we're getting close to the Pixel 6 launch as we are less than a couple of weeks away from the launch event. Rumors suggested that Google would keep a launch event on October 19th and Google confirmed that it was indeed true.

 Google will officially unveil the phone on October 19th at 10 am pacific time. With that said, Evan Blass has revealed a plethora of new official images of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro giving us another real-life look and also showing us some software features of the handset. 

First, let's take a look at these beautiful pictures of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro.


 For the first time ever in Google's smartphone history, this actually looks like a real Google phone. The photos show the phone splashed with water, suggesting it will happen an IP rating for dust and water resistance which isn't surprising.


 It also shows the phone with the charger which is going to be 33W. But this is not going to be included with the phone. We also have our first look at the Pixel stand which will offer 23W of wireless charging support to the Pixel 6 handset. The Stand looks bulkier compared to the older model, possibly because it includes a built-in fan for cooling, and these images suggest that you will able be able to switch the wireless charger between Performance mode and Quiet mode depending on whether you prioritize a faster charge or silence.


 Now, let's move to the software features. First up, the live space is a major at a glance update for the Android 12. What this does is, Suppose you have an upcoming flight, the Pixel 6 will note it in the top-left corner complete with departure time. 

What's new is it will show a button at the right that notes your gate and seat number, as well as the boarding QR code pass. Tapping will presumably open a bigger version for quick scanning. Some third-party apps will be integrated into this as well, as one screenshot shows a Running activity from an Adidas app that notes elapsed time and distance ran. 

Next, the Pixel 6 will have an under-display fingerprint scanner and the screenshot confirms that but it also confirms that the phone will have a face unlocking system. Now, this is not going to be as secure as the FaceID on iPhones or Google's own Pixel 4, Google is actually using an RGB camera for this to work which is a little more secure than what other Android OEMs are doing.


 Anyway, we have some updated information about the pricing of the handset. A few days ago 

we got the European prices which revealed the Pixel 6 will cost 649 Euros($750).while the Pixel 6 Pro will be 899 Euros($1040). 

Today, a German retailer has listed the Pixel 6 and the price matches with the earlier leaked one which is 649 euros($750).

 But it also shows that Google could bundle a pair of Bose 700 Headphones as a pre-order bonus with the Pixel 6 for free. Note that pre-order bonuses differ for different markets so, for the folks over in the US, Canada may not get the same pre-order deal.
