Although we are in a period full of advertisements and leaks about smartphones and new technology in general, including the recent announcement of the iPhone 13 and new iPads, and the approaching announcement of the Windows 11 operating system, the Pixel 6 phone took its share of attention, and may even be the first phone One of the Pixel phones that reaches this level of popularity and grabs the attention of consumers before the official announcement.
It seems that Google aspires through the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro to change everything we know about the Pixel phones previously. While there are still some specifications and information that we do not know about the two phones, what has been confirmed by the company itself and some popular rumors and leaks suggest that the Pixel 6 will not be a normal phone at all.
And while we’re weeks, maybe days away from the official announcement, we have enough information about the new Google pioneer that we’d like to share with you in this article.
Pixel 6 and 6 Pro specifications
The official specifications of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phones have already been leaked, and as expected, they are specifications for a flagship phone that Google relies on to be its fierce warrior in the smartphone struggle. Both phones come with the Google “Tensor” processor, which we will talk about, in addition to support for 5G networks and Wi-Fi 6E.

All-new Tensor processor
Google highlighted its new processor called “Tensor”, which will work on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which means that the company is going the same way as Apple, Samsung and Huawei to adopt its own processor and move away from Qualcomm chipsets. This step may lead to a revolutionary change in Google phones, especially since we are talking about a comprehensive development in artificial intelligence and that the new processor will greatly improve speech recognition features and imaging algorithms.
We do not yet know the source of this processor, not even the name of the company that manufactures it for Google, but many rumors indicate that Samsung is manufacturing it. Also, we have not yet obtained any confirmed information or specifications about the new processor.
One of the outstanding features of the Tensor processor is the capabilities of artificial intelligence and machine learning, which will be relied on in the new camera system to process photos and videos on both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phones.
Bi-color design with camera strap
The design of the new Pixel devices does not look familiar, as Google is working on a bold design for the Pixel 6 series, far from the designs of the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy S21 as the first competitors to the phone.
The design can be considered the most noticeable in the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phones, as both Pixel phones feature a large black rectangular camera bar on the top of the phone’s background, which is reminiscent of the Nexus 6P phone, along with a vibrant two-tone design. The phone comes in different colors as shown in the pictures.
Speaking of the screen, the Pixel 6 comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ (2400 x 1080) screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, while its bigger brother 6 Pro comes with a 6.7-inch QHD+ screen (3200 x 1440 pixels) with 120Hz refresh.
The fingerprint scanner does not appear behind the phone, which means that you can finally get an under-screen fingerprint, a feature that goes along with most of the new mid-range and flagship devices that competitors have introduced for a while.
Google Pixel 6 phone price
According to Yogesh Brar, the leaker on Twitter, the price of the Pixel 6 may start at $ 749, which is a lot of money but still cheaper than the iPhone 13, which was $ 799. For the larger version of the phone, the Pixel 6 Pro may be priced at $1,099.
Pixel 6 phone price
Another rumor related to Europe indicates that the Pixel 6 will cost 649 euros, and the price of the larger 6 Pro is supposed to be 899 euros. And if these rumors are true, it means that the Pixel 6 phone will cost only 20 euros from its predecessor, the Pixel 5, which is amazing given the huge amount of new features that Google is bringing in its new Pixel 6 phone, which is clearly different from its previous version.
The date of the official announcement
Google usually unveils its new Pixel series phone in the latter half of each year, in October. Although the Pixel 5 was announced on September 30 due to circumstances that may be related to the Corona crisis, Google will follow a predictable pattern this year.
It seems, then, that the rule for the date of the announcement will not change, as many leaks indicated that the date of the official announcement of the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phone will be on the 19th of this month (October) within the “Made by Google” event, which is the same date that appears on Phone lock screens in the last photo published from the “MadeByGoogle” page on Instagram, which was to promote Pixel 6 phones in the manner of the latest album of Canadian artist Drake, and the same date that an advertisement issued by an Australian telecom company hinted at encouraging its users to register for news of the upcoming Google phone. before October 19.
