Google, for now, is more interested in letting us know that the upcoming Google Pixel 6 will be powered by a custom system-on-chip called Tensor. Alongside the usual CPU, GPU, 5G modem, the chip also has a mobile Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) and a new Titan M2 chip.
The new security core and Titan M2 combines to make the Pixel 6 the phone with the most layers of hardware security. Theoretically speaking, it should make the phone one of, if not the most, secured mass marketed phone yet.
Not surprisingly, the chip is customized to run Google’s computational photography models. Also no surprise is, AI and Machine Learning are a big part of the new chip.
The devices, which will be fully revealed this Fall, are expected to run on Android 12 (obviously) and rocks upgraded rear camera system with improved sensors and lenses on the newly design “camera bar”.
As for the specs, Google have shared bits of details with select media. According to The Verge, the Pro model will tout a 120 Hz 6.7-inch QHD+ display and a tri-camera set featuring a new wide-angle snapper, an ultra-wide camera, and a “folded telephoto lens” with 4x optical zoom.
The Pixel 6, on the other hand, is outfitted with a 90Hz 6.4-inch FHD+ display, and a dual-camera setup.
Both phone will be powered by the same Tensor chip, featuring Titan M2 security chip, and in-display fingerprint sensor. RAM and ROM will, of course, be different. That’s all we know for now.
