Google Pixel 6 teasers promise five years of Android security updates

Points Highlighted:

  • The product pages also hint at battery life past 24 hours “even on 5G,” with fast 30W wired charging and reverse charging through Battery Share. There’s a new “twice as powerful” Pixel Stand for wireless charging, too. The 6.4-inch Pixel 6 and 6.7-inch 6 Pro will both tout Gorilla Glass Victus as well as IP68 dust and water resistance, although you’ll have to spring for the 6 Pro if you want an adaptive 120Hz display — you’ll have to ‘settle’ for a Smooth Display (likely 90Hz) on the smaller model.

  • The teasers tend to cover officially-released details beyond that, although they do provide a few more details. Not surprisingly, Google is interested in camera tricks — Magic Eraser eliminates photobombers, Face Unblur keeps subjects in focus, and an ultra-wide front camera helps with group selfies. The Pixel 6 will have a 50MP main sensor (up from 12MP) and a 12MP ultra-wide, while the 6 Pro will add a 48MP telephoto lens to the mix.

Carphone’s listings don’t dive much further into specs. All the same, it’s evident Google is determined to treat the Pixel 6 as a flagship in terms of support, not just performance. Other Android vendors might have a harder time following suit (they’re often tied to policies from chipmakers like Qualcomm), but this could give you at least one option if you want iPhone-like security updates without being tied to Apple’s ecosystem.
