TL;DR

  • Yet another set of Google Pixel 6 series renders have leaked.
  • More noticeably, side-on shots showcase just how large the phones’ camera bump is.
  • Google will launch both devices on October 19.
Thanks to the plethora of leaked images and Google’s teaser shots, you’re probably used to the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro’s design. However, a new set of renders highlights one particular feature of the flagship duo — the rear camera hump.

Up until now, we haven’t seen too many side-on shots of the phones, but the latest render drop from tipster Evan Blass changes this. The new images demonstrate just how substantial the Pixel 6 series’ camera bar really is. The standard Pixel 6 is arguably more guilty of this. Side-on shots showcase a camera hump that’s nearly as thick as the phone itself. It’s a little less noticeable on the Pixel 6 Pro, though, even in the Cloudy White colorway. You can compare the two phones’ side profiles below.

It’s worth noting that while the bump is unsightly, its full horizontal width design does have its benefits. For one, it’s likely the Pixel 6 series won’t suffer from wobbles when placed on a flat surface like other phones. Alternatively, this design could also make it difficult to slip in and out of a tight pocket.

Notably, the Pixel 6 series’ camera design probably won’t be of concern if the hardware is up to scratch. Several leaks suggest we can expect a 50MP primary shooter to feature on the Pixel 6 Pro alongside a 48MP telephoto and 12MP ultra-wide shooter.
Whether you like the designs or not, the Pixel 6 series is nearly out in the wild. Google will officially launch the duo on October 19.
