So let me quote MKBHD here. There are smartphone leaks and then thereare Google smartphone leaks. We're less than 10 days away from the launchevent of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro but in what's arguably the biggest Pixel 6 leak we'vehad so far, the marketing material of the new Pixel handsets have been revealed thatshows every last bit of info including how long Google is planning to offer softwareupdates to the handset.
Basically, this is going to be a mini Pixel6 launch event. And not only that we have a full assemblyvideo of the Pixel 6, I'm not going to show it here for copyright reasons but I'll linkthe video down in the description for you to check it out. First up, one of the coolest camera featuresof the Pixel 6 is magic eraser and Google is showcasing here how neatly this could eraseunwanted objects in the photo like these two people in the background.
Samsung already showcased this feature on the Galaxy S21 and it does a decent job at it, I mean it's not flawless so we'll haveto wait and see if the Pixel 6 can do it better considering Google is the master in AI. Google also showcases face deblur which asthe name suggests can deblur the face if it was captured in motion.
There's also a Motion Mode which appears to“add extra depth” to a shot by leaving some sense of motion. In this case, a Ferris Wheel spinning behindtwo people who are still. Google has also made some tweaks in the camerato make sure it accurately represents the darker skin tones that other existing phoneseither overexpose or underexpose, and they have shown some portrait photos from the Pixel6 that looks absolutely stunning.
The Pixel 6 Pro will have a 94-degree fieldof view to capture wide-angle photos. This feature is not available on the regularPixel 6. Also, the main 50MP rear camera on both handsetscan capture 150% more light compared to what was in the Pixel 5. This is due to a new bigger sensor and Googleshowcases how big it is compared to the one on the Pixel 5.
The 6 Pro also has a 4x telephoto camera with20x super res zoom and here's a sample of it from Google. Now coming to the software support. Google confirms that they will proved 5 yearsof software support to the Pixel 6. Now a lot of websites are saying this wouldmean 5 new platform updates. But I don't think that's the case becausespecifically mentioned here that it's 5 years of security updates which likely means 4 platformupdates and 5 years of security patches which is still better than every Android OEM includingSamsung who offer 3 years of platform updates and 4 years of security updates.
The battery life on the Pixel 6 Pro is goingto be phenomenal. Google mentions that it can offer an all-daybattery even on 5G. In fact, during their testing, the averagebattery life was 34 hours. Google gave some additional context sayingthis battery life is based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of otherfeatures.
So we'll have to wait for the real-world scenarioto see how this holds up but don't be surprised if the Pixel 6 Pro takes the crown from theiPhone 13 Pro max as the battery king. Google also shows the 6 Pro can 0 to 50% in30 minutes using the new 30W charger. Google will also provide a 23W wireless chargingstand. Google says the tensor chip will offer 80%faster performance.
They didn't mention compared to which devicebut likely it's the Pixel 5. The display can go from 10Hz to 120Hz on thePro, there's gorilla glass victus on both the handsets and IP68 dust and water-resistantrating.
