The Google Pixel series is Google’s replacement for the Nexus line, and has an extensive focus on photography, and the Pixel 6 seems to be taking that toll even more seriously.
Just a couple of days ago, there are concept renders on what the Pixel 6 and 6A might look like. The renders show a completely different design especially for the camera bump
A post from a tipster on Twitter showed that the Google Pixel 6 has a periscope camera, along with three other sensors, at least in leaks. According to a tipster, these designs are concept designs but may roll out in the production line as well. There is also what appears to be a fourth sensor as well, that is the flicker/spectral sensor.
Based on the design and concept renders and camera leaks, the new Pixel 6 will have a horizontally-arranged camera system that goes from left to right. Unlike the Google Pixel 5A, which is also bound for release this year, the Google Pixel 6 and 6A are expected to have the custom Whitechapel chipset that was manufactured in cooperation with Samsung.
The phone may also appear in Google I/O 2021, but there is no word for official launch, or even the official design.
