The Google Pixel 6 Pro camera module may not be replaced by the user

Google Pixel 6 and 6pro

As we approach the release date Google Pixel 6 Pro, It seems that we know all about the upcoming Google phones.We have seen Rendering, Specification Table, even Disassemble, Camera samples, with Price For some markets. What we know now is that Google may go the way of Apple, making it more difficult to repair Pixel 6 Pro, especially the camera module.

If you can believe the leaked pages in the Google Pixel 6 Pro technical repair manual, then Google seems to be pairing the triple camera module with a unique device from the factory.The document states that “the RL rear camera is calibrated at the supplier’s site to ensure the image/video quality after repair.” This page has been posted to Maintenance Wiki

And the Wiki page mentions that the replacement module is “different from the production camera module paired with the original logic board.”

This means that people may not be able to use the existing Pixel 6 Pro camera module and install it on another device. It also indicates that the replacement module may need to be hard-coded to work on another Pixel device. The same document says “If the logic board is replaced: ASP also needs to replace the RL rear camera with the’GEO’ mark. For the rear camera replaced from the original device, keep them, and RTV (return to supplier).”

In the YouTube video, Louis Rossmann explained that because Apple has made it more difficult to repair the iPhone 12’s camera module outside of Apple’s authorized repair network, other vendors may see this as an opportunity to do so. No one accuses Google of making third-party or DIY repairs more difficult, but the clues are moving in this direction. Nevertheless, this must be confirmed by physically disassembling the two Pixel 6 Pro devices and exchanging the camera modules to confirm that they are working.

Rossmann wanted to know the benefits of pairing the camera module with the logic board. The leaked file claimed that this was “to ensure the quality of the image/video after repair”. But this statement has been questioned.
