It is strange not to see Google Pixel leaks and rumors now and then. Yes, you read it right.
Google is infamous for its incompetence to stop Pixel phone-related leaks since the company announced the Pixel lineup. Every single time, the tech giant manages to leak almost all specifications of the phone.
This year too, several key specifications of the phone are already known at this point. A few days ago, the internet was surprised by a photo of the Pixel 6 Pro, but it turns out Google was spoiling the name of the Pixel 6 XL.
Some speculations have earlier suggested that the company will be making some changes to the naming scheme this year. The same leak also points out a new and refreshed design, something we haven’t seen on other devices.
What is it? Pixel 6 XL or Pixel Pro?
So the question now is, what will be the name of the upcoming Pixel device? Google recently held a Google for Games Developer Summit, during which they revealed some new tools for game developers.
One of the new features is the “game dashboard.” It is basically an overlay that lets the gamer change profiles using the new Game Mode API. Google has also introduced “Game Mode interventions,” which can be optimized by OEM according to their specifications.
If you are a game developer, you might need to reach out to the OEM (including Google). For that very purpose, the company recently opened a form that helps developers request Google for Game Mode intervention values for the Pixel devices.
In one of the questions asking developers what devices should the WindowManager backbuffer resize intervention setting make use of, Google has listed the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 XL as an answer.
It might turn out to be a typo, or someone at Google is really didn’t think much of it when typing the question.
Whatever the case might be, Google was quick to remove the question. While this does not solidify what the device name might be, it is hilarious to see Google making such silly mistakes and revealing upcoming device information.
