Google’s own processor makes the difference

Google Pixel 6

When Google confirmed that it had developed its own processor for the Pixel 6, the question was clear: will it live up to the Snapdragon 888, SoC flagged for 2021 on Android? It is still too early to know the answer since it would be necessary to physically test a Pixel 6, but there is no doubt that mobiles point ways.

The best high-end mobiles of 2021

The so-called Google Tensor powers both devices by offering high performance, 5G connectivity and high-quality 3D graphics, always according to the data shown by Google. In addition, mobiles incorporate RAM memory and enough storage for most needs: the Pixel 6 offers 8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of internal space; Google Pixel 6 Pro raises RAM to 12 GB with 128, 256 and 512 GB storage.

The front is used to a great extent by keeping space for some rather conspicuous frames. Top centered hole for the front camera and an AMOLED screen with LTPO technology that offers a high refresh rate: 90 Hz on pixel 6 and 120 Hz on Pixel 6 Pro. The diagonal also varies: 6.4 inches on the smallest and 6.71 inches on the Pro.
