Google has finally lifted the lid off their latest Pixel series of smartphones with the Pixel 6 and the larger Pixel 6 Pro, dropping the usual XL name. The company also dropped a lot more information on their new custom chip which Google calls the Google Tensor chip.

Say hello to the new Pixel 6 series

The new Pixel 6 series will feature a brand-new overall design language when compared to the previous Pixel phones. In a new blog post, Google explains that the new design will “redefine what it means to be a Pixel”. The new Pixel devices will feature an industrial design with the 6 coming with a matte aluminium finish while the Pro will be coming with a light polished aluminium frame.

Both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will come in three different colour variants and features a unique camera bump, or as Google calls it, a “camera bar”. There isn’t much information on the camera setup at the moment, but we know that both Pixel devices will come with a triple camera setup. The Pro version will feature a telephoto lens with up to 4x optical zoom while the normal Pixel 6 won’t.

The new Google Tensor custom SoC powering both the Pixel devices will feature AI and Machine Learning at its core. The new Google Tensor chip is said to be designed “to make Pixel even more capable”. The Tensor chip will feature more enhanced hardware security as it comes with a new security core and Titan M2. The new chip will also see a “transformed experience” for the new Pixel series’ camera, speech recognition as well as “many other Pixel 6 features”.

The Pixel 6 series will also come with Android 12 out of the box and the new Material You style that the company introduced during their last Google I/O event.

Google says that the new Pixel smartphones will launch sometime this fall though a specific was not mentioned. For more information, head over to the official website right here.

Pokdepinion: I haven’t been excited for a Pixel device since maybe the Pixel 2 series. Too bad the phones won’t be officially available here in Malaysia because if they were I would definitely go for them.
