Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Announced, Use Google’s Own Tensor Chip

Pixel 6 and 6 Pro Announced, Use Google's Own Tensor Chip

Google surprisingly announced Pixel 6 and 6 Pro which has been leaked on the internet for a long time. Both phones are powered by Google’s own Tensor chipset, camera sensor and a new design.

Tensor is designed by Google in-house, although it may be produced by a third party. It’s similar to iPhone which uses a chipset designed by Apple, but manufactured by TSMC.

Unfortunately the internet search giant did not provide details about this new chipset. Just making sure Tensor will make the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro faster, smarter and more secure than ever.

One that stands out is its AI and machine learning capabilities. These two reasons are also why Google is finally willing to invest in designing its own chipset, so that they can implement AI and machine learning in a way that other chipsets on the market cannot.

These two features will be utilized by the new camera system on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Both of these phones have cameras with wide and ultra-wide lenses.

Especially for the Pixel 6 Pro version, there will be a telephoto camera with 4x optical zoom. It looks like Google is adopting a periscope lens according to previously leaked leaks.

Google seems to have improved the video recording capabilities. Initial reports reveal that Pixel 6 and the 6 Pro captures video of similar or even better quality than the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

But what is certain is that the Mountainview-based company provides two of its phones using sensors and lenses that have been previously upgraded. Because the size is too large than before, Google has placed it on a horizontal module that stands out at the back.

Speaking of design, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro come with new materials and finishes. The Pixel 6 has an aluminum frame that has a matte finish, the Pixel 6 Pro also uses aluminum but only has a slight polish. Both phones have a layer of glass on the back.

The Pixel 6 will have a 90Hz flat panel while the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 120Hz curved display. Both will have a single punch hole camera at the top.

Both will run Android 12 when launched. For the full features and specifications, Google will only reveal when the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro launch in October.
