Tensor SoC: The killer feature of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro?
On the 19th of October 2021, Google is going to introduce competitive flagship phones: Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The Google Pixel 6's killer feature is the new system on a chip (SoC), the Tensor SoC. It's been designed by Google, though it is not yet clear which companies make which of its parts. Google is keen to focus on its AI and machine learning capabilities, so expect both phones to boast some new photography skills.
For example, Google has talked up the anti-blurring capabilities. So if you take a photo and someone is blurred, the phone will be able to snap a still with its ultrawide lens as well as the composite HDR image captured by the main sensor. The phone can then recognise a face within the photo and combine the still from the ultrawide snapper with the others to pick out a moment when that face was not blurred.
In addition, the potentially powerful machine learning capabilities can allow the new Pixel Phones to understand accents and speak dozens of languages fluently. While the exact capabilities are impossible to decipher from cryptic ad copy, we expect to see more capable, natural voice commands with improved understanding to boot.
In addition to the TPU, the Pixel 6 will also have a new version of Google’s Titan M security chip. In the blog post announcing the Pixel 6, Google is going so far as to say that “with Tensor’s new security core and Titan M2, Pixel 6 will have the most layers of hardware security in any phone,” with a footnote that the claim is “based on a count of independent hardware security subsystems and components".
With this in-house chip, it seems like Google has opportunities to improve the overall user experience on the Google Pixel line. Don’t miss any rumours or updates about the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro by following us on Facebook, Instagram and regularly checking out our blog.
