The screen gets its protection from Corning Gorilla Glass Victus at the front and the back has Gorilla Glass 6. This setup is embedded in an aluminum frame. Further, it has the 1080×2400-pixel capacity and the PPI density remains 441.
Google Pixel 6 weighs 207 grams and the dimension is 158.6×74.8×8.9mm. The device is also IP68 certified for dust or water resistivity. Google claims that it can resist up to 1.5m of water for 30 minutes. There are three color options available for the handset – Sorta Seafoam, Kinda Coral, and Stormy Black. The frame, however, is matte textured.
Performance and Memory
The new Pixel phone comes with Google Tensor System on a Chip (SoC) based on a 5nm manufacturing process. This has been the major highlight of this phone. It integrates an octa-core CPU which divides with two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at the speed of 2.80GHz, 2.25GHz, and 1.80GHz respectively. Likewise, the graphics depart is handled by Arm’s Mali-G78 MP20.
As per memory, there are three configurations –8/128GB, 12/128GB, and 8/256GB. The memory is of UFS 3.1 and can not be expanded with a microSD card slot or anything. On the software front, it comes with Android 12 out-of-the-box.
Camera and Sound
Moving on to optics, there is a dual-camera setup at the back of the Google Pixel 6. There is a 50MP primary sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and 1.2-microns pixel capacity. It supports omnidirectional PDAF, Laser AF, and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Completing the setup is a 12MP ultrawide lens with a 114-degrees field of view. It has 1.25 microns of pixel capacity. The phone also features a Dual-LED flash while the cameras have the Pixel Shift, Auto-HDR, and panorama mode. The video support is up to 4K resolution with 30/60 frames per second. The video mode also has gyro-EIS and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
Upfront, there is an 8MP selfie snapper with f/2.0 aperture and 1.12 microns pixel capacity. However, it can only shoot 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. Further, there is a loudspeaker integrating stereo speakers. Unfortunately, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Rest of the Specs
Fueling the device is a medium Li-Po 4,614mAh battery cell with a 30W fast charging capacity. It also supports 21W fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. Moreover, there is a USB Power Delivery 3.0 while the charging is done via USB Type-C 3.1. Likewise, there is an optical under-display fingerprint sensor for biometrics which also includes a software-based face unlock system.
Other sensors are an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and barometer. For connectivity, there is Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS (dual-band A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS, BDS), and NFC.
