Even though the launch price of the Pixel 6 is US$100 lower than the Pixel 5, it features top-notch hardware compared to the mid-range offering of its predecessor.

The new Tensor chip is a 5nm SoC with an octa-core processor with two Cortex-X1 cores, as well as two mid-level cores and four power-efficient ones.

I’m excited that the custom image processor will bring the computational photography on the Pixel to greater levels.

Camera smarts include Magic Eraser (for removing unwanted distractions from a photo) and Face Unblur (which selects a sharp face from a few photos and puts it onto an action shot.

Portrait Mode offers better subject separation and improved skin tone rendering.

Night Mode and Astrophotography have also been enhanced.
