With the Pixel 6 series, Google is showing that its phones are ready for the spotlight, between the more affordable Pixel 6 and the high-end upgrades of the Pixel 6 Pro.

The design of the Pixel 6 series is one of its most interesting aspects. The two phones employ a two-tone design with a black camera bump covering the entire width of the back. The series already work under the control of Android 12, but the manufacturer will support the devices with four major updates. This means that users will be able to count on an update to Android 16. There are also security patches that will be delivered to smartphones for five years after the premiere. The devices use the proprietary octa-core Google Tensor chipset produced in 5 nm technological process, which provides up to 80% higher performance than the processor used in the previous generation. The SoC consists of a 20-core GPU and an 8-core CPU consisting of two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76, and four Cortex-A55 cores. The unit is supported by a Titan M2 security chip. The basic model is available in 8 + 128 configurations, while the Pro variant uses 12 GB RAM and UFS 128 GB and 256 GB memory.

The basic Google Pixel 6 receives a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate, which displays the image at a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The Pro is already a 6.71-inch LTPO with a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels and adaptive refreshing of 10-120 Hz. Both units are protected by a layer of chemically toughened Corning Gorilla Glass GG Victus. Although the designs do not include a headphone connector, we can count on stereo speakers, which are already standard in this price range. In terms of the modules used, we received WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, 5G, NFC, and USB-C 3.1. In both cases (Pixel 6 and 6 Pro), will be secured by biometrics access – a fingerprint reader under the screen and face recognition.
