Google Pixel 6 may last until Android 16 is released

Google Pixel 6

If you purchase a Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, you may be able to use the most recent Android features until the end of 2026.

Rumor has it that Google’s upcoming Pixel phones, which will be unveiled on October 19 at its autumn hardware reveal, will receive four years of Android updates out of the box.

Users will be able to update to Android 16 after four years of receiving Android 12 updates.

Because of this, the phones won’t be outdated until Android 17 launches in 2026, which is expected to happen in the fall of that year.

According to Twitter leaker @ snoopytech, the Pixel 6 will receive four years of OS upgrades and an additional year of security fixes after its launch. The informant claims that the information has been validated by a number of different sources.

Previously, it was reported that there would be five years of support, but if today’s leak is correct, we may be able to reduce that number slightly.

With a big increase over the Pixel 5a’s three years of Android upgrades for all customers, Google could once again set the bar high for other Android phone makers to meet. Samsung and Xiaomi, for example, have promised three years of OS updates.

Additionally, the Google Tensor processor, which is the in-house technology that will power the Pixel 6 series, may be able to provide the extra capability. The fact that we don’t know much about it right now is probably the most compelling reason to attend the Google event on October 19.

We’re looking forward to Google’s Pixel presentation next week, which could include the long-rumored Pixel Watch running WearOS 3. It’s also feasible that Google will make improvements to its Pixel Buds earbuds. Please join us on October 19th for live coverage of the event.
