As we approach the launch date of the Google Pixel 6 Pro, it seemed like we knew all the things there was to know about the future Google phones. We have found renders, spec sheets, even teardowns, camera samples, and pricing for some marketplaces. What we are studying now is that Google may well go the way of Apple and make it a lot more challenging to get the Pixel 6 Pro set, specifically the camera module.

If a leaked webpage from the Google Pixel 6 Pro’s specialized restore guide is to be believed, Google seems to be pairing a triple camera module to a special machine from the manufacturing unit. The document states “RL rear camera is calibrated at vendor web-site to safe the picture/online video excellent put up restore.” This webpage was published to Fix.Wiki
 and the Wiki webpage mentions that a substitution module “is unique from the generation camera module that is paired to the authentic logic board.”

This usually means that just one may well not be capable to use the camera module from an current Pixel 6 Pro and set up it onto a different machine. It also implies that a substitution module could want to be really hard coded to function on a different Pixel machine. The identical document claims “If switching the logic board: ASP also demands to transform the RL Rear camera has the ‘GEO’ mark. For the changed Rear Camera from the authentic machine, retain them, and RTV (Return To Vendor).”

In a YouTube online video, Louis Rossmann explains that since Apple has created camera module repairs with the iPhone 12 more challenging to complete exterior of Apple’s authorized restore community, other distributors may well see this as an prospect to do the identical. There’s no accusation that Google will make third social gathering or Do-it-yourself repairs a lot more challenging, but the clues are top in that way. Nonetheless, this would have to be verified by basically taking apart two Pixel 6 Pro products and swapping the camera modules to see no matter whether they function or not.

Rossmann wonders what the gain is to pair a camera module to the logic board. The leaked document claims it is “to safe the picture/online video excellent put up restore.” but this statement is achieved with skepticism.
