For a long time, Google has teased the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. So it's not an exaggeration to claim it's the most anticipated phone of 2021. Pixel and stock Android lovers have been waiting for a phone with comparable specs since their last phone, the Pixel 5, which was more of a downgrade.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagship smartphones have finally been revealed by Google. Both are powered by Google Tensor, the company's latest in-house SoC. Furthermore, the flagship phones are running the latest Android 12 upgrade, which includes significant camera and performance improvements. Let's start with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

The Pixel 6 features a smaller 6.4" display with a flat-screen and noticeable bezels around the design; the Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, has an LTPO display with a 6.7" screen size and a slightly curved display around the edges. In addition, the Pixel 6 has a Tactile alloy frame, and the Pixel 6 Pro has a polished alloy frame. Furthermore, both phones include scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on the front; however, the pro variant only has Gorilla Glass Victus on the back. This year, Google is opting for an in-display fingerprint scanner on both phones, which are also dust and water-resistant to IP68 standards.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro's main cameras now include a 50-megapixel sensor, which is larger than its predecessors and bins photos down to a 12.5-megapixel output. With its 1/1.31” picture sensor and f/1.85 aperture, Google claims it can catch 150 percent more light than the Pixel 5. Both Pixels have 12-megapixel ultrawide lenses, while the 6 Pro adds a third telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom and 48 megapixels of resolution, following the iPhone playbook. On the front, the Pixel 6 has an 8-megapixel selfie camera with an 84-degree field of view, while the 6 Pro has an 11.1-megapixel camera with a 94-degree field of view for easier group selfies.

It's one thing to look at the Pixel 6 phones, but it's the insides that have changed the most. The Qualcomm Snapdragon range of SoCs (system on a chip) used in prior Pixel phones (and many other Android handsets) has been replaced by a proprietary, in-house SoC termed Tensor. Tensor, which combines Google's AI and machine learning prowess to enhance photographs, live caption films, and a variety of other cool things on the fly, took four years to build. According to Google, the Pixel 6 will deliver up to 80% better performance than the Pixel 5.

The performance of the battery has also been increased. The Pixel 6 has a 4,614 mAh battery, whereas the Pixel 6 Pro has a 5,003 mAh battery. Both phones also allow rapid wireless charging. Users may see a considerable boost in battery life with Google's Tensor processor.

Google, as is routine, chose somewhat less-than-flagship prices: the Pixel 6 starts at $599, while the Pixel 6 Pro starts at $899. The less expensive Pixel 6 offers 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage. The RAM on the Pixel 6 Pro has been increased to 12GB, and there's also a 512GB storage option.

You can still report messages to Facebook if required, according to the company.
