While we’ve all gotten a good glimpse of what the Google Pixel 6 series would look like in terms of its design aesthetics, the search engine giant has revealed more of what to expect in terms of the look and feel of its upcoming flagship device in a 30-second video teaser.
The video was all about the device’s physical looks and feel rather than being a 3D render. Another important highlight was the inclusion of the Android 12 UI elements.
The teaser video further gave us a better glance of what the bottom bezel would look like – which is quite thicker than the other three bezels on the device such as the sides and the top.
Google also didn’t shy away from flaunting the variety of color options users get with the Pixel 6 smartphone as different people were shown to be holding all the color variants of the device such as Gold, White, Green/Teal, and Orange.
This will also be Google’s leap forward from using third-party chipsets and switching over to its own Tensor chip. I personally think the experience of the Pixel 6 series is going to be amazing. I like the simplistic design of the device and coupled with its Android 12 UI, we’re talking about a device that’s not only good-looking but also very functional.
The device will reportedly debut in Fall 2021 even though we can’t pinpoint the exact date when the device will eventually be released. Some experts believe the release date could be 28th October which is still quite far in my opinion.
Away from the speculative release date of the Google Pixel 6 series, things we have a better knowledge of are the key specifications of the device some of which were shared by Google itself.
So the base model – Pixel 6 will sport a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate while all the focus is put on the Pixel 6 Pro which sports a 6.7-inch QHD+ display and a faster 120Hz refresh rate.
Both devices will be powered by the Google Tensor which the tech company explained to be made specifically for its Pixel phones. The chip also sports some interesting improvements such as translation, captioning, and dictation. That way, Google virtual assistant will become even easier to summon and tasked.
Away from the chipset and on the camera department, you’ll get a dual-camera system on the base model while the Pro-model will sport a triple setup which includes a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 4x telephoto lens and I’m expecting the Tensor chip to work wonders with the camera post-processing aside other AI and machine learning technologies built within the Pixel 6 camera software.
