NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 15: The new Google Pixel 4 smartphone and cases are on display at a Google launch event on October 15, 2019 in New York City. The new Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones start at $ 799 and will start shipping on October 24.

Rumor has it that the next Pixel phone has a drastic overhaul. Therefore, most are wondering what visual changes the smartphone will bring.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro disclosures are based heavily on speculation. Perhaps the cases designed for upcoming flagships could suggest some concrete design clues.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro cases

PhoneArena reported that recent cases believed to involve the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are surfacing on Weibo, a Chinese Twitter counterpart. One of the cases revealed that a variant is almost as large as the Pixel 4 XL released in 2019.

Also, the leaked case hinted at the return of the zoom camera, which sits in a bulky rear bump. And, of course, it shows the precise dimensions the devices are likely to feature.

Previously, on June 16, TechRadar reported another case sighting of Google Pixel 6, which the Ice Universe leaker tweeted. The case has a transparent design, unlike the navy blue Weibo version which appeared the next day.

Zoom or telephoto return

Additionally, the Weibo leak revealed that the vertical bulge on the back of Pixel 6 smartphones has an additional hole compared to its predecessor. As such, it spawned speculation that the dead telephoto shooter is returning to Google smartphones.

If the leak turns out to be correct, the zoom lens adds to the main, wide and ultra-wide cameras.

In hindsight, Google pushed back the telephoto lens from the Pixel 5. Previously, the Pixel 4 had a 16 MP zoom lens.

On the contrary, the transparent case did not display the extra hole for a mystery camera.

Dimensions of the Google Pixel 6

The case on Weibo also showed that the Pixel 6 gets slightly similar dimensions to the Pixel 4 XL. The latter has a 6.3 inch screen, while the next phone has 6.4 inches.

In contrast, the Pixel 6 Pro has a 6.7-inch body, the biggest Google phone of all time.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – OCTOBER 04: Rick Osterloh, SVP Hardware at Google Inc., speaks during an event to showcase the Google Pixel phone and other Google products on October 4, 2016 in San Francisco, California. Google is entering the mobile device market in an attempt to challenge Apple’s iPhone in the premium smartphone category.

Google Pixel 6: design leaks

From now on, design-wise, the Pixel 6 is expected to sport a two-tone design, smaller bezels, and a hole-punch camera, in line with previous leaks.

However, a patent proposes that future iterations of Google phones remove any discomfort visible on the screen. The company uses technology to hide the selfie shooter under the screen.

Well, that’s not surprising, as smartphone makers have focused on minimizing bezels on the screens of their devices. However, the camera and horror sensors decrease the effort. Hence the need to eliminate it.
