Two of the devices making the rounds for a few months now are the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, everyone has been talking about it, everyone is expecting it’s arrival and the time it now here. Let us talk about all the goodies we should expect from the Pixel 6.
Google officially announced the launch date for the Pixel 6 and it set the 19th of October to be the day. Like said earlier there has been a lot of hype around this device and I can tell you that it is for the right reasons.
An official launch page was set up to draw awareness to the launch of the pixel 6 and from this we can see the use of Google’s Material You themes as this will be one of the big features of Android 12’s customisation options which we will talk about in a bit. Let us consider a few possible selling points of the Pixel 6 lineup.
Google Tensor Chip.
The Google Pixel 6 and 6 pro will no longer use the accustomed Snapdragon chips as with their predecessor, this time Google is shifting attention to it’s very own chip, the Google Tensor.
We heard rumors of Google working on its own chip for mainstream production and finally the day to really see what it can do is coming closer. I feel that this new chipset definitely holds a lot for Google Pixel devices and also Google’s product line. It is like putting power in Google’s hands.
Will this chipset outperform the already standing flagship chipsets? Will it create a new norm in the world of photography? Will it set a new benchmark for upcoming chips to beat? Get the answers to these questions on the 19th of October 2021.
Google Pixel 6 And 6 Pro New Design Language.
Ever since the conception of the Pixel line by Google, design on every device launched has been kept to the barest minimal. This is something I liked about Pixel devices, they look basic yet pack so much power.
But all of that is going to change with the Pixel 6 and 6 pro, these devices have an altogether new design language. This time Google slapped the main camera module right across the top end of the device hence drawing attention to the cameras. We see a center punch hole selfie camera up front as against the corner cutout and that is not all happening at the front, we also now have a 120 Hz display on the pro model. With these changes there is no doubt that Google is gunning for the flagship tier.
The All New SnowCone! Android 12!
Yes, SnowCone. That is the code name of the Android 12 OS and certainly Google’s Android has not gotten tired of code naming their Operating systems after snacks. We have tried out the Android 12 beta you can check out our review here. The article linked explains the beauty of the Android 12, but the Pixel 6 and 6 pro will take this beauty even further. How? Material You!
This is Google’s way of giving you the key to the castle as it is, hence allowing you to alter how your phone generally looks. You can match your device theme with your wallpaper, brush up certain animations and a lot more. The Pixel 6 and 6 pro will be the first devices to launch with Android 12 out of the box.
At What Price Will The Google Pixel 6 Lineup Start?
At the moment there is no clear price as to the exact pricing of this device, but we sure know that it will be flagship (especially the pro model). A recent leak has suggested that the pricing of this device will be around $800-$750 for the Pixel 6 and even more than that for the 6 Pro.
That price is way above whatever we are used paying for Pixel devices, the Pixel 5a cost just $540 and this is the most recent Pixel device yet. But whatever the price is, the specs should sure justify it, right? So we need to wait to hear the exact specs and pricing of this device from Google on the 19th of October.
