an uneventful series of Pixel phones. It’ll be more interesting to ascertain its actual performance, though, given this may be the primary time Google will put its self-designed processor during a phone. Of course, there’ll be no shortage of comparisons with Apple’s A and M chips, so Google’s AI-powered optimizations better are up to the task.
