The teardowns have been carried out by PBK Critiques and whereas the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Professional internals are nearly the identical, there are a couple of key variations that the movies spotlight. The 2 telephones are bundled with a variety of warmth dissipation and the teardown showcases the mmWave format as properly. The movies focus primarily on the repairability of the 2 telephones, and each the display screen and fingerprint sensor labored high-quality after substitute.
