Google’s Pixel line of smartphones has traditionally been a staple of the Android armada for those of us who like our Android operating system without being as cluttered as possible. After the somewhat underwhelming Pixel 5, which meant the company had several mid-range phones and no real flagships to speak of, Google seems to have learned its lesson. With a non-Apple-y approach to leaking your own equipment A few weeks ahead of the launch, all eyes are on the upcoming pair of phones.

The Google Pixel 6 continues Android’s trend of adding computer vision and AI smarts to the photo-taking process, but also introduced some top-shelf hardware into the mix. The Pixel 6 reportedly gets a 50mpx wide-angle camera and a 12mpx ultra-wide camera.

The marketing pages also shed extra light on the claims Google is making about its battery technology.

Along with sharing a great deal of security with its main competitors, Google has also joined that battlefield, claiming “more layers of hardware security than any other phone”, reminding users that They’re introducing the Titan M2 security chip and a “five-year update” that will ensure it “gets more secure over time.” It’s not immediately clear whether this refers to a firmware update or an update to the OS, but it’s encouraging to see Android stand behind its phones, even if they are in oblivion.

As the launch date approaches, we expect to know more about the phone. We expect the pre-orders to start next week from October 19.
