Google has suddenly unveiled its latest smartphones – and surprisingly quietly. Two new devices have appeared on the company’s online store, and we have them deep diving on both phones i Tensor, a new system on a chip that will power the next generation of Pixel devices.
What is the most exciting part? New colors? A new cyclopean-style visor featuring camera sensors? That new chip? Even more smart intelligence across the entire device might be a little predictable, but that didn’t stop Google from explaining what its new SoC will offer.
Here we go into a lot of detail about Google’s new “four years in the making” chip, but expect more AI-based processes to work at the same time without overheating the phone. Improvements are made in voice and speech processing – think of Google Assistant – as well as in photography and video recording, all of which sound like the sixth add-on will continue to work according to the benefits of the Pixel series.
Rick Osterloh, in an interview with Engadget, explained – but without specifying – that the Pixel 6 series will include larger recording sensors than before. He said the Pixel 6’s main camera will let in about 150% more light than previous Pixels. Only the Pro has an additional telephoto option with 4x optical zoom, which will definitely help me decide between the two. It only remains to hear the price and release date.

The discovery seems to confirm Einstein’s prediction.
Scientists have seen for the first time the phenomenon taking place behind a black hole. The researchers were able to capture light from the back of a supermassive black hole 800 million light-years away.
Stanford astrophysicist Dan Wilkins says this is “a key part of the puzzle for understanding” how the universe came to be. By studying the bright flashes of X-rays emanating from the black hole, the researchers noticed weaker flashes of light. These were the “luminous echoes” of the rockets bouncing off the gas behind the black hole. These phenomena were first predicted by Einstein in his theory of relativity, published in 1916.

The trials are taking place in Europe.
