The internal hardware is unknown. Google could go for a Snapdragon 778G chipset or it could mount a Mid-range ‘tensioner’. As you know, it has been the great novelty of the Pixel 6, the first SoC for a client device created internally by Google, in line with the trend of own chips that Apple promoted years ago and that today we see in Samsung with the Exynos or Huawei with the Kyrin. The SoC is expected to be supplemented with 6 or 8 Gbytes of RAM and up to 128 Gbytes for internal storage.

The phone will measure approximately 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7 mm (10.4mm if rear camera bulge is included). The volume controls and the power button are on the right side of the frame.

The informant says that the screen will be a 6.2 inch OLEDWhile the main camera will have two sensors with the original Pixel 6’s 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 leading the way and a single LED flash.
