To say 2020 has been a strange year is a massive understatement and one of the strange things was Google releasing three mid to premium range Pixel smartphones but no ultra-premium. In doing so they kicked a lot of their recent technological advances to the curb which surprised a lot of us.
If the unsubstantiated rumour from overnight is to be believed Google are instead looking to release their ultra-premium Pixel that we expected in October this year in March of next year.
This is the biggest rumor I've heard in ages, and I mean this is an unsubstantiated rumor I've heard from like 2 people so absolutely don't believe it, but apparently there's a true flagship Pixel coming out in like March 2021.
Again, unsubstantiated rumor.

As Max, a well known leaker, states, the rumour is definitely unsubstantiated but he does say that he has heard it from two different people — you could call that corroboration. There is very little else to go on for this and the time of the release does not make sense — unless they release a Pixel 5a at the same time.
So what would a Pixel 6 ultra-premium flagship entail — we would expect a Snapdragon 875 chipset for support of a 2k display (765 doesn’t support that), the return of Motion Sense and hopefully Edge Sense. So many of us also hope that Google decide to finally just give in an stick a triple rear camera on the phone — who doesn’t want telephoto AND ultra-wide angled.
We recommend that you take this rumour with not the usual grain of salt but a massive helping of salt. The timing does not make sense although an ultra-premium one does. You can be sure that if this is true we will be hearing a lot more before the end of the year.
Fingers crossed for an ultra-premium Pixel? Or are you happy with the mid-range offerings of this year?
