Google Pixel 6: the right compromise
This year, the Mountain View firm is launching two premium smartphones and the Google Pixel 6 represents the right compromise for anyone who wants to take excellent photos for a budget of less than 700 euros. The latter is equipped with a dual camera with a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor on one side and a 12-megapixel (114 °) ultra-wide-angle sensor on the other. This composition promises to do feats knowing Google's algorithms, especially since it will be aided by a laser autofocus sensor, a spectral flicker sensor and optical image stabilization. For selfies, there is an 8 megapixel sensor.
The design has also changed a lot compared to the Pixel 5 last year, evidenced by the huge strip crossing the back from left to right which houses the various photo sensors. Beyond the aesthetic, this will allow the Pixel 6 to be stable when placed on a table. The bubble in the screen is no longer in the left corner, but centered at the top. And speaking of the screen, it has grown compared to the previous model, this time reaching 6,4 inches to definitely ditch the compact aspect. Too bad, but the panel promises to be of good quality, since AMOLED in Full HD + at 90 Hz. The fingerprint sensor is housed just below.
Finally, it is especially at the level of performance that the new high-end smartphone from Google will stand out from the competition, since it has the particularity of integrating a brand new in-house processor: the Google Tensor. If we can not yet really judge its power, the brand promises to focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning. The chip should also speed up the photo experience, but also voice commands (Google Assistant), translation (Google Translate), etc. And compatibility with the 5G network is obviously part of it. As far as autonomy is concerned, the Pixel 6 expects more than a day of endurance at ease with its 4 mAh battery and a 614 W fast charge, taking the phone from 30 to 0% in 50 minutes.

Google Pixel 6 Pro: the behemoth
The second premium smartphone is therefore the Google Pixel 6 Pro, and not XL, because it is true that this change of name does not only increase the dimensions of the phone. So yes, the screen diagonal goes to 6,7 inches, but the panel promises an even stronger visual immersion with its curved edges, its QHD + definition and its refresh rate climbing to 120 Hz. The latter benefits from the LTPO technology to adapt the display frequency up to 10 Hz depending on usage, and therefore save battery.
For the photo, it goes even further than the classic version of the Pixel 6 by simply adding an additional sensor, namely a 48 megapixel telephoto lens which can display an optical zoom x4. Optical image stabilization is also part of this sensor. In addition, the selfie camera is upgraded to 11,1 megapixels and thus offer to shoot in 4K at 30 frames per second - which is quite rare for a front sensor. As you will have understood, versatility is essential with this Pro version.
However, the differences do not end there, since the Pixel 6 Pro offers 12 GB of RAM while the classic Pixel 6 only embeds 8 GB. The Google Tensor chip is still in the game and this gain in RAM should allow performance to be boosted while improving the fluidity of the experience. The battery capacity is also increased to 5 mAh in order to gain autonomy.
