Google has officially announced the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro at the ‘Pixel Fall Launch’ live stream, shot entirely at Google’s New York Store.
The Pixel 6, the little brother of the Pixel 6 Pro, starts at a price of USD 599 and features the new Google Tensor SoC and 8GB of RAM, with storage starting from 128 GB to all the way up to 256GB. However, on the other hand, the bigger brother, the Pixel 6 Pro, starting from USD 899, features the new Google Tensor SoC paired with 12GB of RAM and storage options starting from 128GB to all the way up to 512GB.
When it comes to the display, the Pixel 6 has a slightly smaller FHD+ screen at 6.4-inches with support for variable refresh rate up to 90Hz, while also having a slightly smaller battery at 4614 mAh. While the Pixel 6 Pro has a larger QHD+ LTPO display at 6.7-inches with support for variable refresh rate up to 120Hz and features a larger 5003 mAh battery.
In terms of camera, the Pixel 6 rocks a dual rear camera system with 50MP wide and 12 MP ultra-wide sensors while having an 8MP camera on the front. While, on the other hand, the Pixel 6 Pro rocks a triple camera system on the rear, with 50MP wide, 12 MP ultra-wide, and a 45MP telephoto sensor, as opposed to the Pixel 6, which has only the first two sensors. While on the front, the Pixel 6 Pro features an 11.1MP selfie camera. Additionally, other camera features such as Magic Eraser and Motion Mode will be available on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro.
Apart from this exclusive feature only available on the Pixel 6 Pro, Google has introduced many new upgrades to both models; both the models now come with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and back for enhanced protection.
Google has also introduced many new security features baked into the Android 12 operating system and the hardware. Both devices come with an under-display fingerprint scanner and the newly upgraded Titan M2 security chip, with a new Google Tensor security core on the hardware level, with a promise of 5 years of security updates.
Overall, both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro seem like solid contenders ready to take on other flagship devices in terms of looks as well as performance. We are very excited to see what Google Tensor has up its sleeve and how it compares to other flagship processors from the likes of Qualcomm as well as Apple.
