Google announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones equipped with a single-chip system of its own development Tensor SoC with tensor cores.
According to the company, the chipset can handle the most powerful artificial intelligence and machine learning models. They stressed that since the launch of the first generation of smartphones, developers have been introducing AI-powered features such as HDR+ and Night Sight to achieve high quality photos.
“You’ll see new camera capabilities, voice recognition and many other features of the Pixel 6,” said Rick Osterloh, Google’s senior vice president of Devices and Services.
He added that the new chipset features the Titan M2 security core, which will make the Pixel 6 “the most secure smartphone on a hardware level.”

The Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch screen with FullHD+ resolution, while the older model gets a 6.7-inch display with curved edges and QHD+ resolution.
Additional details, release date and price of smartphones the company will announce at a special event to be held in the fall of 2021.
Recall that in May Google presented the TPUv4 tensor processor, designed for cloud computing, at the developer conference I/O.
In June, researchers at Google Research reported that they had used reinforcement learning to speed up chip creation from months to six hours.
