Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have yet again been leaked before their October 19 launch. The specifications and features of the smartphones have been tipped by UK-based retailer listings. Both smartphones are shown to be powered by Google’s latest Tensor chip paired with Titan M2 security chip. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will support 30W fast charging support, however, the 30W charger will be sold separately. A tipster has also shared the official colour names of the two Pixel smartphones along with the memory options.
UK-based retailer Carphone Warehouse has accidentally leaked the upcoming Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro through individual landing pages on its website. The landing pages have since been removed, but notable tipster Evan Blass was able to take screenshots of them before they were delisted. The pages give a detailed description of the upcoming Google Pixel smartphones. Both smartphones are set to be unveiled on October 19.

As per the landing pages on the retailer’s website, both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be powered by Google’s Tensor SoC — optimised for efficiency but said to be 80 percent faster than the Pixel 5 with its Snapdragon 765G SoC — paired with the Titan M2 security chip. Both smartphones are said to get a 50-megapixel primary sensor — said to capture 150 percent more light than the previous Pixel smartphones – along with 12-megapixel ultra-wide cameras.
