The design of the Google Pixel 6 series smartphones
Firstly, the Google Pixel 6 series consist out of two smartphones and they are the following:
- Google Pixel 6
- Google Pixel 6 Pro
It is the first time that Google is introducing a Pro version of their Pixel smartphones series. Plus the Google Pixel 6 Pro is known for being its flagship smartphone. Now let us continue further with their designs.
A) Google Pixel 6:
As you can see in the illustration above, the Google Pixel 6 has a unique design and is available in three different beautiful colors. The one thing that is unique for the Google Pixel 6’s design, is its rear camera layout. I haven’t seen such design for any other smartphone brands. Thus, make it unique.
The Google Pixel 6’s three different colors are the following:
- Sorta Seafoam
- Kinda Coral
- Stormy Black
I always find it interesting when I read these color names each smartphone comes in. It just gives the smartphone their own uniqueness instead of just saying blue or black. However, with the Google Pixel 6, I must say the colors do look close to what it is called to.
B) Google Pixel 6 Pro:
As illustrated above, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is very similar to the normal Google Pixel 6.
However, if you watch carefully, the main differences between the two in design would be the following:
- Amount of rear camera lenses each have.
- The colors available for each one of them have been quite different compare to the other one.
- Size of each smartphone is different.
If you look carefully at the rear camera layout for each smartphone, you will see that the Google Pixel 6 Pro has three rear camera lenses, whereas the normal Google Pixel 6 only has two rear camera lenses. Thus, it already tells us that the Google Pixel 6 Pro has a better rear camera compare to the Google Pixel 6.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro is also available in three different colors and they are the following:
- Cloudy White
- Sorta Sunny
- Stormy Black
As you can see, the Google Pixel 6 Pro has two different colors available as compare to the Google Pixel 6. Only one color they both have and that is stormy black.
The Google Pixel 6 size is 6,3 inches, whereas the Google Pixel 6 Pro is 6,71 inches. Definitely the Google Pixel 6 Pro is the bigger smartphone between the two.
Main features for the Google Pixel 6 Series
Now with many smartphone brands, there are many similarities what they provide for us users. Thus, users want to know more what stand out more of each specific smartphone. And of course, the Google Pixel 6 series has some features that stand out more compare to other smartphones.
As you already seen, its design and color was one of them. But besides that, the Google Pixel 6 series is known to be the best and most advanced speech recognition smartphone.
This means, the Google Pixel 6 series is the best to handle different languages in different countries. It is quite a great feature to have if you travel in a foreign country or you stuck somewhere who no one can understand you or the other way around.
What makes the Google Pixel 6 series the best in translation department, is its live translation feature. It translates immediately any language of one user to a language to the other user to understand what the other user was saying.
Besides that, it also has a feature called fast and accurate voice typing. Yes, many smartphones have this feature. But, is either slow in following your voice or does not listen correctly.
With the Google Pixel 6 series you do not experience that problem at all. You can speak as a normal human being at your own voice speed and the Google Pixel 6 series smartphone will capture everything. Who can say no to such smartphone?
Google is focusing mainly on quick voice recognition due to the world evolving so much. They want to make sure that when a task is asked to their devices, their devices will respond to it immediately and correctly.
Rest of its features, are really similar that other smartphone brands are offering already. Now its time to go deeper in the specs of the Google Pixel 6 series smartphones and see how each differ among each other.
Google Pixel 6 VS Google Pixel 6 Pro
The main differences between the two smartphones of the Google Pixel 6 Series are the following:
- Size – As mentioned before, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is 0,31 inches bigger than the Google Pixel 6.
- Weight – The weight between the two smartphones aren’t so far apart from each other. Basically a 3g difference. However, both smartphones been quite heavy to carry and use.
- Front Camera – Google Pixel 6 Pro wins this category by having 3 more megapixels for their front camera lens as compare to the normal Google Pixel 6.
- Rear Camera – Google Pixel 6 Pro wins here hands down again. With an extra rear camera lens and almost having 110 megapixels capabilities with all its rear camera lenses combined, the normal Google Pixel 6 does not stand a chance to win.
- RAM – The Google Pixel 6 Pro has the fastest and biggest RAM memory size option in the group.
- Storage – The Google Pixel 6 Pro has three on board storage memory size options to choose from while the Google Pixel 6 only has two. Plus the Google Pixel 6 Pro third on board storage memory size to choose from is larger compare to the Google Pixel 6’s two options.
- Battery Capacity – Both smartphones are really similar in fast charging speed. However, the Google Pixel 6 Pro’s battery will last a bit longer before having need to recharge it with power compare to the Google Pixel 6’s battery.
Overall: The Google Pixel 6 Pro beats the Google Pixel 6 too much in all the spec categories. The only time the Google Pixel 6 would win, is for its size. As there are users that do not prefer to work with large smartphones.
The retail price for the Google Pixel 6 series smartphones
The Google Pixel 6 series smartphones will approximately go for under the following retail prices in different currencies:
With these prices, I can say the Google Pixel 6 series fall under the premium smartphone category. Anything above $500 or R7000 is definitely classified premium.
Firstly, the Google Pixel smartphone brand is not known in many countries. However, with the Google Pixel 6 series, I believe the smartphone brand can go worldwide.
Its design is amazing with beautiful colors to choose from. Besides that, it also has fantastic rear camera specs. Well mostly for the Google Pixel 6 Pro. It would be nice to see this smartphone brand in countries that is not aware of it like South Africa.
If Apple did well, I am certain Google can too. So I believe the Google Pixel 6 series is definitely a smartphone to consider based on those good specs. Do not forget the live translation feature as well. It is very useful in times you are stuck in areas that cannot speak in your language or understand you.
