Google launches Pixel 6 with its own custom-made chip

Pixel 6 smartphones were finally unveiled by Google, taking a big step toward becoming true Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy competitors.

At a virtual press conference, the tech giant showed off the new 6.4-inch Pixel 6 and 6.7-inch Pixel 6 Pro, which run on Android 12, Google’s most significant software update in years.

The Pixel 6 has a flat 6.4in 90Hz OLED screen and new 50-megapixel main and 12MP ultra-wide cameras on the back and 8MP selfie camera, which Google says are greatly improved over its previous devices.

It costs £599 in the UK and $599 in the US – at least £170 less than the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy S21. The Pixel 6 Pro costs $899.

But the real game changer is what’s inside: Tensor, the first chip designed by Google. The Tensor processor marks a move away from the third-party chips that are commonly used in rival Android devices.

Google said Tensor makes the Pixel 6 phones run 80% faster than the Pixel 5, allowing new AI features. These include real-time language translations, highly accurate voice transcription and high-end camera features like the ability to unblur the face of a person in motion.
