The launch of the Google Pixel 6 series is now closer than ever before, and we’ve got a lot of reasons to be excited. Yesterday, the phone’s charging speeds were leaked, thanks to NCC.

The phones have been spotted yet again, but this time on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) website. And the old leaks, for the most part, have come true. Here’s what we got to know from the listing.

Pixel 6 Series: Wi-Fi 6E & Ultra-Wide Band Support

In May, XDA Editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman tweeted about the presence of UWB API on the phone, and according to the FCC listing, the UWB is present on the Pixel 6 series. The phone will also have Wi-Fi 6E support (Seven additional 160MHz channels compared to only two 160MHz channels on WiFi 6).

For those who don’t know, UWB chip can help locate other UWB-equipped gadgets through spatial awareness, using very high frequencies of Radio Waves.

Among the different models listed on FCC, some of them also support mmWave. Here’s a list of all of them.

Live Translate On The Pixel 6

So far, we’ve seen Google marketing the Pixel 6 series based on its AI/ML capabilities, thanks to the Tensor SoC. XDA found out via the source that the phones were running an unreleased Android System Intelligence app build.

Google has introduced live captions and intelligent notifications for Android 11. The app that brings these features to the same is the Android System Intelligence App. Google is adding the live translate feature into the app, which we’ll get to see in action in the Pixel 6 series.

For more insights on the same, folks over at XDA-Developers have got you covered.
