Google Pixel 6: the latest in computational photography from Google in a compact size and at a reasonable price

Google finally shows all its cards with the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. After several years with devices that were a step away from the high-end, Google brings us this 2021 two devices with the best of the house, mainly in photography and software but also with technical specifications worthy of competing against the best mobiles of the moment.

The Google Pixel 6 is the small model, with a 6.4-inch panel. It loses the telephoto sensor that the Pro model incorporates, but it maintains its main camera, Tensor’s own processor and a design protected against water and dust. These are all the features of the new Google flagship, in its most compact version.

A recognizable design in a well protected body

Google brings us a mobile with a body less than 16 centimeters high. The Pixel 6 is protected with the Gorilla Glass Victus glass and has IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.

The back of the Pixel has always been the area chosen by Google to innovate in design. This year we have a black strip that hides the rear camera, with the flash located on the right side. In the upper area it has a strip with a more intense tone than the matte body of the rest of the device.

We have a mobile with a 6.4 inch flat screen. The chosen panel is a AMOLED with FullHD + resolution and a hole is incorporated in the upper central area. It also has a 90 Hz refresh rate, an “always on” screen and compatibility with HDR10 + content.

For biometrics, the Pixel 6 has a fingerprint reader integrated under the screen. The USB type C port is in the lower area and we have 5G connectivity.

Generous battery and proprietary ‘Google Tensor’ processor

Last August Google confirmed one of the main novelties of this Pixel 6: its use of the Google’s first proprietary SoC for mobile. The new ‘Google Tensor’ has been manufactured in a process of 5 nanometers and is responsible for allowing the device to perform certain calculations necessary to activate some of the software functions that Google has described.

Until the first performance tests we will not be able to determine its power, but it is estimated that the performance of this Google-own chip is close to the Snapdragon 870. A step behind the Qualcomm flagship chip but also located within the high-end range. As Google explains, its performance is at the same level as the Snapdragon 888. Along with Tensor the Titan M2 security chip.

Accompanying the new processor we have 8 GB RAM memory and a storage that starts from 128 GB. On the battery is where Google has been more generous than other years, increasing up to 4,614 mAh along with a fast charge of 30W and wireless charging of 21W.

50 megapixel camera accompanied by new functions

The photographic section is undoubtedly the one that most of us associate with the Pixel range. This year the Pixel 6 offers a dual camera with a 50-megapixel main sensor, accompanied by a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor. As described by Google, the main sensor is capable of capturing “up to 150% more light than the Pixel 5”.

As already leaked weeks ago, among the new functions of the camera is that of “magic rubber”, which allows you to remove objects and strangers from Google Photos, and ‘Face Unblur’ that promises to outline a face that has been out of focus. For the front camera we have an 8 megapixel sensor.

Up to five years of security updates

Android 12 and its new design ‘Material You’ will make an appearance in a Google Pixel 6 that also promises up to five years of security updates.

Among the functions that Google incorporates thanks to the use of its new processor is that of offline translation, being able to go to the Google translator without the need for a connection.

The new Google Pixel 6 is already available to reserve initially in the United States and European countries such as France, Germany or the United Kingdom, but not Spain. We will update when Google communicates the availability and official price. The official colors of the Google Pixel 6 are the black, red and a turquoise shade of green.

Its cost starts at 599 dollars (US) or 649 euros (Germany) for the 128GB model. A competitive price that could help drive Pixel sales above the levels we’ve had to date.
