Recently Google has handled its Pixel Autumn event where the company announced two new smartphones Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro and a new Tensor processor. Perhaps you could have seen some of the Pixel 6 leaks through the internet, but now a full list of specs is available. 

After releasing quite a lame Pixel 5 model, Google wants to show its rivals that the company is ready to continue the competing game in full charge.

Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

To start with, both Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro has a renewed design. It looks more futuristic and premium in comparison with previous models. The body is made from recycled aluminium with a large camera bar right at the back.

The price tag begins from £599 in the UK and $599 in the US for the cheapest Pixel 6 version and £849 / $899 for the Pixel 6 Pro. By the way, the cheapest model costs at least £170 less than the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy S21.

Google put under the hood of both models a new self-made Tensor processor and a 50MP sensor. That’s all for similar features.

The Pixel 6 has a flat 6.4in 90Hz OLED screen and 12MP ultra-wide cameras on the back and 8MP selfie camera, which Google says are greatly improved over its previous units.

Pixel 6 Pro has a larger, curved 6.7in 120Hz OLED screen and 12MP ultrawide cameras, plus a 48MP telephoto camera with a 4x optical zoom and an 11.1MP ultrawide selfie camera. Besides, in this model Google uses LTPO technology that allows you to change the refresh rate from as low a 10Hz all the way up to 120Hz.

Google powered its new phone with Tensor Processor

Google emphasised a lot of attention to its own designed Tensor processor that sits comfortably under the aluminum frame in both new phones. The company demonstrates the Tensor’s performance citing the example of photos with less blurry images or how it helps with voice recognition, and real-time captions and translation. Outside of ML, Google says that it should be competitive with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processors when it comes to overall CPU and GPU performance.

Google also emphasized how the Tensor could help its phones be more personalized to you but didn’t go into much detail on how exactly that would work. The Verge had its hands on the new models, so you can read the full review right here.
