As planned, Google has unveiled its flagship Pixel 6 Pro smartphone based on its proprietary Tensor mobile processor, made using 5nm technology.


Google claims an 80 percent performance boost for the Tensor chip (compared to what?). The new single chip system has a tri-cluster structure with two 2.8 GHz Cortex-X1 cores simultaneously. There are two more 2.25GHz cores and an energy efficient 1.8GHz quartet. The Mali-G78 is responsible for graphics and the Tensor Processing Unit is responsible for artificial intelligence tasks.

The front side of the Google Pixel 6 Pro features a 6.7" AMOLED WQHD+ display with 10-120Hz refresh rate. A fingerprint scanner is integrated into the screen.

The capacity of the battery in the novelty was 5000 mAh. The smartphone supports 30-watt wired charging and 23-watt wireless charging. Also note Gorilla Glass Victus, NFC, IP68 water protection, stereo speakers and the Android 12 operating system out of the box. The company promises four OS updates and security patches over five years.


For centuries, cameras have been a staple of Pixel series smartphones. The sixth generation was no exception. The Pixel 6 Pro features a system of three modules: a 50 MP main (Samsung GN1, f/1.79), a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle and a 48 MP telephoto (Sony IMX586) with 4x optical zoom. The optical-digital zoom is 20x. The front camera has a resolution of 11.1 MP.

Video can be shot in 4K UHD at 60 FPS on the standard camera. The other modules support 4K at 30 FPS. One of the innovations was the Magic Eraser function, which allows you to remove unwanted objects in the photo in one touch. For example, passers-by in the frame. Moreover, you do not need to connect to the network. Of course, it has modes of astrophotography, night photography, etc.

Prices and availability

The price of Google Pixel 6 Pro starts from $ 899 in the U.S. and from € 898 in Europe. The novelty is available in modifications with 128 GB and 256 GB of user memory. The RAM capacity is 12GB regardless of the bundle. The smartphone will be offered in colors Sorta Sunny, Cloudy White and Stormy Black.
