The leaks of the Google Pixel 6 series were surfacing like a wildfire, but today Google itself has put it to an end as they unveil the images, naming, and some other features of the upcoming Pixel 6 series.
Behold the new Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The “Pro” moniker is something Google has used for the first time otherwise they had been using the “XL” for a while.
If you take a look at the official renders above, the previously leaked images were mostly accurate, but one thing that surprises us is the colorways that Google has opted for — it’s a welcome surprise for us.
Google has said that the Pixel 6 will feature a matte aluminum finish, which is reminiscent of the Pixel 5. On the other hand, the Pro variant will sport a polished aluminum frame, pointing out that the phone’s back will be made out of glass.
But that’s not the only thing Google mentioned.
Google’s first mobile CPU
There were rumors about Google engineering its own chipset for the Pixel lineup and it was codenamed “Whitechapel”. Now, the rumors have taken a true shape in the form of Google’s first-ever CPU for a mobile device, Google Tensor.
The Tensor silicon is said to put a major emphasis on machine learning and artificial intelligence features. Google said that the Tensor will feature “the most layers of hardware security in any phone”, which is a bold claim, but we’re yet to see if Google has anything to offer in that regard.
Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO, said that the Tensor silicon was in development for the last four years.
Additional information about the Pixel 6 series
According to The Verge, the Google Pixel 6 Pro will feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Pro model will get “slightly” curved edges, while the fingerprint scanner has also been placed underneath the screen. At the rear, the phone will come with three lenses — a new main camera, an ultrawide, and a 4x optical zoom telephoto.
Meanwhile, the standard Pixel 6 will have a 6.4-inch FHD+ screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. The display sits flat and it misses out on a telephoto camera at the back.
Regardless, both phones will get the in-display fingerprint scanner and Tensor chipset. And both phones will also get the Titan M2 security chip in-built
Pichai says both the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will launch this fall, which is around September or early October. We’ll know about its availability and price at the same time.
