After much anticipation Google is finally launching its two smartphones – the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro. Last year Google’s flagship offering was Pixel 5, so far it was only a mid-range smartphone when put up against other brand’s best smartphones.
It had a comparatively under-powerful chipset and adopted design from the cheaper Pixel 4a. However, this time the tech giant isn’t holding back anymore. The company brings the new custom Tensor System on a Chip (SoC) which is really exciting. So, let us take you through the key specifications, features, price in Nepal and availability of Google Pixel 6 in Nepal.
Google Pixel 6 Overview
Display and Design
The Google Pixel 6 flaunts a 6.4” AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. It has a huge camera bar that runs throughout the width of the phone. There are just two cameras on the rear side.
The Pixel 5 was remarkable for using an aluminum chassis, while smartly incorporating bio-resin plastic that allows the phone to support wireless charging. It is expected that Pixel 6 will also pick the same design element.
Chunky camera arrays seem pretty much in vogue these days and Google doesn’t seem like getting away from it any soon. However, it is finally getting rid out of the 12.2MP Sony IMX363 lens for these newbies. This sensor has been spotted since 2018 from the launch of the Pixel 3 series.
For security, Pixel 6 conceals a fingerprint sensor underneath, and Pixel’s trademark rear scanner is removed.
Performance and Memory
It will ship with Google customized Tensor SoC. Tensor is the chipset designed explicitly for Google devices. The smartphone will ship with Android 12, as is tradition. According to Prosser, Pixel 6 is also up-and-coming with at least five years of software updates, which is great news for Pixel owners.
The RAM will be 8GB, while there will be two variations for storage – 128GB and 256GB.
The phone retains the primary and ultrawide camera but skips the telephoto lens. It has dual cameras on the rear side – 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide units. And for selfies and video chats, the smartphone come with an 8MP front Camera.
Battery and Extras
