Google was ahead of possible news leaks about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro by announcing the phones back in August, including the fact that they would run on the company’s long-developed tensor chip. However, it’s possible that some leakers have recently got their hands on an actual unit. A video posted on Twitter by @thisistechtoday may show a pre-production version of the Pixel 6 Pro with its triple rear camera.
Of course, Google wasn’t shy about sharing what the device would look like – even installing dummy units in its NYC store for people to stare at. To that end, the device spun around in this short clip looks like we’ve seen so far – regardless of the weird Google logo placeholder. The phone in this video appears to have a hole punch selfie camera, and all of the buttons are on the right edge.
I think this could be the first video leak from a Google Pixel 6 Pro.
For your information, the logo indicates that this is likely an early production test device. That means there can be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/4QSvdktqA7

Just like the Pixel 6 Pro that Google shared, the phone in this video appears to have a metallic and shiny rail that surrounds the raised camera bar, as opposed to the darker, matte-textured rail of the Pixel 6. Admittedly, in this footage it’s hard to tell.
While we haven’t seen what the phone looks like, the notable thing about this video is that the display is on, which on the Pixel 6 or 6 Pro is an angle we haven’t seen much from outside of this new display. Granted, however, it’s a pretty boring look that shows the same screen you see during the Android 12 setup process. The Pixel 6 Pro has a 6.7-inch QHD + screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
We still don’t know exactly when Google plans to completely remove the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro cases, or when the prices and a release date will be split. But it should be soon, maybe sometime in October if previous years suggest it.
