The Google Pixel 6 launch is less than a week away, but it increasingly looks like there won’t be any surprises left for the day itself.
After a UK retailer accidentally posted promotional pages for the two Pixel 6 models, leaker Evan blass tweeted photos of four of the six shades that are expected to be available when the phones go on sale later this month.
It’s the Pixel 6 in what Blass calls “Seafoam Green”. section above.
It’s a pretty eye-catching color and this two-tone design seems to work well. But we won’t be able to say for sure until we get our hands on the phone.
For the Pixel 6 “Stormy Black”, the differentiation is less clear. The main part of the back is in a deep black shade, but the top area appears to be turning slate gray. This is probably the handset for those who like their phones to be less flashy.
The Pixel 6 Pro is also expected to be available in the same shade. And Blass reckons he looks virtually identical to his little brother, with just a larger area above the camera strip.
The Pixel 6 Pro would also be available as something a little lighter – “Cloudy White”.
This, according to the marketing literature shared by the leaker Mr. Brandon Lee, represents four of the six total colors in which the Pixel 6 family will be available. Lee claims that the base Pixel 6 will be available in three colors: “Kinda Coral”, “Sorta Seafoam” and “Stormy Black”. The Pixel 6 Pro, meanwhile, will be available in “Sorta Sunny”, (think two-tone tellow) “Cloudy White” and “Stormy Black”.
It’s not difficult to line up the four colors of Blass pictured with the leaked Lee names, leaving only two hanging around. But we’ve probably seen them in previous leaks. This, from the cached Carphone Warehouse promotion page, is probably the Pixel 6 in “Kinda Coral”.
And it’s probably the Pixel 6 Pro in “Sorta Sunny” of the deleted Pixel 6 Pro page.
Since Lee previously highlighted a possible price tag in the same leaked literature, there’s not much more to learn about the Pixel 6 in a week.
But it’s still an exciting phone, not least because in a world where almost everyone except Apple uses the same Qualcomm chipsets, Google is going its own way with the Tensor SoC. So far, Google has promised the new processor will result in a “transformed experience for the Pixel 6’s camera, voice recognition and other features,” but hinted there was more to come.
And while we seem to know everything about the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, there’s also a long-standing rumor that Google will also unveil the Pixel Fold before the end of the year. Since Google doesn’t tend to host multiple events per year, it feels like it’s now or never for 2021.
The Pixel event will be held on Tuesday, October at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET, and you can watch it live. In the meantime, check out our Pixel 6 page for all the latest leaks and rumors.
