Google Pixel 6 launch is scheduled for October 19. Though the company has revealed some of the key Pixel 6 specifications and features, it will announce the Pixel 6 Pro price and availability details at the event.

The new Pixel smartphones are confirmed to run Android 12 out of the box. What Google did not confirm at the time of the unveiling are the details of software support.

A new leak claims that Google Pixel 6, Google Pixel 6 Pro will come with four years of software support. In addition, the company will offer five years of security updates as well.

The company typically offers three years of software support for its Pixel smartphones. While it does not match Apple, Google could come close to the iPhone 13 maker, which provides software support for devices that are even five years old.

Google has not confirmed any details regarding the Pixel 6 series software support. Therefore, it is best to take the leaked details with a pinch of salt.

Google Pixel 6 specifications confirmed, so far, include a 6.7-inch LTPO OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate on the Pro model. The vanilla Pixel 6 comes with a 6.4-inch OLED panel with 90Hz refresh rate support.

Both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will feature an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. For security, both phones will feature the Titan M2 chip.

The Pixel 6 Pro will support 30W fast-charging support and 23W fast wireless charging support, while the standard Pixel 6 will support the same wired charging and slightly lower (21W) wireless charging.

The Pixel 6 Pro has a triple-camera setup, whereas the vanilla Pixel 6 has a dual-camera setup. Both phones share a 50MP primary camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. There is an additional 48MP 4x telephoto camera on the Pro model.

The Pixel 6 Pro is said to have the most advanced camera on a Google phone ever, claiming to capture 150 percent more light than the main sensor on the Pixel 5.

Both Google smartphones come with the company’s custom-developed Tensor chip.
