Pixel 6 Technical Specs
The Google Pixel 6 dual-SIM (Nano+eSIM) smartphone runs Android 12 and boasts a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection on top. The display also features a 20:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 441ppi. The phone is equipped with Google’s Tensor SoC and 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM. It has a dual back camera arrangement with a 50-megapixel main sensor and an f/1.85 wide-angle lens, as well as a 12-megapixel ultra-wide snapper. The rear camera system has laser detect autofocus (LDAF) and optical image stabilization (OIS). The Pixel 6 also has a front-facing 8-megapixel selfie camera sensor with an f/2.0 lens.
Later this year, Google will work with Snap to deliver a feature called ‘Quick Tap to Snap,’ which will allow users to record Snaps for Snapchat even while the phone is locked and in ‘Camera Only’ mode. Snapchat will also release specific augmented reality (AR) lenses to improve pictures with artifacts.
The Pixel 6 contains a function called Magic Eraser that helps eliminate undesirable individuals and other items from a processed shot, in addition to Snap-powered photography capabilities. Motion Mode, which includes preset Action Pan and Long Exposure modes, and Real Tone, which claims to employ software algorithms to provide true colors, are among the preloaded features. Face Unblur and Manual white balance are two of Google’s unique camera-focused features on the phone.
The Pixel 6 comes with 128GB and 256GB of internal storage for storing stuff. 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C connector are among the connectivity possibilities. A fingerprint sensor is built into the display. An accelerometer, ambient light, barometer, pyrometer, magnetometer, and proximity sensor are among the other sensors onboard.
The Pixel 6 also comes preinstalled with features like Live Translate, which allows you to translate texts and photos without having to connect to the internet.
The Pixel 6 comes with a 4,614mAh battery that supports 30W cable fast charging and 21W wireless fast charging. There is also a Battery Share function that allows users to charge other devices wirelessly using the Pixel 6.

In addition, there is an in-display fingerprint sensor. An accelerometer, ambient light, barometer, pyrometer, magnetometer, and proximity sensor are among the other sensors onboard.
Google built a 5,003mAh battery into the Pixel 6 Pro, which supports 30W cable fast charging and 23W wireless fast charging.
