Google Announces Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro

Google just recently announced their new upcoming flagship smartphones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are Google’s attempts at breaking into the high-end smartphone market and creating a competitive flagship phone to go against offerings from companies such as Apple and Samsung. However, the main focus of the announcement seemed to be on the new Tensor System on a Chip (SoC) that is designed by Google specifically for Pixel.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro both feature a new premium design that is constructed from glass and aluminum. The back of the phone features a unique raised camera bar, while the front is essentially bezel-free and has a single hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. Both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available in three different color combinations.

The Pixel 6 Pro supposedly will have a 6.7-inch Quad HD+ display and a 120hz refresh rate, while the regular Pixel 6 will pack a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display and only a 90hz refresh rate. Google also released that the Pixel 6 Pro will have a triple camera setup, including a telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom. The regular Pixel 6 will feature the same camera setup as the Pro minus the telephoto lens.

Of course, powering the new devices is Google’s newly designed Tensor chip that is specifically designed for processing Google’s artificial intelligence and machine learning models. The Tensor chip will apparently bring a transformed experience for the camera, speech recognition, and many other features for the Pixel 6. The Tensor chip is also paired with the Titan M2 security chip for what Google claims is “the most layers of hardware security in any phone.”

Google has chosen not to share too many details this time around. However, the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are slated to release this fall, and more information regarding features, specifications, and pricing will be available then.
