The upcoming Android flagships Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have been officially announced a few months before the launch. Google decided to preliminarily talk about using a completely new processor and design concept, which will be radically different from its predecessor. As expected, the main feature of smartphones will be a self-developed single-chip system.
Google’s first mobile platform was named Tensor SoC. The chipset leverages Tensor Coprocessor (TPU) AI technologies to efficiently handle machine learning-related operations (computational photography, offline text-to-speech, and so on) and also includes the enhanced Titan M2 security module. The tech giant promises that the Titan M2 will provide “the most levels of hardware security available on any other smartphone.”
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro bodies are made of glass and aluminum, with a matte finish in the standard model and a polished finish in the advanced model. The screen diagonals will be 6.4 inches (90 Hz) in the Pixel 6 and 6.7 inches (120 Hz) in the Pixel 6 Pro. The camera modules will be updated: the sensors will be placed in a beautiful glass panel instead of a square block, as was the case in the Pixel 5. The Pixel 6 Pro will have an additional telephoto lens with 4x zoom.
The full announcement of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will take place in the fall of 2021. Specifications, pricing, and availability information will be announced at the event. The smartphones will be preinstalled with the Android 12 operating system with the Material You interface and in-depth personalization.
