There’s a few phones that elicit excited anticipation in tech nerds, and Google’s Pixel phones are just one. As usual leaks of the Pixel 6 began emerging a while back, and cases matching those leaks are now available to buy.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, began leaking in late May, when Steve Hemmerstoffer aka @OnLeaks shared the renders of both phones through digit.in (Pixel 6 Pro) and 91Mobiles (Pixel 6). The new design includes a horizontally mounted camera array, though the Pixel 6 appears to have one less camera sensor.
The new, rather radically different design will of course mean new case designs, and the sellers of Chinese marketplace AliExpress is showing an abundance of designs based on the renders. Cases range from basic clear TPU cases, to more elaborate stand and wallet style cases – all priced quite cheaply.
According to the previous leaks, the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 6.67″ display with a slight curve to it, and measure 163.9 x 75.8 x 8.9mm. The Pixel 6 on the other hand will include a 6.4″ display, though it will be flat according to the leak, and measure in at 158.6mm x 74.8mm x 8.9mm.
If you’re more interested in the budget end of the range, there’s also cases appearing for the Pixel 5a showing up too. The phone has already leaked, with Google confirming the phone would only be available in Japan and the US.
The renders from the Pixel 6 cases appear to simply use the renders created by Hemmerstoffer, so take these with a grain of salt. That said, I’ve made a habit of buying these cases as they appear on these sites, ahead of the official announcement, and they’ve been pretty spot on – so yes, I’ve ordered some. Now to wait for the official announcement so I can compare.
