It’s been months of leaks that have been proven to be pretty accurate from reputable sources. Google Finally took the wraps off their latest smartphones despite some concealed specifications, I bet they’re keeping the best for the last when it finally debuts this fall towards the holiday season. Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will showcase the best of Android 12 Material You design.
The device comes with a custom SoC, Google Silicon, which is said to be have been in the works for 4 years now. They call it Google Tensor is responsible for processing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning tasks on the device instead of relying on the cloud. This enables better pictures and videos as the device is capable of processing images better, on-device speech recognition, and more. We’ll know what this device will be capable of when it launches later this year.
As for the cameras, it comes with a triple camera set-up for the pro and dual for the regular 6. The pro comes with a telephoto with 4x optical zoom while the Pixel 6 comes without the telephoto camera. Pixel 6 and Pro come with new camera sensors, unlike previous Pixel devices which were equipped with the same sensor from Pixel 2 all the way to Pixel 5a. It is amazing what they could do with such an old camera.
The display of the Google Pixel 6 is 6.4 inches with a refresh rate of 90Hz. The Pixel 6 Pro is 6.7 inches with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The front-facing camera is centered, unlike the older Pixels which had its front-facing on the side. The fingerprint sensor is also underneath the display. It used to be behind the phone for prior models.
As for the colors, Pixel 6 Pro comes in Grey, Champagne, and Silver while the Pixel 6 comes in Grey, Champagne, and Red. Their specific color naming schemes are not yet official though they had Just Black and Clearly White for their previous devices, there’s a possibility of something close in Pixel 6.
All these were made public by Google made by Google Twitter account and are also available in the Google store.
And finally, for the pricing, CNET says this will come with a premium price tag. No word on the specific figure yet.
Google ditched the XL branding for the bigger device and went with a Pro for the 6. This move was likely made so that it can be consistent with current industry trends on branding.
