Typically we see a little more fanfare when someone launches a new smartphone, but Google went with the relatively low-key route of just putting their new Pixel 6 up on the company store and calling it a day.
Of course, this is the company’s top-of-the-line product so there are more than a few people out there eagerly awaiting it. Yet the relative silence from Google themselves either underlines the iterative nature of these events, let alone the products, or the Pixel 6 is such a small part in the overall machine that company is that the launch isn’t really a red-letter day for it.
Either way, we don’t care because we’re pretty excited about the Pixel 6, a device we’ve read various rumors about for months now.
To start, it isn’t available for sale yet. That’s expected to come later this fall. In fact, you can sign up to be notified when the launch happens so you can snag your own. Check it out at this link right here.
One of the biggest highlights of the new Pixel 6 is the company’s in-house Tensor chip. Designed by Google specifically for their Pixel line of smartphones, we’re eager to see how it stacks up to Apple’s own chips as well as some of the competition out there.
And that’s really all we got as far as in hard details outside of what the device will look like. Even so, the camera arrangement, in particular, is drawing attention. Unlike most camera bumps on smartphones, which tend to be square, Google has opted for a body-length camera strip on the Pixel 6 smartphones. The difference between the 6 and 6 Pro in this regard is that the latter has three cameras as opposed to the former’s two.
