As expected, Google officially presented yesterday the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro after months of rumors, leaks, and some advances that the company itself has come to offer, such as the fact that this new generation of Pixel phones have a self-developed processor called Tensor.
Nor are we surprised at this point by its groundbreaking design, with a peculiar camera module, as well as the color combinations with which these phones will hit the market. And there will be no lack of personality in these devices, and thanks to Tensor, will overcome the current technical limitations to offer new experiences offered through machine learning.
On the photographic field, Google highlights that the main camera of the rear camera configuration of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be a 50MP camera in which a 1/1.3-inch sensor will be used that allows up to 150 percent more light than the main camera of the Pixel 5, or what is the same, it uses a larger sensor, with the benefits in image quality that this implies.
To get performance out of the Tensor SoC, Google has equipped these models with a feature called Magic Eraser that allows the quick erasure of objects in images, including background images, endangering the funny trolls that occur on Twitter by those who want to remove distant people in the photographic captures.
