Google Play Store: How to update on an Android device
This year promises to be a little different for the popular Pixel range. That’s because Google has already teased a number of key details about its forthcoming flagship phones.
We’ve already seen official renders for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which boast a sleek new design with a striking rear camera pump. While we also know about the devices’ specs, with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro being the first Google smartphones to be powered by the Mountain View firm’s custom-made Tensor chip.
This is Google’s answer to Apple’s A Bionic chip series, and is expected to bring with it big AI and machine learning benefits that could impact all aspects of the new Pixel phone’s operations.
The premium look and feel of the Pixel 6 range is also the anthesis to the Pixel 5, a phone that launched last year and was dubbed a phone designed for an “economic downturn”. So, expect things to be a little pricier this time around, as Google aims to compete directly with the likes of Apple and Samsung, which both sell smartphones for four-figure sums.
