TL;DR
  • Four mysterious Google phones just passed through the FCC, likely the Google Pixel 6 series.
  • Each model should have a mmWave version and a version with just Sub6 5G.
  • FCC certifications such as these usually signal an imminent launch.

Google has told us a lot about its upcoming pair of flagship phones. However, one thing it hasn’t divulged is when we’ll actually see them launch. Thankfully, we now know we are quite close to that date, whenever it might be.

Today, four Googlebranded smartphones passed through the FCC. Although there’s no confirmation as such, it is almost certain these are the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Traditionally, the FCC is one of the last steps in the release of a smartphone. Although these certification listings don’t tell us much, they prove that we should see Google launch the devices very soon.

The two phones have the following model numbers:

  • GLU0G and G8V0U (likely Pixel 6 Pro)
  • GB7N6 and G9S9B (likely Pixel 6)

It’s not easy to tell which model number matches up to which phone. The reason each variant has two models, though, is due to one having Sub6 5G support only and the other supporting mmWave as well.

We also noticed that the phones have wireless charging and reverse wireless charging capabilities. The filing refers to 5W speeds for the latter, which would largely be in line with other phones touting this ability. The filing also lists UWB and Wi-Fi 6E support.

We’ll need to wait and see if these theories match up, but you can go ahead and start getting pumped for the Pixel 6 release, as they are almost certainly right around the corner.
