Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby and use of other features. Average battery life during testing was approximately 29 hours. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Battery testing conducted in California in early 2022 on pre-production hardware and software, using default settings. Battery testing conducted using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. Actual battery life may be lower.
2
Requires Google Photos app. Magic Eraser may not work on all image elements.

Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro: Measured diagonally; dimension may vary by configuration and manufacturing process. Smooth Display is not available for all apps or content. Smooth Display automatically adjusts to optimise for best viewing and battery performance. Pixel 6a: Measured diagonally; dimension may vary by configuration and manufacturing process.
4
Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6: Estimated battery life based on testing using a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of other features. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Average battery life during testing was approximately 34 hours. Battery testing conducted by a third party in California in mid 2021 on pre-production hardware and software, using default settings. Battery testing conducted using two major carrier networks using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. Actual battery life may be lower. Pixel 6a: For “24-hour”: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of other features. Average battery life during testing was approximately 29 hours. Battery testing conducted using Sub-6 GHz non-standalone 5G (ENDC) connectivity. For “Up to 72 hours”: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of limited other features that are default in Extreme Battery Saver mode (which disables various features including 5G connectivity). Battery testing conducted on a major carrier network. For both claims: Battery testing conducted in California in early 2022 on pre-production hardware and software using default settings, except that, for the “up to 72 hour” claim only, Extreme Battery Saver mode was enabled. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower.

Wired charging rates up to 18 W based on use of Google 30 W USB-C® or Google 18 W USB-C® Charger plugged into a wall socket. Actual results may be slower. Adaptors sold separately. Compatible with USB PD 3.0 PPS adaptors.
7
Storage specifications refer to capacity before formatting. Actual formatted capacity will be less.
8
Android security updates for at least five years from when the device first became available on the Google Store in the US. Updates may also include feature drops and other software updates. See g.co/pixel/updates for details.
9
Not available for all camera apps or modes.
10
Maximum resolution and field of view with RAW image files setting turned on. Setting is turned off by default. See g.co/pixel/photoediting for more information.
11
Magic Eraser may not work on all image elements.
12
Feature is operator dependent. Not supported by all operators or in all countries. Contact mobile operator for details.
13
Pixel 6a works on major operator networks. Contact operator for details. 5G service is operator dependent. See g.co/pixel/networkinfo.
14
Requires a 5G data plan (sold separately). 5G service not available on all operator networks or in all areas and may vary by country. Contact operator for details. Phone connects to 5G networks but, 5G service, speed and performance depend on many factors including, but not limited to, operator network capabilities, device configuration and capabilities, network traffic, location, signal strength and signal obstruction. Actual results may vary. Some features not available in all areas. Data rates may apply.See g.co/pixel/networkinfo for info.
15
Pixel security updates for at least five years from when the device first became available on the Google Store in the US. Updates may also include feature drops and other software updates. See g.co/pixel/updates for more information.
16
Designed to comply with water protection rating IPX7 under IEC standard 60529 when each device leaves the factory, but the device is not waterproof. The accessories are not water or dust resistant. Water resistance is not a permanent condition, and diminishes or is lost over time due to normal wear and tear, device repair, disassembly or damage. Dropping your device may result in loss of water/dust resistance. Liquid damage voids the warranty. See g.co/pixel/water.
17
Wireless charging rates up to 21W (Pixel 6) and up to 23W (Pixel 6 Pro) charging with Qi-certified Google PIxel Stand (2nd gen) (sold separately). Actual results may be slower. Fast wired charging rates are based upon use of the Google 30W USB-C® Charger plugged into a wall socket. Compatible with USB PD 3.0 PPS adaptors. Actual results may be slower. Adaptors sold separately.
