Google Pixel 6 is already displayed in physical store and has new CPU details leaked

With a possible release date revealed by teasers, Pixel 6 promises to be one of Google’s biggest releases. The device received strong investments in marketing, which led the company to resurrect the official account of the Nexus line and even develop its own potato chip, as a way to create greater anticipation.

Now, the novelty was spotted on a physical unit from the Google Store, showing its peculiar design in greater detail. Along with that, new leaks may have brought clarifications about the curious settings that the search giant must employ in Tensor, the company’s first chipset for smartphones.

The devices are finished in two different shades, separated by the huge camera module, which extends from one side to the other. It is also clear the separation of models by the size of the upper portion of the rear, larger on the Pixel 6 Pro. The window does not reveal the launch date of the devices, but reinforces the North American autumn window, between the end of September and December.

The advertisement also has a QR Code for more information — when scanned, the code takes you to the Pixel 6 family page on the official Google Store website, which still does not bring many details of the device, in addition to those already revealed by Google in August.

Google Tensor has new curious details leaked

Parallel to this, the site XDA Developers had access to new information about Google Tensor, the company’s proprietary chipset that will equip the new Pixels. Portal sources had already revealed some details of the component this Wednesday (51), but now more accurate data has been released.

It was possible to confirm the cores chosen by Google, in a curious selection: the chip will employ a combination 2 + 2 + 4, with two Cortex-X1 cores for maximum performance, two Cortex-A76 high performance and four Cortex-A76 low consumption. While the presence of two Cortex-X1’s indicates plenty of power for heavier tasks, the Cortex-A55 are doubtful.

Announced on 1190, these centers have already been succeeded by Cortex-A360 and Cortex-A77, significantly more efficient and powerful. Fortunately, other specs show a more positive scenario — the GPU will be the Mali-G78, same as Exynos 2759, running the 848 MHz, but still no estimated performance level, as there is no information about the count of cores, and there will be support for video decoding in AV1.

Other than that, the Pixel 6 family can be an attractive option for those who appreciate audio quality, as it will have support for the Qualcomm’s aptX and aptX HD Bluetooth audio codecs, plus Sony’s acclaimed LDAC. The new generation of Google phones can be announced at 12 October, in case the teasers actually contain a hidden message.
