Google Pixel 6 Pro: features worthy of a high-end.

The latest most powerful smartphone from the tech giant is finally here: the Google Pixel 6 Pro. Indeed, it is in charge of being the exponent of the high-end within a market that is increasingly adding new technological equipment skills.

It seems that Google has finally decided to enter the high-end category with the launch of this terminal. In addition, it should be noted that users have been waiting for the device since the end of 2021, but it is already available in official stores.

Google Pixel 6 Pro: characteristics of a high range

At first glance, the Pixel 6 Pro is quite related to its generation partner, the Pixel 6. However, the differences are noticeable in the quality of the camera, the resolution of the screen, and definitely in the size.

Innovative design

If Google were to enter the sprawling market for feature-rich devices, it would do so in its own way.

In this sense, it brings us a totally innovative design, featuring the camera module that is presented horizontally. However, it is presented in a totally elegant way, in an attempt to differentiate itself from the competition.

Likewise, it is characterized by protruding considerably, so it is recommended that the mobile is used with a case. Added to the fact that, due to its edges and size, it is a phone that can collect a lot of dust.

The Pixel 6 Pro camera design is totally innovative.

The only thing that can be blamed for Google is the peculiar location of the power button. Said element is located above the volume buttons. It should be added that it does not fulfill the traditional function of turning off the mobile either.

Quality display

On the front, we find a 6.7-inch screen, making it one of the largest phones on the market. Added to this is an AMOLED LTPO screen with Quad HD+ resolution, which is accompanied by a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Both features previously mentioned, are responsible for giving a much greater sense of fluidity to the one that Google mobiles had been showing. It is not surprising if it is actually a high-end model.

As for the operation of the refresh rate, they take the basic idea of the iPhone 13 designs. That is, the mobile will have the task of saving energy when we are not touching the screen. Therefore, hertz jumps sequentially as we touch the screen.

In another order of ideas, under the screen we find an optical fingerprint reader. With the passage of time, and as well as the use we give to the mobile, we will end up getting used to this biometric technology.

Software: Android 12 at its best

It is no surprise that the Google Pixel 6 Pro has Android 12, which represents one of the biggest updates in its history. Thanks to its new language, Material You, we have exquisite customization functions.

One of the examples is that when we change the wallpaper, the system theme automatically adjusts to the color palette of the image. Everything, with the aim of achieving a much more pleasant visual result for the user.

In addition, it is always running in the background, so it is capable of detecting the name of a song automatically. Other small details are also added that, combined, achieve a totally dynamic and versatile experience for the user.

The latest Google mobile will have up to Android 15.

In the specific case of the Pixel 6 Pro, Google highlighted that it has great longevity. That is, it will be able to support up to 3 more updates of the Android operating system, hypothetically reaching version 15.

To the latter are also added the security patches, which specified around 5 updates in this regard.

Processor: Google bets on its own

After more than three years enjoying the processors of the leading brand, Qualcomm, it seems to be time for Google to say goodbye to them. At least for now.

As a substitute for the traditional Qualcomm, inside the Pixel 6 Pro we find a processor named Google Tensor.

As it is a newborn processor, it has a long way to go to reach the same level of power as the big ones on the market. However, it meets the basic requirements that a mobile must have to function optimally and efficiently.

To get an idea of the Tensor's performance, experts compare it to the Snapdragon 870 in terms of performance.

Therefore, we can say that it is a processor that avoids any type of lag within a game, to give the clearest example.

The most important thing is that, accompanied by the 12 GB RAM, and the adaptive refresh rate, we have a totally fluid mobile. Such capacity is what allows it to rub elbows among today's great high-end devices.

Acceptable autonomy despite high consumption

With a powerful 5,000 mAh battery, it is capable of lasting for a full day. Of course, as long as we do not squeeze it to the maximum with applications that demand more work from the processor.

That is to say, if we plan to give it a destination for games, or for photography themes, it is likely that the battery will suffer a lot to keep up. In large part, it is due to the influence of the new processor causing energy efficiency to be lower compared to other models.

It also has a fast charge of 30 W, taking approximately 2 hours to fully charge. Beyond the fact that the mobile lasts all day, it is a relatively long time, considering that other smartphones are charged in half an hour.

Camera of incredible results

If something has known how to characterize the different models of the Google Pixel, is the camera. For this occasion, they finally incorporate a modern sensor, in the case of the Samsung ISOCELL GN1, with a fairly considerable size.

The important thing that each user takes into account is the resolution, where the main sensor reaches up to 50 MP in capturing photographs. It is also complemented by an f/1.9 aperture lens.

Google's intention is to have a mobile with the best camera on the market.

As is common in today's mobiles, the 6 Pro also has an ultra wide angle, featuring its 12 MP and f / 2.2 aperture. Its telephoto lens, with greater capacity, reaches up to 48 MP and aperture f / 3.5.

Google Pixel 6 Pro Price

In official Google stores, in the case of the basic version with 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, it is achieved for 899 euros.

However, we can choose the models that increase their storage memory, although the RAM remains the same. Clearly, due to such a condition, the price will increase exponentially.

What is clear is that it is one of the cheapest high-end phones of 2022 on the market. That, taking into account each of the quality characteristics that the mobile has.

In short, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is the company's flagship in its introduction to high-end models. Until now, with its new processor and innovative design, they are on par in terms of quality with other mobiles, being an option to consider.
