In response to a tweet pointing out that each color version of the Pixel 6 corresponded with a color option for the Google Stadia Controller, the official Made By Google twitter account (used for the company’s hardware) replied “The family resemblance is uncanny.”
Is the reason the Google Pixel 6 was launched but not released, because the brand ran out of paint? Probably not, but it seems that Google is re-using colors from its other products anyway.

The iPhone 13 is expected soon
While companies opting to use consistent colors for various products is nothing new, it’s not something we’ve seen Google do much of before. The Pixel 5 came in black and a murky green color, while the 4a and 4a 5G both only came in black, and while previous products from the company have sometimes come in more interesting shades, we rarely see consistency between product families.
That’s an odd thing for Google to post, especially because everyone is desperately waiting for new information on the Pixel 6 phones. When the devices were unveiled, the company provided little actual information about the phone and its Pro sibling, and we’ve been stretching deep to try and fill in the blanks. Recently, Android 12 provided some information on the camera specs.
