Google Pixel 6 leak gives us the best look at the Google event yet


The Google Pixel 6 launch is less than a week away, but it looks increasingly like there won’t be any surprises for the day itself.

After a UK retailer accidentally posted advertising pages for both Pixel 6 models, it’s a leaker Evan Blass has tweeted images of four of the six Google Pixel 6 colors that should be available when the phones go on sale later this month.

This is the Pixel 6 in what Pale calls the “Seafoam Green” section above it.

It’s a pretty eye-catching color, and this two-tone design looks like it works well. But we won’t be able to say for sure until we get our hands on the phone.

With the Pixel 6 in “Stormy Black”, the differentiation is less clear. Most of the back is a deep black, but the upper area seems to shift into a slate gray. This is probably the handset for those who like phones to be less noticeable.

The Pixel 6 Pro should also be available in the same color. And Blass estimates that it looks practically identical to its smaller brother, with just a larger area above the camera tape.

The Pixel 6 Pro will also reportedly be available as something lighter – “Cloudy White”. Here the white case has a silvery upper area above the characteristic black camera strap. It looks a bit like a phone in Star Wars Stormtrooper garb.

This is according to the marketing literature shared by the leaker M. Brandon Lee, represents four of the six 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 will be available in the meantime in “Sorta Sunny”, (think of two-tone Tellow) “Cloudy White” and “Stormy Black”.

It’s not difficult to line up the four colors depicted by Blass with the names Lee leaked, which leaves only two outstanding. But we’ve probably seen these in previous leaks. This, from the Carphone Warehouse cached promo page, is likely the Pixel 6 in Kinda Coral.

And that’s probably the Pixel 6 Pro in “Sorta Sunny” from the deleted Pixel 6 Pro page.

With Lee previously highlighting a possible award in the same leaked literature, there isn’t much more to learn about the Pixel 6 in a week.

But it still remains an exciting phone, not least because in a world in which almost everyone except Apple uses the same Qualcomm chipsets, Google is going its own way with the Tensor SoC. So far, Google has promised that the new processor will lead to a “transformed experience for the camera, speech recognition and other Pixel 6 features” but has indicated that more is to come.

And while we seem to know almost everything about the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, there’s also a long-standing rumor that Google will reveal the Pixel Fold before the end of the year. Since Google doesn’t tend to host multiple events per year, for 2021 it feels like it’s now or never.

The Pixel Event will take place 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 the latest leaks and rumors.
