So are Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google's new smartphones with their own processor

Tech giant Google isn't far behind in the smartphone battle and has launched two new models to compete with the big ones in the market. A few weeks before its official unveiling, the company itself has unveiled the main features of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

These will be the company's first smartphones equipped with a self-made chip specifically designed to fully exploit the possibilities of artificial intelligence (AI), especially for photography and speech recognition. In addition, they present a completely new design.

Tensor, the protagonist of the Pixel

The new self-made chip, christened Tensor, has been designed specifically for the new Pixel, which will allow Google to harmonize hardware and software, just like Samsung, Huawei or Apple do.
The development of Tensor, which took Google engineers four years of work, aimed to harness the potential of artificial intelligence.

Unmatched images

The simplest version, the Google Pixel 6, has two rear cameras, while the Pro version has a triple camera with the main sensor, one of them with 4x optical zoom.
However, what will revolutionize these devices is the Tensorchip, which uses machine learning techniques and artificial intelligence to improve the image taken and deliver an improved result in a matter of milliseconds.
The final image will be a mixture of what is obtained by all the cameras, a technique known as computational photography. The wide-angle is used to mark the definition, while the main camera is used to correct the colors.
"What the Tensor microprocessor allows us to do is to push the limits of computing that we were encountering both with the hardware of other vendors and in our previous Pixels," says Rick Osterloh, Google's vice president for devices and services. cited by El Tiempo.
The chip also helps correct blurry photographs and always prioritizes human faces when making a decision on which aspects to improve.

Speech recognition

Tensor also brings great advances in terms of voice recognition, a process that with the new phones will be carried out within the same device, without the need for the internet.
When playing a video on the new Pixel, the option to include subtitles and translate them into another language in real-time appears.

New screens

The Pixel 6 will be equipped with a 6.4-inch OLED display with a 90 Hz refresh and a Full HD resolution. Meanwhile, the Pixel 6 Pro will have a 6.7-inch diagonal, 120 Hz of a refresh, and a Quad HD+ resolution. Both will have a fingerprint reader underneath.
At the moment, it is unknown the price that both smartphones will have on the market.
