The Google Pixel 6 is expected to hit retail shelves later this year. There are two versions of the smartphone, with the Pro version being the most expensive of the two. Google stunned the world by announcing the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, as well as a few noteworthy specifications. Here are the top reasons we are excited to get our hands on Google’s new phone, and why you should be, too.
New Camera System
The cameras on Google’s Pixel phones have always been good, with good low-light and HDR performance, but the last few versions haven’t really pushed the competition to a serious level. With an improved image sensor that is dedicated to catch 150 percent more light than its predecessor, the Pixel 6 promises to be an improvement. And, especially in low-light circumstances, more light implies better-looking images.
There’s also a 4x optical zoom lens which are the main show here because zoom lenses can help you uncover more immense details in your photography that you would have missed if you only used a wide-angle lens. The telephoto zoom lens will be exclusive to the Pixel 6 Pro, while the ordinary Pixel 6 will get the conventional zoom and ultrawide lens.
The cameras’ megapixel count are likewise unknown, however specs from leaker Jon Prosser claim that both versions will have a 50-megapixel wide camera and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. The telephoto zoom lens on the Pro is expected to have a resolution of 48 megapixels.
Google Pixel 6 has a Tensor Chip
The Google Pixel 6’s highlight feature is the new Tensor SoC, which is heavily focused on AI and machine learning. The Tensor Processing Unit, for example, could sharpen the face of a toddler in a hazy snapshot. The TPU detects the presence of a face and adapts accordingly.
The Pixel 6 can also use AI and computational photography to enhance video. The Pixel 6 can automatically alter the white balance and improve the dynamic range when shooting a sunset, for example. When utilizing speech-to-text, the TPU allows you to modify words on the keyboard while speaking, and the transition from speaking to typing is almost quick. Tensor can do a lot of things, and these are just a few of them. The Tensor processor could have a future beyond the Pixel 6 series, according to Google. According to a report, Tensor will power the Pixel Fold if it turns out to be more than a rumor.
The Pixel 6 will be one of the first phones to run Android 12 out of the box. We’ve been using it in beta form for a while now, and there’s a lot to enjoy about it that we’re looking forward to trying out on the Pixel 6. Android will sample the main hue in your new background image and use it to change the notification bar, icons, fonts, and everything else across the interface to give it a consistent look. Android 12 also improves privacy by allowing you to disable system access to your cameras and microphones, just in case you’re worried about specific apps listening in when you don’t want them to.
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were completely overhauled. The camera module on the back, which stretches from one side of the phone to the next, is the most prominent design detail. The rear camera array provides the Pixel 6 a new aesthetic that has been lacking from the normally simple and minimal design of the Pixel. It covers the entire phone’s width, with different colors above and below. The camera array has a gentle slant to it at the corners, which should make it easier to handle.
The Pixel 6’s design may seem compromised in terms of aesthetics, but its usefulness is undeniable: because to its symmetry, it will lay flat on a table. Most newer phones, on the other hand, wobble due to protruding camera modules, atleast Google Pixel 6 won’t let the rear camera composition bear the rough surfaces.
