Although there hasn’t been a formal launch ceremony for the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, both Android phones are on display in New York City, hinting at Google’s next rivals to Apple’s recently revealed iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro series.
The new retail store is now closed, but anyone may see it at the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro’s backsides.
Although there is no official release date for the Google Pixel 6, the window display does mention that both phones will be available in ‘Fall 2021.’
Google’s flagship smartphones are normally released around October, while the Google Pixel 5 was released in late September.
A two-tone orange Google Pixel 6 is on show, one of three hues available for the smaller phone. Each model has a two-tone color scheme, with a darker hue on top, above the distinctive black camera ring, and a lighter hue on the bottom.
The top and bottom parts of the Google Pixel 6 Pro are painted in a yellow/gold tint. On the Pro model, the top portion of the phone is substantially larger.
Green for the Pixel 6 and silver for the Pixel 6 Pro are the only hues not on show. The black colour scheme will be used for both editions.
Coming up to the camera bar. We got a good look at the strange-looking Google Pixel 6 camera module, which has two lenses on the Pixel 6 and three lenses on the Pixel 6 Pro. If you want more zoom, you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version.
While the Pixel 6 camera specifications are yet to be confirmed, they include a 50MP standard wide camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 48MP telephoto camera that is only available on the Pixel 6 Pro.
The 12MP triple-lens rear cameras on Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro rely on huge sensors and individual pixels, side by side comparison can be done after both phones will be in hand.
The difference between the Google Pixel 6 Pro and the standard Pixel 6 go beyond the additional rear lens of the camera. According to speculations, the Pro will have a larger display, a larger battery, more RAM, and a better front-facing camera.
However what Google will most likely talk about is its own in-house chipset, the Tensor processor, which will be at the core of both phones.
Since 2016, Google has made significant progress with AI-driven computation photography in the Pixel series, and it’s dumping Qualcomm in favour of its own in-house SoC.
Unfortunately, while we were close to getting our hands on these two phones and seeing them in person, the fact that they’re behind glass means we haven’t seen the front. Given the ‘Fall 2021’ delivery timeframe, we shouldn’t have to wait long to get our hands on one.
