Google Pixel 6 Leak Previews Magic Eraser Feature, Plus Five Years of Android Security Updates
New leaks from a marketing site purport to reveal that the camera on the Pixel 6 will include a new Magic Eraser feature, and the devices will supposedly get five years of Android security upgrades (h/t 9to5 Google).
The Carphone Warehouse website was exhibiting photographs of Google marketing materials for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, according to reliable leaker Evan Blass (the images have since been taken down, but you can view the earlier versions of the Carphone Warehouse pages on the Wayback Machine here and here). The description for the previously disclosed Magic Eraser, which will reportedly be tied to Google Photos, is shown in screenshots:
Magic Eraser makes distractions disappear with a few taps. Remove strangers and unwanted objects in Google Photos, so the people and places that you capture remain the true stars.
The Pixel 6 camera will have a 50MP main sensor and a 12MP ultrawide lens, while the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 48MP telephoto lens, according to the latest pictures.
According to Engadget, some of the wording on the leaked images (in the tiny, tiny fine print) refers to “Android security upgrades for at least five years from when the device initially became available on the Google Store in the United States.” As a result, the Pixel 6 would be safe until 2026.
