The new Google Pixel 6 is equipped with a completely new chip designed by Google, called Tensor – named after the process units used in the company’s data centres. This of course means it’s exceptional technology. The latter is designed to increase the speed and performance of phones – especially their artificial intelligence – AI.
The main cameras are mounted in a distinctive rear strip. Both models offer a 50-megapixel main camera wired with a sensor that delivers 12.5 megapixels. The results are brighter photos with better details and more accurate colours. Google claims the new main camera can capture 150% more light than the main camera on the Pixel 5. It is accompanied by an ultra-wide 12-megapixel camera. The Pro model also has a 4x camera this time around. The front boasts an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
The standard Pixel 6 model features a 6.4-inch 1080p display running at 90Hz, while the 6 Pro model boasts a 6.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440p, which is curved to reduce edges and includes LTPO technology to change the refresh rate from 10-120Hz. Data storage starts at 128 GB on both models.
The Pixel 6 supports sub-6 5G. Google says that battery life is only a single day when using 5G. The Pixel 6 has a 4,614-mAh battery and supports 30-watt USB-C fast charging, the fast-charger is sold separately.
While the camera strip is accented in Black the rest of the Pixel 6 is a two-tone design, as a nod to the original Pixels. The Pixel 6 comes in Sorta Seafoam, Stormy Black, and Kinda Coral and you can choose from Sorta Sunny, Stormy Black, and Cloudy White on the Pixel 6 Pro.
