Together with Google giving us a brand new high-res render to gawk at till the Pixel 6 lineup is in our arms, Mishaal Rahman of XDA Builders has uncovered a treasure trove of particulars. Google gave everybody a very good take a look at the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Professional again in August, whereas confirming among the key options coming to the gadgets. However since then, it’s been just about radio silence aside from the occasional TV advert spot.
It is iPhone day, in order that clearly means it is time for Pixel 6 information. Some particulars I’ve realized/can corroborate as soon as once more:
-Extra proof of the “shannon” modem (Exynos modem 5123)
-Battery share is supported
-Fast Faucet, however no Energetic Edge in Gestures pic.twitter.com/9jSK8hPZxv

A supply talking to Rahman appears to truly have the Pixel 6 Professional in-hand, which has revealed fairly a bit in regards to the upcoming system. Right here’s a quick-list breakdown of what’s to return for the Pixel 6 Professional:
- 5,000mAh battery capability.
- 120Hz refresh charge
- 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM
- 128GB storage
- Mali-G78 GPU
- Samsung “g5123b” 5G modem
- Octa-core CPU
- WiFi 6E help
- Triple-rear camera array:
- 50MP Samsung GN1
- 12MP Sony IMX386
- 48MP Sony IMX586
- Fingerprint scanner
- Extremely-wideband (UWB) help
And that’s simply on the specs aspect of the Pixel 6 Professional. However this all matches up both earlier leaks, together with what we have been already anticipating (or hoping for) even earlier than Google took off the wraps itself.
However Rahman and his supply didn’t cease there, as we now have an concept of among the different options that will probably be arriving when the Pixel 6 Professional lands. Whereas it seems that “Energetic Edge” received’t be accessible, it is possible for you to to make use of Battery Share. So this imply’s that the Pixel 6 Professional will help reverse wi-fi charging, which must be fairly nice on condition that it features a 5,000mAh battery.
With ultra-sideband (UWB) help, that is one thing that we anticipated to see anyhow, on condition that Apple, Samsung and others have already built-in this into current smartphone releases. With UWB, you’ll be able to use one thing just like a Tile Tracker or Galaxy Tag to maintain observe of your objects. However in keeping with Rahman, that is possible simply step one in Google’s rumored plans to permit customers to unlock their vehicles together with your Pixel.
One thing else found by Rahman by way of his supply is the Linux kernel that the Pixel 6 Professional’s firmware relies on. Based on Rahman, the kernel model is 5.10, which will probably be supported till the tip of 2026. If that is in reality the kernel used on the retail model of the Pixel 6 Professional, it may imply that Google will lastly start supporting its personal gadgets for 5 years. We’ve seen different telephone makers make adjustments like this as everybody else continues to play catch as much as Apple and iOS. However Google would surge previous the likes of Samsung, who lately modified its coverage to help choose gadgets for as much as 4 years.
