Google today dropped some information on their upcoming devices the Pixel 6 and PIxel 6 pro and no they are NOT leaks, we don’t cover leaks and never will and we rather wait to get our news from the horse’s mouth and today that has happened with the two much anticipated devices set to launch this year and eager fans of pixel devices like myself look forward to getting one of them when they do launch.
The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 pro will come with their own silicon too which is akin to what other manufacturers like Apple Huawei and Samsung are doing and this can be cost saving which hopefully reflects in the price when they do launch so let’s see what the specs are that have been dropped today.. No battery capacity has been given which is interesting but with their new silicon the Tensor SoC (System on a Chip) you would be sure to see things very well optimized.
The Pixel 6
Google Tensor Chip / 6.4” Flat FHD 90Hz / Dual Camera (Primary, Ultrawide) / In-display fingerprint sensor / Android 12 with Material You
The Pixel 6 Pro
Google Tensor Chip / 6.7” Curved QHD 120Hz / Triple Camera (Primary, Ultrawide, Telephoto 4x) / In-display fingerprint sensor
Android 12 with Material You
The design would bring you back to the Nexus P which had a bar going right across the rear which is fine and the new design is quite nice too and moving away from the usual set with a block on one side and I think it is nice and it stands out, this is placed high on the top of the device and this means the phone should not rock if flat on a table and presuming there will be cases to go with the devices this will also eliminate the rocking effect and of course offer added protection and it will be nice to see what cases they do bring us on launch day.
The colour scheme here too is nice and different and moving away from the traditional offerings most manufacturers give us and in saying that they did so with the Pixel 5 from last year which I still use today and love it the two tone look is quite nice and there is two finishes on the camera bar one being silver and one being black and my preference being the silver finish with the orange accents.
Why show off these devices now one might ask? Well google have been known not to keep their cards close to their chest but they have left out some other important specs but at least we get to see the device and maybe they are flexing abit here and is shaping up to be a true flagship
