The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are a pair of Android smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Google as part of the Google Pixel product line. They collectively serve as the successor to the Pixel 5. They were officially announced on October 19, 2021, at the "Pixel Fall Launch" event and were released in nine countries on October 28.

History

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were previewed by Google on August 2, 2021, which confirmed the phones' new designs and the introduction of its custom Tensor system on a chip (SoC).[9][10] Previous Pixel devices had used chips from Qualcomm, with Google having begun developing its own chips (codenamed Whitechapel) in as early as 2016.[11][12][13] The chip is named after both Google's TensorFlow and Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) technologies.[4] Despite being marketed as developed by Google, close-up examinations reveal that the chip contains numerous similarities with Samsung's Exynos series.[14][15] A successor to the chip was reported to be in development by October 2021, believed to be for the Pixel 7.[16]

Google kickstarted the phones' marketing campaign early, beginning with online videos,[17][18] billboards in major cities,[19][20] and magazine advertisements.[21] Additionally, the company partnered with Channel 4,[22] the NBA,[23] and Snapchat to promote the phones.[24] Furthermore, models of the phones were available on display at the Google Store Chelsea in New York City prior to the launch event.[25][26]

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were officially announced on October 19, 2021, at the "Pixel Fall Launch" event,[27] and became available in nine countries on October 28.[28][29] The phones were not made available in India at launch due to supply chain issues.[30] Google also announced the official phone cases for the phones as well as the second-generation Pixel Stand wireless charger at the event, with the former going on sale on the same day with three color options per phone and the latter going on sale on November 18.[31][32] Pre-orders for the phones began on the same day as the announcement,[33] with shipping commencing on October 25.[34] The Google Store did not offer any discounts for the devices on Black Friday, a departure from prior years.[35]

Specifications

Design

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro both feature a unique new design that is visually distinct from previous-generation Pixel phones, including a large camera bar and two-tone color scheme on the back.[36] The front of both phones also feature a centered hole-punch display notch.[9] They are each available in three colors:[37]

Hardware

The Pixel 6 has a 6.4 in (160 mm) FHD+ 1080p OLED display at 411 ppi with a 1080 × 2400 pixel resolution and a 20:9 ratio,[7] while the Pixel 6 Pro has a 6.7 in (170 mm) QHD+ 1440p LTPO OLED display at 512 ppi with a 1440 × 3120 pixel resolution and a 19.5:9 ratio.[8] Both displays have HDR10+ support; the Pixel 6 has a 90 Hz refresh rate and the Pixel 6 Pro has a 120 Hz variable refresh rate. Both phones contain a 50 megapixel wide rear camera and a 12 megapixel ultrawide rear camera, with the Pixel 6 Pro featuring an additional 48 megapixel telephoto rear camera. The front camera on the Pixel 6 contains an 8 megapixel wide lens, while the one on the Pixel 6 Pro contains a 11.1 megapixel ultrawide lens.[38] The new Tensor chip also brought Live HDR+ to video as well as enhancements to the Night Sight and Super Res Zoom features on the devices.[39]

The Pixel 6 has a 4614 mAh battery, while the Pixel 6 Pro has a 5003 mAh battery. Both phones support fast charging, Qi wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless charging.[7][8] The Pixel 6 is available in 128 or 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM, and the Pixel 6 Pro is available in 128, 256, or 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM. In addition to the ARM-based Tensor chip, both phones are also equipped with the Titan M2 security module, which is based on the RISC-V open standard, along with an under-display fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, and Gorilla Glass Victus.[40][41]

Software

As with prior generations of the Pixel phone, Google placed heavy emphasis on artificial intelligence and ambient computing capabilities during the Pixel Fall Launch event, debuting features such as Magic Eraser, Face Unblur, Motion Mode, Real Tone, Direct My Call, Wait Times, and Live Translate.[42][38][43] Additionally, Assistant voice typing and grammar correction serve as exclusive features on the Pixel 6 series.[44][45] Material You, a more personalized variant of Google's Material Design design language, was also a major focus in Google's marketing efforts.[46]

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro shipped with Android 12 and version 8.4 of the Google Camera app at launch.[47][48] It will at least receive three years of major OS upgrades with support extending to 2024, and at least five years of security updates with support extending to 2026.[47] The Pixel Fall Launch event coincided with the release of Android 12 for older Pixel phones, along with the introduction of the Security Sub and Privacy Dashboard.[49][50] Google also announced Pixel Pass, a subscription bundle similar to Apple One and Xbox All Access which bundles the Pixel 6 series with Google One, YouTube Premium, YouTube Music Premium, Google Play Pass, and extended warranty.[51]

Reception

Critical reception

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro received much attention prior to its launch, with many commentators highlighting the potential of its Tensor chip and the debut of Android 12, opining it to be "more exciting" than Apple's iPhone 13.[52][53][54] Commentators also noted the increased anticipation of the Pixel in comparison to earlier generations of the Pixel smartphone line, attributing this to Google's premature reveal of the device and the announcement of the Tensor chip.[55][56][57]

Both phones received generally positive reviews following its release. Its camera capabilities, unique design, and performance of the Tensor chip were widely praised,[58][59][60][61] though the speed of the fingerprint reader and exclusion of the phone charger were criticized.[62][63][64] Critics also highlighted the phones' premium specifications and affordable pricing,[65][66][67][68] while the battery life and protrusion of the camera bar received mixed reactions.[59][69][70][71]

Commercial reception

Google accommodated the increased interest for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro by signing partnership agreements with more than 45 wireless carriers as well as retailers across nine countries.[72] The company will also reportedly double the production of its phones compared to last year in attempt to boost its market share, manufacturing approximately 7 million devices.[73] Shortly after the phones became available for pre-order, both the online Google Store and the Google Fi store suffered temporary outages.[74] Google also attributed delayed shipping times for the Pro model to unexpectedly high demand on the Google Store,[75][76] with other carriers also facing shipping delays.[77]

Software issues

  • In October 2021, some early buyers reported that their phone screens exhibited a "display flicker" bug when pressing the power button with the phone turned off.[78] The issue will be fixed by a software patch in December.[79]
  • In November 2021, some users reported that the fingerprint scanner would stop working when they change the phone's animation speed or the phone drains its battery.[80][81] Additionally, some units could be unlocked by fingerprints not registered on the device,[82] while Google attributed the perceived slow speed of the scanner to security reasons.[83] An update was rolled out later that month addressing some of the issues.[84]
  • In November 2021, reports circulated that the Google Assistant was randomly placing calls to individuals in some users' contacts list.[85] The issue was fixed shortly afterward.[86][87]
  • In November 2021, a bug in the Google Photos app caused the Magic Eraser feature to disappear from some devices, with Google working on a fix.[88]
