The Google Pixel 6XL and Pixel 6 Pro: the real Google flagships with its own chip and the first Android with five years of updates.

The Pixel 6 is the umpteenth attempt by Google to beat the iPhone and this time is serious (really)

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are finally here. These are the true Google flagships in several years that not only release their first own chip but also present a completely renewed camera and raise the stakes level software and updates.

As usual, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have identical important aspects, such as the power of the hand of the Tensioner chip and the main and ultra-wide angle cameras but leave some details as exclusive to the larger model, the main one the presence of a third telephoto sensor.

In an ad that we could consider as a teaser, Google has shown the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Both models will be released in the fall, but those at Mountain View have decided to show a snack of what they will bring.

Its main novelty, judging by the statement, is the Google Tensor as the first own processor in one of its phones.

Rick Osterloh, head of Google hardware, sat down with The Verge to talk about the new Pixel 6.

And from the conversation it follows that this time they aspire to compete with the premium range of smartphones.

This translates to Samsung and Apple, although from the demos we know that they refer to the iPhone.

Google wants to compete with the iPhone one-on-one after more than eleven years since the launch of Nexus and fifteen generations of smartphones later. For real this time. The good stuff.

New Tensor chip in the Google Pixel 6XL

The display of both models is one of the differences from previous models.

The Pixel 6 Pro will display a 6.7-inch QHD+ display and 120Hz refresh, while the Pixel 6 will display a 6.4-inch FHD+ display and 90Hz refresh.

Three camera sensors complete the proposal, with the four-magnification folded telephoto lens as exclusive to the upper model.

But what has really highlighted Google of this generation in this advance of the Pixel 6, has been its Tensor chip.

It is a SoC, a system on a chip that houses more than just a processor.

Apple style, it includes several components in one place to be more efficient.

Will Google Pixel 6XL beat the iPhone?

In the case of the Tensor of the next Pixel 6, it will incorporate a TPU for artificial intelligence operations, a Titan M2 chip for security, CPU, GPU and 5G modem. Of these last three, Google has not given more information.

The highlight is that TPU, an evolution of the processor that presented in 2016 to make the great leap to Machine Learning on its servers but designed for mobile.

Transferred to daily use, the Tensioner chip will have several practical applications. In one of them, photography of moving lenses is improved. In another, the quality of video taken in tricky situations is improved, an aspect that was traditionally the weak point of Pixels.

The rest are related to real-time language translation and almost instant dictation. These functions are performed on the device without using the cloud.

Osterloh makes it clear that both models will fight in the premium range of smartphones. In other words, its price will be around $ 1,000, the barrier that Samsung and Apple crossed with their phones years ago. However, the history of Google smartphones does not invite optimism.

Over the years, Google has unveiled up to fifteen generations of smartphones. Since the Nexus One landed in 2010, the search engine company has been launching model after model, sometimes several a year, up to a total of eight. The Nexus were buried in 2015, so that in 2016 there would be room for the seven Pixel models we have seen so far.

The drop in sales of the Pixel, as well as its narrow market share of around 2% in North America (its domestic market) does not invite optimism either. Incorporating a new processor, raising the price, and aiming for consumers to identify it as a premium terminal ignores several points.

Among them, a poor distribution that suffers not only from a lack of key markets, but also from presence in retailers and telephone stores. A lame ecosystem and a poorly consolidated proposal round off the problems of a range whose unanimously positive reviews in the technology media have failed to remedy.
