Google gives the world its first official glimpse of the Pixel 6 – TechCrunch
While the company is yet to reveal everything about it, this morning Google gave the world its first official look at its next flagship phone: the Pixel 6.
Here’s what we know so far:
- It will come in two forms: Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
- The Base 6 will have a matte aluminum finish with a 6.4 ″ display, while the Pro will have a brighter polished aluminum finish with a 6.7 ″.
- Pixel 6 has dual cameras (wide and ultra wide), while the 6 Pro adds telephoto zoom
- If you were hoping that the growing trend of “camera bump” was about to go away… not quite. The bump has now become the “camera bar,” with Google’s Rick Osterloh noting that better sensors and lenses just wouldn’t fit in a smaller body.
- These will be the first phones to run Tensor, Google’s first fully customized system-on-a-chip. Previous Pixels have run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform. Google CEO Sundar Pichai Says they have been working on the chip for more than 4 years. In a blog post announcing the devices, Osterloh suggests that the focus here is on creating an AI and ML-friendly chip on the device.
- They will be shipped “this fall”.
Lots of details including prices and a lot of the spec sheet (CPU, RAM, etc.)
