Looking at the global market, Google phones can only be classified as “Others.” Statistics released by IDC in June 2020 show that the total global shipments of Google Pixel series mobile phones in 2019 have exceeded 7.2 million units, a significant increase of 52% year-on-year in 2018, and this can only account for 0.4% of the global share at the time.
But Google has not given up on the mobile phone industry yet. In the recent renderings of the Pixel series posted by Jon Posser, the new phones seem to show a completely different concept from the previous generations. As compared with the previous generation, the design of the Pixel 6 series can be said to be “completely subverted.” Both the design language and the overall style have undergone drastic changes.
Judging from the rendering, the two models of the Google Pixel 6 series use perforated screens. Like Samsung’s usual design, Google has also placed the front camera in the center of the top of the screen, which brings about the screen-to-body ratio. It is also very high; the large forehead of the upper frame is also canceled, and the four sides of the frame are controlled to a very narrow degree, which is pleasing to the eye.
It is reported that the front camera of the Pixel 6 series mobile phones will support 4K video recording, which can be said to be a qualitative leap compared to the previous generation.
The camera module is the biggest change in the Pixel 6 series. Google finally gave up the square module in the upper left corner. The back panel of the phone uses a curved ribbon to place the lens hardware; Pixel 6 has two cameras and an LED flash, while Pixel 6 Pro uses a three-camera configuration. The specific parameters are unknown.
However, Google’s camera quality is still very good. In the early days when various companies adopted dual or even triple cameras, Google used single-camera models with “computational photography”. It is believed that the Pixel 6 series will be upgraded on the basis of hardware upgrades. The imaging quality can usher in an improvement.
