Google is expected to unveil its next-generation Pixel phones in October 2021. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be powered by the company’s self-developed Tensor chip. Another interesting thing is that the upcoming Pixel phones have new design and Android 12 OS with Material You design. While we wait for an official launch date, the Google Pixel 6 Pro has been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench that reveals some key details about the phone as well as the Tensor chip.
According to the Geekbench listing, Google’s Tensor chip is code-named “raven”. It is an octa-core processor which consists of 1 × 2.84GHz core + 3 × 2.42GHz cores + 4 × 1.80GHz. The listing further reveals that the Pixel 6 Pro has a 12GB RAM variant. When tested on Geekbench v5, the device scored 881 points in the single-core test and 2938 points in the multiple.
Geekbench scores are pretty much close to what OnePlus Nord 2 5G and other mid-range can pull off. Although the Geekbench listing is suggesting something else, the new chip is rumored to outperform Snapdragon 888+ SoC. It is also rumored that Google’s Tensor chip is an unreleased Exynos 9855 chip which is said to be fabricated on a 5nm process.
The Pixel 6 Pro is said to have a 6.7-inch OLED display with QHD+ 120Hz refresh rate support. It will feature a triple camera setup on the back which may include a 50MP Samsung GN1 primary sensor, a 48MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP ultrawide lens. According to a reliable tipster Jon Prosser, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be up for pre-order from October 19.
