It was just a week ago that we reported on Jon Prosser’s leaks of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, showing off a seriously different design direction for Google‘s phone line. Now another tipster with a few more major reveals under his belt, OnLeaks, has partnered with digit.in to provide another rendered look at the devices.

OnLeaks and Digit.in also have a few more specifics to share, noting that the more powerful Pixel 6 Pro may come with a 6.67-inch curved display and will measure roughly 163.9 x 75.8  x 8.9 mm, although the camera brings that to 11.5 mm of thickness.

They also reiterate that the devices will have an in-display fingerprint reader and that the Pro model will feature a Pixel-first triple-camera system, including a periscope camera for those far-away subjects.

The leak coincides with Google’s announcement of its first Google Store, indicating the company is seriously planning to double down on its mindshare in the hardware space. The major design shift also makes sense considering Google’s all-new ‘Material You’ aesthetic for Android.

With rumors that the company plans to launch its first custom processor — allegedly dubbed GS101 — with the new phones, Pixel fans may be looking at the most exciting launch in years.
