New leak reveals 5 years of software updates for the Google Pixel 6

Another massive leak on the Google Pixel 6 reveals a new software policy for the phones and more features. 

Based on the cached webpages of the Pixel 6 phones on Carphone Warehouse, the Pixel 6 phones are stated to come with at least 5 years of updates. It remains to be seen if this includes Android OS updates and/or security updates.

  • Google Tensor delivers up to 80% faster performance.
