Google unveiled its two new flagship phones for 2021 on Tuesday, October 19, 2021; The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, many of which have long been known, including the design of the device, offer many differences from their predecessors and focus more on video and processing capabilities. One of the highlights of the two models is their new Tensor processor, which hit theaters last August but now has full details, including two powerful Cortex-X1 cores (the first in the industry). Is available) is available.
The chassis of the device is metal and the back of the device Made of frosted and fingerprint resistant glass, which is made of Gorila Glass 6 in Pixel 6 and Gorilla Glass Victus in Pixel 6 Pro. The edges of the back cover are curved in both models, which in addition to better grip, also plays an important role in making the thickness appear less. The color variation of the two models is also different, and while the Pixel 6 is available in three colors: Stormy Black, pink with a red stripe on top of the lens (Kinda Coral) and green with a yellow stripe on the top (Sorta Seafoam), the colors The Pixel 6 Pro is slightly more conservative and comes in a yellow color with an orange border at the top (Sorta Sunny) except for Stormy Black and Cloudy White.
It is thicker than the Pixel 6 Pro and slightly higher, which makes the top edge of the camera narrower in the standard model; This makes it possible to detect the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro at a glance, as the Pro model has a much larger and more visible bezel on top of the cameras.
Other differences in the design of these two phones in Occurred on the top of the device; Where, despite the same form and location of the punch selfie camera, the side edges of the screen in the Pro version are curved and in the normal version are designed to be flat and without curvature. The body of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with IP68 standard is resistant to dust penetration and immersion in water (transparent with specified depth and time).
Dimensions and weight
with dramatic increase in screen size in The new Pixel family, we expect quite a lot more dimensions and weight from this series, which in practice has become somewhat realistic; The Pixel 6 has a length and width of 158.6 and 74.8 mm, respectively, which is a good number for a 6.4-inch, especially in length. The thickness of the phone is 8.9 mm, which is apparently the highest thickness among Google Pixel phones, and it is more than the original Pixel with a thickness of 8.5 mm. The reason for this is to be found in the bulky battery of the phone, which after the Pixel 5a 5G (and of course the Pro version of the same model) has the highest capacity among other Google Pixel phones, and in the weight of 207 grams, the phone has a noticeable effect instead.
In the Pixel 6 Pro, when the screen dimensions reach an unprecedented 6.7 inches, we are faced with a very large sample with dimensions of 8.9 75.9 163.9 mm, the width of which is slightly less than expected due to the curvature of the screen edges. . This phone weighs 210 grams, which should be attributed to the presence of the largest battery of pixel phones to date.
Should be searched in the display section; The Pixel 6 Pro features a 6.7-inch panel with a resolution of 1440p at 19.5: 9 (or 1440 x 3120 pixels), which is built with OLED technology and offers a very high density of 512 pixels per inch. The refresh rate on this screen is upgraded to 120 Hz for the first time on a Google phone, and with the presence of LTPO technology it is automatically set between 10 and 120 Hz (depending on the content being played). This feature, which is not available for all applications on paper, leads to high energy savings. Contrast beyond 1,000,000: 1, support for HDR content display, and Always-on-display are other notable options for this panel. The Pixel 6 Pro display is protected by a Gorilla Glass Victus cover (as the most durable protective glass currently in the Android world).
Full HD: 9: 9), which still offers a high density of 411 pixels per inch, and its manufacturing technology is still OLED. A significant difference of this panel is the absence of LTPO and its 90Hz refresh rate, which is lower in the smooth display of content than the Pro version. The panel still supports one-to-one contrast, HDR content display and Always-on-display, and the Gorilla Glass Victus protective cover is not forgotten.
fingerprint sensor in both These phones are normally in-screen. Selfie camera
The two models use different selfie cameras, both of which do not look great, and there is no autofocus in either. The Pixel 6 is equipped with an 8-megapixel selfie camera with a sensor that uses pixels as small as 1.12 microns, and the front lens, with an aperture of f/2.0, captures a field of view of 84 degrees. The maximum video capture resolution of this camera is 1080/30fps.
Pixel 6 Pro on the other hand is equipped with an 11.1-megapixel selfie camera with a sensor equipped with 1.22 micron pixels with a lens aperture of f/2.2 and a field Records a wider view of 94 degrees. This camera is more successful in the field of video and in addition to the ability to capture 1080p video at both 30 and 60 frames per second, it also supports 4K shooting at 30 frames per second.
