Google has confirmed that the Google Pixel 6 and Google 6 Pro smartphones will be available in the USA from 28 October 28 priced at $599 and $899, respectively. 

The Google Pixel 6 and Google 6 Pro both feature a new design that has a distinctive matt black metal camera band that sits boldly against the smartphone's body which is made with a polished metal unibody and transitions into curved glass.

Along with a new look, the cameras on the Google Pixel 6/6 Pro smartphones have had an upgrade with both featuring a new 1/1.3 inch sensor on the back. This primary sensor now captures up to 150% more light (compared to the Google Pixel 5's primary camera). Both phones also have completely new ultrawide lenses with larger sensors.
