The next Google Pixel phone, along with the Pixel 6 Pro, will be available later this month. According to the promotional materials, the Pixel 6 will have two back cameras, a fingerprint sensor, and facial recognition technologies. The smartphone may also be offered through a pre-order campaign in Europe, which is expected to last until October 27.
The Google Pixel 6 will feature a 6.4-inch full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 6 is made with Corning® Gorilla® Glass VictusTM, the hardest Gorilla Glass yet, with up to twice the scratch resistance of prior Pixel phones. 1 It can also withstand water and dust thanks to IP68 protection. As a result, it’s as tough as it is beautiful.
The design of the Pixel 6 is the most noticeable feature. Both Pixel phones have a prominent black rectangular camera bar across the top of their rears, as well as a two-tone design.
The Pixel 6 is available in a variety of colors, including pink, bluish-gray with a soft yellow accent, and black with a light-gray top accent color. The majority of the glass rear appears to be matte, however, the area above the camera bar appears to be brighter and glossier.
The phone appears to have a dual rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor as well as an 8-megapixel selfie camera sensor at the front. The Google Pixel 6 Pro adds a 4X optical-zoom telephoto lens. Google also says that the main wide-angle sensor now lets in 150% more light, but it isn’t sharing any details beyond that.
The Google Pixel 6’s killer feature is the new Tensor SoC, which is focusing big on AI and machine learning. For example, the Tensor Processing Unit could take a blurry image of a toddler and make the child’s face sharper. The TPU would recognize the unclear image is a face and then make the necessary adjustments.
Previous Pixels have struggled in the battery life department. Previous pixel 5 only had a 4,000 mAH battery but the new Pixel 6 will feature a 4,614 mAh battery — a big improvement over the Pixel 5.
Furthermore, according to a fresh report, the Google Pixel 6 could have increased wireless charging power from 10W to 23W.
That would be speedier than the phones by Apple and Samsung.
