Google and Apple are heated rivals in the phone industry. Apple has their IPhone’s and Google has their Pixel. Can Google compete with the new IPhone or will Apple continue their reign over the phone industry?
The new Google Pixel 6 has not even had a formal launch event, yet they are displaying both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro in New York City, at the exact same time that Apple announces the IPhone 13 and IPhone 13 pro. Seems like a little bit of gamesmanship on the part of Google. We still don’t have any details on the exact launch date for the new phone besides “coming soon in the fall of 2021” but what we do know is that the top portion of the phone is noticeably larger on the Pro than the normal Pixel 6.
Cameras on phones have been the talking point for what seems like the last 5 years. IPhone continues to add more and more lenses and it seems like Google is going to follow suit. With the normal Pixel 6, it will feature 2 lenses while the Pixel 6 Pro will feature 3, including the ability to zoom in on the subject that you are taking photos of. How does this compare to the IPhone? Well, we don’t know for sure what the specs are officially for the new Pixel, but the unconfirmed specs are a 50MP standard wide camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera and the Pro-exclusive 48MP telephoto camera. The IPhone 13 on the other hand will feature a 12MP triple-lens rear camera that will be using large sensors and individual pixels to separate itself.
The Tensor chip is what everyone has been waiting for. What is the Tensor chip? It is Google’s in-house chipset. We are very eager to see the results because Google has ditched Qualcomm for its own in-house SoC solution. All in all, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have a lot of exciting features to look forward to, but will it live up to the hype? Will it be able to compete against the IPhone 13? Guess we will find out soon enough.
