Karlston posted a news in Mobile NewsGoogle has announced that its upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will feature a custom-built System on a Chip (SoC) called Tensor. The rationale behind Tensor is that existing hardware limits Google’s ability to maximise the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML); with Tensor it’s able to overcome these issues. Over the last few years, Google has been going in heavy on AI. With the new Tensor chip, Google says Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro users will gain new features and improvements in translation, captioning, and dictation that presumably won’t be available on other devices, it also helps the device run more smoothly in general. It will also offer users better security with a new security core and the Titan M2 chip – the search giant says these features will mean the new devices have the most layers of hardware security compared to any other phone. Aside from announcing the new Tensor SoC, Google took some time to address the camera hump that’s present on the upcoming devices. It said that the improved sensors and lenses are simply too big to fit into a traditional square so it has had to introduce a new design which it calls the camera bar. In a thread on Twitter, the firm said the Pixel 6 Pro has three cameras including a telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom, while the Pixel 6 has the same cameras minus the telephoto lens. Users will be able to pick up the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in three colour combinations and they both use new materials and finishes including a light polished aluminum frame and a matte aluminum finish. Google hasn’t shared any pricing information with us, or when it will go on sale but prospective buyers should expect it to be available around October.

Karlston posted a topic in Mobile NewsGoogle Pixel 6 leak shows off distinctive new design Besides the all-new Google "Whitechapel" SoC, it's reportedly getting a new design. Renders of the Pixel 6. Get a load of that camera bar. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. The Pixel 6 promises to be a landmark device for Google, as it is expected to mark the debut of the Google-developed "Whitechapel" system on a chip instead of the Qualcomm chips the search giant has shipped in all of its previous devices. To go along with the revamped insides, it appears the outside is seeing some major design changes, too—if the newest leak is to be believed. Our first look at the Pixel 6 design comes from YouTuber Jon Prosser. Prosser claims he was sent live, hands-on images of the device, and while he isn't sharing the actual images, he teamed up with a render artist to depict the device based on those images. Prosser's track record with Google leaks is not the greatest. Just last month, he claimed the Pixel 5a was "canceled," but that assertion was publicly shot down by Google. This leak has a bit more believability to it, as it was also backed up by Android Police's Max Weinbach, though Weinbach says the colors aren't accurate. The most striking thing about the design is the back, which now features a big horizontal camera bump that stretches edge to edge across the phone. It's definitely distinctive. The renders show two sizes, which Prosser says will be called the "Pixel 6" and "Pixel 6 Pro." Previously, Google named the bigger phone "XL," but the Pixel line, which has always been about chasing Apple, naturally had to align with Apple's naming scheme. Prosser doesn't have exact specs, but the Pro model has three rear cameras and the base model has two. Google is reportedly teaming up with Samsung to build the Pixel 6's Whitechapel SoC, and maybe that's why the front of the Pixel 6 looks kind of Samsung-y. The Pixel 5 had shallow corners, while the Pixel 6 has sharper display corners, making it look more like a Galaxy Note. The Pixel 5 had a hole punch off to the left side, while the Pixel 6, like a modern Samsung phone, puts it in the center. Prosser also said that "the glass curves around the edges a bit," which would also make it more like a Samsung phone, as the Pixel 5 display was flat. Another change is the addition of an in-screen fingerprint reader; Google has previously gone with a rear capacitive reader. Nobody knows the specs of the phone yet, and unlike with most flagships, there is actually the potential for variance here since the Pixel 5 was a mid-range phone with a Snapdragon 765G SoC. Is this still a mid-range phone? Will Google's SoC make any noise from a performance standpoint, or is it just a play for more control over the SoC kernel and a longer window for software updates? We still have a ton of unanswered questions about this phone, but fortunately for us, Google's hardware team is not great at keeping secrets.
