Google teases the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro based on custom-built Tensor processorsGoogle is about to unveil the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in the autumn. However, the company decided to give its audience a preview of what's coming. For starters, it has updated the design while retaining a typical Pixel look and feel. The rear shell renders unveil a two-color rear shell with a prominent camera bump that spreads across the width of the device like a band in black. It houses the rear camera system with the shooters being horizontally aligned. That prominent bump is necessary - Google has upgraded the cameras and "the improved sensors and lenses are now too big to fit into the traditional square - so the new design gives the whole camera system a new home with the camera bar." The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have new materials and finishes, too - like the Pro's light polished aluminum frame, and the 6’s matte aluminum finish.

In addition to running on Android 12, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be based on custom-built Tensor processors. The move to custom-built SoCs was due to Google's aim to "bring its most innovative AI and machine learning (ML) to Pixel users." This means improved existing features, adding new ones, and increasing personalized experience with devices that keep getting better. Moreover, with Tensor's new security core and Titan M2, Pixel 6 will have the most layers of hardware security in any phone.
