Aside from the prominent leaks, Google itself had given a hint of the phone with a peeled wallpaper featuring its new custom-made processer to go with the device. The new Pixel phones are believed to be the most hyped-up android device in the market currently.
Google says these phones are the most feature-packed Pixel smartphones ever created thanks to Google’s new chip, Tensor. The chip is capable of handling complex machine learning algorithms. The company believes the chip will improve the Pixel smartphone experience for users. The Pixel 6 phones have pretty major features you would expect in a flagship Android device, including OLED panels, stereo speakers, full 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6E, IP68 water resistance, and wireless charging.
Google has set aggressive pricing given the features. The Pixel 6 starts at $599. Similarly, the slightly better version, the Pixel 6 Pro starts at 899$. As the title, “Pro” status, the Pixel 6 Pro has enhanced camera capabilities, according to Google.
Pixel is known to have competitive prices. With that, the new Pixels set its spot alongside Apple’s, Samsung’s, and OnePlus’ recently launched flagship devices.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have a redefined design giving a luxury feel to its users. The cameras have been placed horizontally along with a glass panel that adjusts with a black visor.
Above the glass panel is an accented color that is different from what’s below the panel. The Pixel 6 offers three new standing out colors, Sorta Seafoam, Stormy Black, and Kinda Coral. The Pixel 6 Pro can be chosen among Sorta Sunny, Stormy Black, and Cloudy White.
The Pixel 6 consists of a 90Hz screen refresh rate and a 1,080×2,400 pixel resolution. The new Tensor chip is said to deliver up to 80 percent faster performance over the Qualcomm-powered Pixel 5. It is joined by 8GB of RAM and a storage option of 128GB or 256GB.
The device is powered by a 4,524mAh battery cell expected to last more than a day. Similarly, Pixel 6 Pro is packed with a 120Hz screen refresh rate and a higher 1,440×3,120 pixel resolution. The Pixel 6 Pro is slightly bigger than the Pixel 6, giving more battery room. It is powered by a 4,905mAh battery and is packed with 12GB of RAM. The storage is expandable up to 512GB.
Neither of the phones consist a microSD card slot nor a headphone jack. The new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are up for pre-order and are set to go on sale officially on October 28.
