Google Pixel 6 ($599USD) and Pixel 6 Pro ($899USD) smartphones have recently been introduced to consumers, question is whether the Pixel 6 phones are anything new and exciting. Previous Pixel phones did not have all the features of the new Pixel 6 phones. One prominent Pixel 6 phone feature is Google’s Tensor chip with up to 80% faster performance for speed and responsiveness making it Google’s most powerful chip yet- a smarter chip equals a smarter phone:
“Utilizing Google’s expertise in AI and ML, we created a brand new technology platform to deliver a more helpful, intelligent, and personalized Pixel than ever before. Find out how Google Tensor’s data-center-caliber ML, image processor, security, and contextual awareness help anticipate, recognize, and respond to your individual needs.”
Not only did Pixel 6 invent its own chip, Pixel 6’s camera has been redone, “Pixel 6 has bigger sensors to help you capture more color, more detail, and 150% more light than Pixel 5.” Pixel 6 Pro exclusively has a Triple rear camera system, 50MP wide, 12MP ultrawide, 48MP telephoto and LDAF sensor. Pixel 6 dual rear camera system has the same features except for telephoto. The front camera ranges from Pixel 6, 8MP and Pixel 6 Pro, 11.1MP.
With becoming more of a concern than ever, Google has increased security observance by introducing Google-powered protection built in via the new Titan M2 chip, Google Tensor, fingerprint unlock, 5 years of security updates and security core “work together to help keep your private life private.”
