While waiting for their official presentation this fall, Google has lifted the veil on the design and some of the innovations of its new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. On the menu, a radically different style, an in-house Tensor system on a chip and a resolutely top-of-the-range positioning.
Google is preparing a comeback in the niche of which will be revealed this . After a well-made Pixel 5 but lacking the sense of innovation and the finery of a premium smartphone, its successor has greater ambitions. Completely redesigned design, muscular photo module and above all, for the first time, a SOC ( ) Tensor developed by . Many of the rumors and renders that have been circulating for weeks about the Pixel 6 have been proven to be correct.High-end Android and would like to let it be known. The Californian giant has just organized a hype around the

The Pixel 6 takes the photo configuration of the 6 Pro, minus the telephoto lens.
Both smartphoneswill have in common the SoC Tensor, one of the great novelties that raises a lot of questions. Based on an Arm architecture, this processor will optimize artificial intelligence functions, with Google promising a “transformed experience” by of and voice recognition.
Google was already using its own chips for processing photography (Pixel Visual Core), for artificial intelligence (Pixel Neural Core) and for security (Titan-M). The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be the first smartphones to use a Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) asinstead of a Qualcomm chip. Google has opted for the strategy of a closer optimization between the hardware and software part of its by ensuring mastery of these two areas. An orientation that is closer to what does for a few years now with its .
There are still many aspects to discover about the capabilities and performance of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. But in any case it seems clear thatwanted to give itself the means to catch up with the peloton of high-end smartphones in an attempt to find a place alongside , and others . Will he finally succeed this time around? Answer in the fall …
