Last year’s Pixel lineup consisted of the Google Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G, two relatively affordable phones that made a few compromises in order to reach their budget-friendly price points. Although lower prices are great, many still preferred the previous-generation Pixel 4 for its higher-end specifications and premium build quality.
This all changes with the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro. Google launched the Pixel 6 on October 19, 2021. Both Pixel 6 models are true flagship-level devices. They’re based on the all-new Google Tensor chip, which was built from the ground up for superior on-device AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) performance. Both models also get lots of RAM for better multitasking (Pixel 6: 8GB, Pixel 6 Pro: 12GB), high refresh rate screens (Pixel 6: 90 Hz, Pixel 6 Pro: 120 Hz), a 50MP wide-angle camera, and a 12MP ultrawide. The Pixel 6 Pro takes things up a notch with a bigger screen and a 48MP telephoto with 4x optical zoom. But starting at $599 for the Pixel 6 and $899 for the Pixel 6 Pro, neither phone is truly “cheap.”
