Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro: New design, brand new chipset
The Pixel 6 lineup will get a new look this year. Although Google has implemented a basic design over the previous iteration, the 2021 Pixel series will receive a significant upgrade. The tech giant has already spread the beans on the Pixel 6, 6 Pro cosmetic changes. The teaser shared on social media confirmed the leaked renders shared by Tipstar John Prosser a few months ago. The Pixel 6 range will have a long form factor, smooth profile and horizontal rear camera modules across the entire phone. The module divides the back panel into two sections with different color accents. The regular model will get pastel shades of green, red and black, and the protie will have a ‘metallic color’ of black, gold and gray.
Moving on to the internal hardware, the 2021 Pixel series will equip Google’s first in-house tensor chipset. An earlier report had said that the so-called GS101 chips would have “three cluster setups, including a TPU (tensor processing unit)” for machine learning applications. Google cites that the new processor will bring significant improvements in speech recognition and photography (via CNET). It is said to have “data-center-level” speech recognition. The new Google Chip can be paired with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of storage.

Google Pixel phones are best known for their camera capabilities, and this year will be no different.

According to reports, the UWB hardware is supplied by the American semiconductor company Qorvo.
The Pixel 6 Pro will also feature a reverse wireless charging feature called ‘Battery Share’.
