The Google Pixel 6 is expected in the coming months, and now the CEO of Google has spoken for the first time about the upcoming smartphone series.
While Sundar Pichai didn’t mention the Google Pixel 6 or Google Pixel 6 XL by name, he was referring to the company’s “fall lineup”, which is expected to include the next flagship phone.
Pichai said, “I’m really excited about our fall lineup that will showcase Android 12 and some deep tech investments that help us push the boundaries.”
Pichai continued, “Pixel remains at the heart of this long-term strategy and I am proud of the way the team continues to bring the best of Google with our range of useful devices including Nest and Fitbit. You can get all of these devices at our first store in New York City. And I look forward to seeing some new products out there soon.”
That doesn’t give us anything specific about the Google Pixel 6 yet, but with Pichai starting to hint at upcoming devices, we can probably expect to hear more about the new smartphones in the coming months.
Analysis: What are deep tech investments?
Google’s “deep technology investment” that Pichai is referring to has not been confirmed, but it is highly suspected to be linked to the chipset you can expect to find in the Google Pixel 6 series.
Lots of leaks and rumors including a detailed report from 9to5GoogleWe suggest that Google is working on its first processor, so upcoming devices won’t come with Qualcomm chips like previous Pixel devices.
The new chipset is said to be codenamed Whitechapel and has apparently been developed entirely with the Pixel series in mind. What exactly these chipsets can do and what a third-party option can’t do is not clear.
We’ll have to wait until the Google Pixel 6 comes out to see how powerful the Whitechapel alternative is to the Snapdragon 888 and other top chipsets. We expect official Google Pixel 6 news at the end of 2021.
