As we head into October, Google continues to promote its upcoming Pixel 6 phone weeks before its expected official launch date. This week, The company launched a Google Pixel 6 Japanese TV ad that tries to make the case that this smartphone will stand out from the crowd of handsets.
The ad shows an on-screen widget for controlling music. It includes backward and forward icons on the sides, a pause button on the bottom, and what looks like some kind of play button in the center. We also see a volume control widget and one that shows the artist’s name and title, along with its own control icons. It’s unknown if the Pixel 6 will launch with this kind of UI.
The ad also shows other widgets, such as a clock, one for showing the current weather, one for photos, and a message notification icon. Of course, there’s also a look at the phone’s new Tensor processor, and its rear camera bump.
Google has already been promoting the Pixel 6 well ahead of its official reveal. In the US, you can actually see, but not touch, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro at Google’s New York City store. In Japan, Google gave away thousands of snack chip bags as part of a Pixel 6 promotion. It’s likely that we will get even more ads for the handset before its launch. It’s rumored that Google could finally take pre-orders for the Pixel 6 on October 19.
