After intensive leaks and rumors, the search giant has finally unveiled The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Both these smartphones are true flagships in terms of specification and come with competitive pricing that might change the fate of Pixels smartphones.
Before the official announcement, Google itself teased the smartphones a few months back and confirmed that all the rumors and leaks were true.
The most highlighting feature of these devices is the use of Google’s in-house tensor chip and unique rear design.
Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Specifications:
This time Google uses a simple design for the front of its devices. There is a flat 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and a higher 90 Hz refresh rate. While there is a slightly bigger 6.7-inch QHD+ curved AMOLED Display that has an adaptive higher refresh rate of 120 Hz. The Pro model has a top-of-the-line display similar to those of the One Plus 9 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S21+.
As mentioned this time there is no Qualcomm chipset that Google uses previously in all of its smartphones. This time there is an in-house custom tensor chipset that google develops for its pixel 6 smartphones.
It is an octa-core chipset that has 2 cortex-X1 cores that are clocked at 2.8 GHz, 2 cortex A76 cores that are clocked at 2.25GHz, and 4 Cortex-A55 cores that are clocked at 1.8 GHz.
Google claims that this chip offers 80% better performance as compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G silicon which is found in Pixel 5. Google also adds a Titan M2 security chip for better security of personal data.
The vanilla model comes with 8GB of RAM and either 126 GB or 256 GB of internal storage with no SD card support. The Pro model comes with 12 GB of RAM and 128/256/512 GB of internal storage option with no support for an SD card.
The display also has an in-display fingerprint scanner for improved security. Some other specification includes the all-new Android 12, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6E and 5G connectivity.
Cameras are the USP of every pixel device launched to date and this phone is no different. This year’s Google Pixel 6 has a 50 MP f/1.85 Samsung GN1 sensor as the main camera. There is an additional 12 MP f/2.2 Sony IMX 386 ultra-wide lens. While the Pro model has an additional camera with these two cameras. It has a 48 MP f/3.5 aperture Sony IMX 586 telephoto lens as a third camera. The telephoto lens in the Pro model is also capable of 4x optical zoom and 20x super res digital zoom.
For selfies, both models have an 8 MP f/2.2 sensor housed in a single punch hole cut-out at the center of the display. This time there are no multiple sensors on the front which we have seen on The Pixel 4, launched in 2019.
Google made the pricing so competitive that this time these devices seem to have a better option of competing with the other flagships.
Google Pixel 6 starts at $599 for the 128GB model while the 256 GB variant costs $699.
The Pro model starts at $899 for the base 128 Gb storage option, while the 256 GB and 512 GB storage options will cost $999 and $1099 respectively.
