The Google Pixel 6 might not be as expensive as its premium design suggests, if recent tips are to be believed.
To place that in context, last year’s Pixel 5 cost €629 at launch, so it represents a year-on-year bump of just €20 for the base model. The Pixel 4 before that cost €699.
Now consider that everything points to the baseline Pixel 6 being a far more premium device than the Pixel 5 before it. Google’s new smartphone is likely to feature a more desirable three-tone industrial design with a matte aluminium finish, a much more capable custom Tensor processor, a larger AMOLED display, and a vastly improved camera system.
Elsewhere, the report confirms that Google will be officially announcing the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on October 19.

We say ‘officially announcing’, but of course Google has already announced the Pixel 6 in a way. While it didn’t delve into specifications, we received a look at the phone and the confirmation that it would be powered by a custom Tensor chip back in early August.
We’ve also received a steady stream of leaks and rumours, seemingly from solid sources. There really isn’t much we don’t know about Google’s next smartphone line at this point.
