According to Google, “The team that designed our silicon wanted to make Pixel even more capable. For example, with Tensor we thought about every piece of the chip and customized it to run Google’s computational photography models. For users, this means entirely new features, plus improvements to existing ones.”
The company adds, “You’ll see this in everything from the completely revamped camera system to speech recognition and much more. So whether you’re trying to capture that family photo when your kids won’t stand still, or communicate with a relative in another language, Pixel will be there — and it will be more helpful than ever.”
In addition to confirming the Tensor chipset, Google also confirms that there will be both a Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. They have also confirmed the design of the phone, which is what we’ve seen in previous leaks. While the company does not dive into details, they note that the rear-facing cameras have been given an upgrade with new sensors and lenses that are too big to fit into a traditional square, which is why they have chosen this particular design.
The company is expected to make the full announcement with all the details this coming fall, so check back with us then if you’d like to learn more.
