Following the announcement by the company, Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have leaked almost everywhere in the last few weeks. What has been missing so far is a live hands-on video, perhaps of a prototype, but that day has finally come.
The video shows the Pixel 6 Pro in all its glory, but how do we know it’s a prototype? The strange logo on the back, which replaces the classic Google “G”, is always used on test devices. In this way, Google tries to hide that the device in question is a Google smartphone. However, the camera design is now unmistakable.
I think this may be the first hands on video leak of a Google Pixel 6 Pro.
FYI: The logo would indicate that this is likely an early production test unit, so that means there may be some differences between what you see here and the actual production device. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/4QSvdktqA7

The video, lasting eight seconds, is a simple 360 degree tour of the device and shows nothing else, in fact the device appears to be turned off or it is just a unit that is not working. What is certain is that by now the design of the next Pixel 6 it’s already been confirmed by Google, so that’s nothing new. Clearly seeing it “live” has a completely different effect.
