While all the details will be known this fall, Google has released the first information about the new Pixels smartphone.
By announcing that their phones will be powered by their Tensor chips in the future, Google also announced the first details about the phones in which the Tensor chip will debut. That’s how we found out what the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will look like.
Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Specs
The most notable novelty will be the new camera system along with the bulge for them, inspired by many by the Nexus 6P. The Pixel 6 Pro will have 3 cameras, one of which will be with a quadruple optical zoom, and the Pixel 6 will have the same setting as the Pro, but without a camera that can optically zoom. Given that the cameras on the Pixels were often superior or at least in the range of the most expensive phones from both camps, but with weaker hardware, it will be interesting to see what kind of photos the Pixel 6 will take, especially the Pixel 6 Pro.
The front camera will be cut in the middle of the screen, which will be 6.7 inches on the 6 Pro, QHD + resolution with a refresh rate of 120Hz. The Pixel 6 will have a 6.4-inch screen, FHD + resolution, and a 90Hz refresh rate.
The frame of the Pixel 6 Pro will be made of glossy, and on the “ordinary” six made of brushed aluminum. The Pixel 6, of course, will arrive with Android 12, which also brings Material You, Google’s new design language. Both Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will come in three color combos, there will be a champagne gold model and a white one.
The main theme of the first announcement, however, is Tensor, Google’s chip that will be built into Pixel 6. The Tensor chip will abound in machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities on the device. Google stands out as key to the experience that the new Pixels will bring. There are no other details about the chip, such as the core, memory, or manufacturer, for now, although Google points out that the Tensor will have an improved level of security in addition to ML / AI capabilities.
Google Pixel 6 Release Date
The exact release date is unknown right now, Google confirmed it will launch in ‘fall 2021’ in the US, the rumor so far says to expect it in October, I guess we have to wait until the fall and learn more about the new Pixels smartphone.
Google Pixel 6 Pro Price
For reference, the Pixel 5 cost $699. Most likely that the Pixel 6 could start at $899. As for the Pixel 6 Pro, it will be at least $100 more than the Pixel 6.
