Pixel 6 vs. Pixel 6 Pro: Google’s flagship phones compared

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were revealed by Google in October — and as expected they come loaded with welcome upgrades (like Google’s new Tensor chips) that could potentially usher in the tipping of fortunes for the company’s struggling phone division.

With the Pixel 6 lineup, Google seems to have course-corrected from the Pixel 5, which marked a departure from the pricey Pixel phones of years past.

At the heart of the Pixel 6 series is that aforementioned Tensor system-on-a-chip. Tensor promises up to 48 hours of battery life, better “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,” according to a report by CNET’s Shara Tibken. This marks the first time the company has built its phones without a Qualcomm chipset, endeavoring instead to build its own in-house. And because Google created Tensor, it’s extending security and OS support to Pixel owners to five years…Read more>>
