The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have arrived with Google’s newest Tensor processor, and both models have a premium design, but we won’t be seeing funky power buttons from now onwards.
Both smartphones have a similar appearance but differ in terms of specifications and pricing. The rear design is unlike anything we’ve seen in any previous smartphone, powered by Google’s custom silicon that is built on 5 nm architecture.
The comprehensive leaks feel good to be true, and the price tag is something that attracts customers; the Google Pixel 6 starts at $599, while the Pixel 6 Pro starts at $899, which is significantly less than its competitors.
The hardware is well improved in this series. The Google Pixel 6 Pro is larger than the Pixel 6, and it offers many notable improvements over the Pixel 6. It has a bigger 6.7-inch screen, a better 1440p resolution, and a higher refresh rate of 120Hz. It’s an LTPO AMOLED with variable refresh rate to save battery life.
In comparison, the Pixel 6 boasts a 6.4-inch 1080p AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Both phones are protected by Gorilla Glass Victus, but the Pixel 6 Pro has a curve display, which Google refers to as 3D glass. Both feature built-in fingerprint scanners, which are most likely optical.
The Pixel 6 Pro also has a camera hardware advantage, with a dedicated 4x zoom camera sitting in front of a huge 48MP sensor that Google claims can go up to 20X with the assistance of ‘Super Res Zoom.’ The Pixel 6 Pro includes an ultrawide 11.1MP fixed-focus selfie camera on the front, which is a step-up over the Pixel 6’s 8MP standard selfie.
Basically, it’s a 50MP 1/1.3-inch Samsung GN1 sensor that combines pixels to produce a final 12.5MP image, as well as a 12MP ultrawide camera The 50MP primary camera is a significant upgrade over the Google Pixel 5’s main sensor (which was the same size as the Pixel 4, 3, and 2), with a 150 percent boost in light collecting capabilities.
The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro have Live Translate, which can translate messages, subtitles, or text in the camera viewfinder into up to 55 different languages. The phones may function as an interpreter in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, or Spanish using Tensor without the internet!
Whereas, Tensor also has a built-in Titan M2 security chip, which protects your photos, texts, and sensitive data from outside attacks. To help bolster its custom chip, Google promises up to 5 years of security updates to its Pixel 6 lineup.
The Google Pixel 6 has a textured aluminum frame and is available for pre-order in three colors – Sorta Seafoam, Kinda Coral, and Stormy Black – as well as 8/128GB and 8/256GB memory levels, with prices staring at €649 and $599, respectively.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro features a polished aluminum frame and is available in three colorways: Cloudy White, Sorta Sunny, and Stormy Black, as well as two memory configurations: 12/128GB, 12/256GB, and even 12/512GB. Prices begin at €898 in Europe and $899 in the United States.
The best thing about Google devices is that they come with years of security updates, and this Google Pixel 6 series will come with 5 years.
The color scheme sound cool! They look good in picture too, but we have to grab our hands to see a better look. Both phones are now available for pre-order, with initial shipments due on October 28.
