google pixel 6 vs  6pro

As we strategy the discharge date of the Google Pixel 6 Pro, it appeared like we knew every little thing there was to know concerning the upcoming Google telephones. We have seen renders, spec sheets, even teardowns, camera samples, and pricing for some markets. What we’re studying now’s that Google could go the way in which of Apple and make it harder to get the Pixel 6 Professional mounted, notably the digital camera module.

If a leaked web page from the Google Pixel 6 Professional’s technical restore guide is to be believed, Google seems to be pairing a triple digital camera module to a novel gadget from the manufacturing facility. The doc states “RL rear digital camera is calibrated at vendor web site to safe the picture/video high quality submit restore.” This web page was printed to Restore.Wiki
 and the Wiki web page mentions {that a} substitute module “is totally different from the manufacturing digital camera module that’s paired to the unique logic board.”

Which means that one could not be capable of use the digital camera module from an present Pixel 6 Professional and set up it onto one other gadget. It additionally suggests {that a} substitute module may should be laborious coded to work on one other Pixel gadget. The identical doc says “If altering the logic board: ASP additionally wants to alter the RL Rear digital camera has the ‘GEO’ mark. For the changed Rear Digicam from the unique gadget, maintain them, and RTV (Return To Vendor).”

In a YouTube video, Louis Rossmann explains that since Apple has made camera module repairs with the iPhone 12 harder to carry out outdoors of Apple’s approved restore community, different distributors might even see this as a possibility to do the identical. There is not any accusation that Google will make third celebration or DIY repairs harder, however the clues are main in that course. Nonetheless, this must be confirmed by really taking aside two Pixel 6 Professional units and swapping the digital camera modules to see whether or not they work or not.

Rossmann wonders what the profit is to pair a digital camera module to the logic board. The leaked doc claims it’s “to safe the picture/video high quality submit restore.” however this assertion is met with skepticism.
