The Google Pixel 6 will be equipped with a dual rear camera module comprising a 50MP primary sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide lens. The Pixel 6 Pro is said to offer a similar camera arrangement but with an additional 48MP telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom and OIS (optical image stabilization) support. On the front, they will have a 12MP selfie camera.
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will draw power from a custom Tensor chipset, paired with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The former will house a 4,614mAh battery, while the latter will pack a 5,000mAh battery. They will support 33W fast-charging and boot Android 12 OS. The duo will also offer Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity.
Google will announce the official pricing and availability details of the Pixel 6 series at the time of the launch, which is expected to take place on October 28. However, considering the specifications, the line-up is likely to start at around Rs. 70,000.
