Google is gearing up to launch the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The new smartphone series is very different from the previous one, and Google basically wanted to build up the hype by announcing it a few months early.
There are several reasons that make the Pixel 6 is so different from its predecessors, ranging from very premium designs to chipsets designed by Google itself. The internet search company will keep the full specifications until the official launch, but one thing for sure is that Pixel 6 is indeed is the future flagship phone.
Looking closer at the design, the new Google Pixel 6 looks just like the Nexus 6P. It has a camera bulge that extends from the left to the right. The Pixel 6 uses an aluminum body frame, with a matte finish.
Moving forward, Pixel 6 will be packing a 6.4-inch screen with FHD + resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. The phones also pack a fingerprint sensor behind the screen.
The specifications of the camera are still a mystery, but what is certain is that the main camera is most certainly capable of absorbing 150 percent more light. On the Pixel 6, the main camera is accompanied by an ultra-wide sensor.
Brand New Chipset
The Pixel 6 – and Pixel 6 Pro – will be the first smartphones to use Google’s own chipset. Google is calling it the Tensor SoC, and its main focus is on boosting the performance of both artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on their smartphones.
According to Google, the focus on AI and ML is important because they are playing more and more roles in smartphone features. The biggest role, of course, is in terms of computational photography.
Other features that rely heavily on AI and ML, such as the speech recognition feature, will also be more responsive and accurate thanks to Tensor.
Price and Availability
Pixel 6 comes with three different color hues – black, grey, and red – and is coming to the market as soon as Fall 2021 which is around October 2021.
