Google Pixel 6 showed off in leaked listing ahead of launch, report says


Google released images of the Pixel 6 already, but now details about the features have apparently leaked.


Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are set to launch at an Oct. 19 event. But upcoming Pixel specs and features have already been released — likely on accident — by UK online retailer Carphone Warehouse, Gizmodo reported Monday. 

The Carphone Warehouse listing has since been removed, but screenshots were posted to Twitter by well-known leaker Evan Blass, aka @evleaks.

The features shown in the listing include a 6.4-inch display for the Pixel 6 and a 6.7-inch LTPO screen with a 120Hz refresh rate for the Pixel 6 Pro. The upcoming smartphones are said to include a new Titan M2 chip for better on-device security and five years of security updates. The listing also shows the Pixel 6’s new camera features including an updated Face Unblur, Motion Mode and Magic Eraser. 

Google’s Pixel 6 and 6 Pro event will be prerecorded and streamed on Google’s event site at 10 a.m. PT Tuesday, Oct. 19.

The upcoming smartphones made a brief appearance in August before Google launched the Pixel 5A. Since then, we’ve gotten a couple of glimpses of the new Pixel phones, but not every detail has been revealed. We know the Pixel 6 will come with a new in-house chip, called Tensor, which could boost computer power and video capabilities. The Pixel 6 Pro model is also getting an additional telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom. 

Google didn’t immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
