Google’s new Pixel 6 series is rumored to be launched around October 2021. And I just can’t wait for the spotlight to fall on Pixel.

Pixel 6

Pixel 6 is Google’s new base variant of their pixel series. It’s rumored to have so many upgrades and changes in their build. Pixel 6 is rumored to have around 6.4inch standard AMOLED Full HD+ display with 120Hz refresh rate. It’s new for Pixel to get into this rate, so probably they will get to this with the new Pixel 6. The camera can be assured to be a dual camera with 50MP and 12MP and the front facing camera with 8MP. Google performance in the camera department has been the best in the industry, so we hope the same continues now. When coming to storage, the RAM would be around 8 GB and with 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants. Battery is something which might be a downside as it’s rumored to have 4614mAh. And as usual, stock the latest android and proper updates. Pixel 6 will have Android 12 pre-installed. The expected price of Google Pixel 6 Pro is 61,999 INR with color variant Just Black.

Now let’s come to the main event, Google’s custom processor “Whitechapel”

Google has been working with Samsung to come up with a new chip for their smartphones called Whitechapel which is set to rival A14 Bionic and Snapdragon 888, which is considered the best in the industry. The rumors are that the new chipset will be running Octa core processor with a 5 nm chip with the help of Samsung ‘s IP and semiconductor SLSI division. The latest news says that this new chip has a CPU performance to the level of Snapdragon 870. Few developers suggested that it will be showcasing the 14 core Mali-G78 GPU, which is quite good as its own. Since Pixel is collaborating with the SLSI division, we might get to see some similar lines between Samsung Exynos and Google Whitechapel.

As mentioned, “Whitechapel” would be Google’s first attempt at creating an SoC. It’s possible it could have a rough start at the beginning, maybe. This chip is internally referred to as the “GS101“. With the Whitechapel project, it should be possible for Google to more deeply integrate that hardware into the GS101 chip, allowing better performance and power usage.

In Whitechapel, it was said that the first chip would be equipped with a Pixel Visual Core and an “NPU” or “Neural Processing Unit.” If those rumors hold true, the Google Pixel 6 powered by the Whitechapel GS101 could mark the return of the Pixel Neural Core.

Will Google Pixel be a Game changer in India, and What’s so new in it?

The release of OnePlus Nord 2 might be a threat to Google Pixel 6 series. OnePlus Nord 2 promises advanced features with the best price. When compared to the 6 series, people will definitely prefer the Nord 2. What will surprise the customers is the Whitechapel chip, many Tech Greeks might be feeling to get hands-on experience on the Whitechapel chip, so will it impress the customers is still out of the blue. Google is pretty predictable when it comes to Pixel flagships, as the company is confident of sharing hints on what users can expect from the smartphones.

As one major hint has already been alarmed, upcoming Pixel phones will feature “deep technology investments”, as mentioned the Whitechapel chip as equipped NPU which supports advanced AI based features. Android 12 is another plus point of Google Pixel 6. Some rumours also suggest that Google’s 3D face unlock technology could make a massive comeback. Pixel 6’s main camera sensor might be Sony’s IMX766 or Samsung’s GN2. Pixel coming with a 50mp camera is no big surprise. With help of this, video resolution will be improved.

With such next level advancement in features, Google Pixel is not going to have a hard time in India.

Conclusion
