Today, Google is launching the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, but it’s more accurate to call it a tease or a teaser. Rather than disclosing all of the details about its new Android phones, Google is focusing on the new system on a chip (SoC) that will be found inside the Pixels.
The Tensor SoC is named after Google’s Tensor Processing Units (TPU), which are used in its data centers.
A tensor is an integrated circuit, not a single processor. So, although it’s reasonable to call it Google-designed, it’s still unclear which components were created by Google and which were licensed from third parties.
Google is expected to release two new products: a mobile TPU for AI operations and a new Titan M2 processor for security. The remainder of the components, such as the CPU, GPU, and 5G modem, remains a mystery.
The phones themselves are less mysterious. Last week, I spent about an hour at Google’s Mountain View campus looking at phone hardware and spoke about Rick Osterloh, Google’s hardware chief, about Tensor. After all of that, my biggest takeaway from the Pixel 6 phones is straightforward.
Both Pixel models were glass sandwiches with fit-and-finish that finally competed with what Samsung, Huawei, and Apple have to offer.
“We haven’t been in the flagship tier in a couple of years, but this will be different,” Osterloh adds. He also concedes that “it will undoubtedly be a premium-priced product,” which I interpret as meaning anything costing more than $1,000.
Google is simply revealing a few essential characteristics for each phone, with the rest of the information to come later – most likely in October. (And no, a foldable phone or a watch were not mentioned.) During our encounter, Google also refused to allow us to capture images or videos of the gadgets. In any case, here’s what we’ve learned thus far.
A 6.7-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate will be included on the Pixel 6 Pro. The screen’s borders are softly curved, melding into the side’s gleaming, polished metal rails.
On the back, there are three cameras: a new wide-angle main sensor, an ultrawide sensor, and a 4X optical-zoom folded telephoto lens. Google hasn’t revealed any details about the camera other than the fact that the main wide-angle sensor captures 150 percent more light.
The Pixel 6 boasts a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. It has a flawlessly flat screen with matte-finish rails. The telephoto camera is also gone.
Despite the changes in RAM, both phones will have the new Tensor SoC, a Titan M2 security chip, and an in-display fingerprint reader. The two sorts of phones will have somewhat different color selections.
Google’s Pixel 6 April Update Includes Camera and Charging Improvements
The update addresses “issues causing front-facing camera preview in certain apps to look zoomed in,” according to Google. It also fixed a bug that caused a green screen to show in the camera preview on occasion. On the wireless charging front, there’s a fix for “certain accessories” performance difficulties, which have been reported on Reddit and elsewhere with different Qi charging stands.
It also corrected many UI flaws and glitches (on all Pixel devices from the 3XL up), including crashes in Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode, error messages with certain live wallpapers, and erroneous animation displays, and more (on all Pixel devices from the 3XL up). It also contains security updates, including one for a “high-security vulnerability in the Framework component that might lead to local escalation of privilege,” according to a security alert.
The March security release, which arrived two weeks late, corrected several critical problems relating to WiFi connection, battery management, and fingerprint recognition. It did, however, make haptic vibrations weaker, which led to user complaints on numerous sites.
Google has recognized the problem, but no patch or update has been announced. Meanwhile, Google says the April update will be available “over the next week in segments depending on carrier or device,” so expect it soon.
Review of the Google Pixel 6
Whether or not the Google Pixel 6 is a superb phone — and it is — you can’t deny that its debut has created an impact.
Smartphones that aren’t created by Apple or Samsung are in a fierce battle for recognition. But there’s no doubting that the Pixel 6 is unlike any other Google phone, from its striking new shape to the Google-designed software.
The company’s flagship devices now use the Tensor CPU. Another reason the Pixel 6 stands out is its low price of $599, but different carriers may charge you extra.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, in other words, demand your attention. The goal of this Google Pixel 6 review is to see if the phone can maintain your attention. The Pixel 6 bears the brunt of the responsibility.
Tensor chip, which allows the phone’s camera to detect text and, if it’s in a foreign language, translate it on the fly. Pixel features like voice-driven typing and robocall filtering, as well as a slew of new picture processing capabilities, are all enabled by the new CPU.
Top Features of the Google Pixel 6
- Machine learning features are powered by new Tensor processors, although overall performance lags behind the Snapdragon 888.
- The Pixel 6’s main camera features a 50MP sensor, while the ultrawide angle camera has a 12MP sensor and a 114-degree field of view.
Magic Eraser makes it simple to eliminate people and objects from your photographs’ backgrounds.
- Battery life varies, with poor performance over 5G connections and good performance over LTE.
- Android 12 brings a new interface to the Pixel, with wallpapers and icons that match the aesthetic of your phone.