Main Camera Both phones are a 50-megapixel model with a 1.1-inch (apparently) Samsung GN1 sensor, whose 1.2-micron pixels increase in size after merging four cells together and forming a larger cell to 2.4 microns at 12-megapixel resolution. The lens aperture in front of this sensor is f/1.85 and has a field of view of 82 degrees. The camera, which achieves a maximum resolution of 4K/60fps in video recording, supports the laser autofocus mechanism (LDAF) and optical image stabilization or OIS can be seen in its specification list.
This camera is a big difference compared to the Pixel 5, which has not changed much in three consecutive generations, and for example, the light absorption in it, according to the manufacturer, has increased by 150%.
A 12-megapixel ultraviolet camera is also common between the two phones, and 1.25 micron pixels, f/2.2 aperture and 114-degree field of view are among the specifications listed for this camera. The ultraviolet camera on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro apparently lacks autofocus.
Google in the software section of these cameras with several capabilities Among other things, we should mention the Magic Eraser, in which it is possible to remove the desired content from the scene by touching the desired subject. This feature can be applied not only to photos taken with new pixels but also to any other photo. Face Unblur is another option for sharpening opaque faces within an image; In this case, the phone automatically detects the blurring of a face, activates the second camera to sharpen it, and by touching the shutter button, two photos with two main and ultraviolet cameras are taken, and then the artificial intelligence of the device, the face is clearly captured with the camera. Replaces the blurred face with the first camera.
Motion Mode uses exactly the same technique leading in the opposite direction; Where after taking a few photos of a scene with the help of machine learning and computational photography, the moving subject is recognized from the background and then, by sharpening the main subject, the background disappears with an attractive motion effect. These features are available in Google Apps and other apps that use the Pixel 6 camera (including Snapchat).
Processor and Memory
One of the most fundamental changes in the Pixel 6 family to the new processing chipset And a different one is called Tensor, of which more complete specifications are now available; The tensor with 5nm lithography built at the highest level uses two high-level cores of Arm Cortex-X1 with a maximum frequency of 2.8 GHz, which is a big difference compared to the Snapdragon 888 and Snapdragon 888 + with only one X1 core. . At the middle level we find two 2.25 GHz cores (apparently of the old Cortex-A76 type) and at the lowest level there are four low level A55 cores (apparently with a maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz).
This set also looks promising in terms of graphics, and its Mali-G78 graphics with 20 processing cores for example compared to Samsung Exynos 2100 with similar graphics but with 14 processing cores occupy a better position. Gives. Choosing the old A76 cores as the middle cores in the Tensor instead of the newer and more advanced A78 cores is a strange conundrum in the processor structure that makes how the new pixels perform in processing tests compared to current market flagships a complex question.
Pixel 6 It uses 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 internal memory, but in the Pixel 6 Pro we get 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of UFS 3.1 internal memory. Naturally, there is no expectation to see the memory slots in these two phones as usual in this family. Battery and Charger
The Pixel 6 uses a bulky battery (by Google standards!) of 4,614 mAh, which the manufacturer claims will last up to 24 hours under defined conditions, and this amount by activating the option Extreme Battery Saver lasts up to 48 hours. Is.
The charger in the box of these two phones is not as expected, but Google's 30-watt wired charger with USB-PD 3.0 support can be provided to charge them separately. According to the manufacturer, this charger charges 50% of the capacity of these two batteries in 30 minutes. The two phones also support Qi-based wireless charging, which is powered by a new 21- to 23-watt pixel wireless charging stand. This stand also naturally does not have a place in the contents box of the device. Communication Options and Tips
The headset jack on these two phones is not as expected, and the wired headset is connected via the USB-C port. The speed standard of this port is USB 3.1 Gen 1, and in this respect, there is no difference between the two phones. Stereo speakers, dual microphones, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, 5G connectivity based on both mmWave and sub-6GHz networks, NFC connectivity, dual-frequency satellite routing, and eSIM support are other options mentioned here.> Price - Time to market
Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with Android 12 operating system with a base price of $ 599 and $ 899, respectively, will be available from October 28 (November 6, 1400).
