Google Pixel 6 Pro Design
The Google Pixel 6 Pro’s most noticeable design feature is the horizontal camera strip on the back of the phone, which takes up a large portion of the rear. This element is an acquired taste, and it’s likely to divide opinions. However, it gives the phone a unique look that will turn heads. The phone is larger than most devices, so if you’re looking for a smaller device, you may want to consider the standard Google Pixel 6. The phone’s rear is made of glass, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus technology, ensuring it’s not easily scratched. The phone is also IP68 water and dust-resistant, which means it can survive the occasional dip in the water. The phone’s curved edges make it comfortable to hold but can be slippery. A case can mitigate this issue. The Pixel 6 Pro is available in three colors: Sorta Sunny (yellow and gold), Cloudy White (white and gray), and Stormy Black (black and gray).
The Pixel 6 Pro has a 6.7-inch QHD+ display, which is larger than most phones and offers crisp picture quality. The resolution of 1440 x 3120 significantly improved over the Pixel 5’s 1080 x 2340 screen. The display’s 512 pixels per inch is a rarity on smartphones with QHD displays, and it’s only beaten by handsets like the Sony Xperia 1 IV with its 4K screen. The screen can have impressive brightness levels, and we didn’t struggle to see the phone’s screen in bright sunlight. The display has a 120Hz refresh rate, which refreshes the picture on the screen twice as quickly as on phones with a standard 60Hz screen, creating a smoother experience when gaming or scrolling through social media feeds. The feature isn’t necessary for everyone, but it complements the impressive display quality, and users will notice a difference if they’re swapping from a phone with a 60Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 6 Pro’s in-screen fingerprint scanner is positioned well but is a little difficult to use.
Chipset and Software
The Pixel 6 Pro features the Google Tensor SoC, which is the company’s first smartphone processor. The SoC is specifically designed for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, optimizing it for Google’s software. The SoC features two ARM Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores. The phone runs on Android 12, which is Google’s latest operating system version. Android 12 is more intuitive and user-friendly than previous versions. The phone is also optimized for Google’s software, making it faster and more responsive than other devices.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro is the latest flagship phone from Google, and one of the key features that set it apart from other smartphones is its impressive camera system.
