Google Launches New Flagship Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Smartphones Priced at $599 and $899

Google today unveiled its new flagship smartphones, the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro. These two new smartphones are already receiving positive reviews due to their premium feature set and affordable price.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, both priced at $599 and $899 respectively, are Google's first smartphones to be equipped with the Google Tensor-on-achip. Apple has used its own mobile chips for years, so Google's decision to create its own Tensor chips allows for greater integration of hardware and applications.

The Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 6 Pro boasts a curved-edge, 6.7-inch OLED screen and a 120Hz refresh.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, as we can see in photos taken prior to their launch, have a unique unibody design with a rear camera bar along with an edge-to–edge display with hole punch cutouts for the front-facing cameras.

Google claims that the matte black camera bars are designed to create a clean, symmetrical design. There are several color options for the Pixel 6 devices, with each having a two-tone design.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro both have a 50-megapixel wide angle camera with 150 percent greater light capture. Both models also come equipped with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens. The Pixel 6 Pro also features a 48-megapixel telephoto lens, which supports up to 4x optical zoom.

Google also offers new camera features such as Magic Eraser which can remove unwanted objects from images. The new Motion Mode includes Long Exposure and Action Pan, as well as a Real Tone option that makes photos appear more real to life. Google sought input from colorists, cinematographers and photographers to improve its auto-enhancement features.

The front-facing cameras of the two models are different. The Pixel 6 features an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, while the Pixel 6 Pro boasts an 11.1-megapixel lens that has a wider field-of-view.

Tensor chips allow for AI enhancements, with new smartphones offering improved speech recognition and language understanding models. Pixel 6 users have the ability to communicate with others in multiple languages using Live Translate. This includes English, French German, Italian and Japanese. Apple has added a Translate App for these types of translations. However, Google's version works in the messaging app.

Both smartphones are compatible with 5G at mmWave speeds. The Pixel 6 Pro also has an Ultra Wideband chip that improves indoor positioning. The Pro has 12GB RAM, compared to 8GB on the Pixel 6. It also supports storage up to 512GB.

Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are running Android 12, the most recent version of Android's operating system. Google also offers a new Pixel Pass, which bundles multiple Google services together at $45 (Pixel 6 and $55 (Pixel 6 Professional) per month. This is similar to Apple One. Pixel Pass includes YouTube Premium and YouTube Music Premium, Google One, 200GB cloud storage, Google Play Pass, games, and coverage for Preferred Care devices.

Many media sites have done reviews of the Pixel 6 smartphones.

Pre-orders for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are available starting today and will be launched on October 28.
