After months of leaks this afternoon Google has finally announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and there is a rumor that in recent days began to sound very strongly that finally has not been fully fulfilled.
The rumor said that Google was going to offer five years of security updates and four years of Android updates on its new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro but only the first part was true. ** Google has confirmed the deadlines for the updates of the new Pixel 6 ** denying that rumor.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro update deadlines
Wearing the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro its own Google Tensor chip, which will be launched in Spain in 2022, we had the hope that Google will extend the terms of the updates to more years to try to match the five or six years that Apple offers in its devices, but it has not been as we expected .
Google has confirmed that the new Pixel 6 have security updates insured at least until October 2026, that is, five years of security updates, but for updates to new versions of Android we see that they are guaranteed at least until October 2024, that is, three years of Android updates as we can see on the Google support page.
In this way, the Pixel 6 will continue to have three years of Android updates like the rest of the Pixel and other manufacturers on their Android devices. In security updates, with the Pixel 6, Google manages to match the five years of security updates that Samsung promised a few months ago for its devices.
