Google Pixel 6: more than 120 euros in savings on Google's photophone

GOOGLE PIXEL 6. We knew it at a better price, but the Google Pixel 6 is still displayed at an excellent price of 526 euros on several specialized sites.

Have you ever heard of the Google Pixel 6? If we praise the merits of the phone from Google regularly, it’s for good reason! Although released almost a year ago, the Google Pixel 6 still establishes itself as one of the best photophones with excellent value for money. Capable of matching large high-end phones, the Pixel 6 has also been enjoying numerous promotions for the past few months. It is particularly possible to find the phone for just over 520 euros at Amazon and Fnac.

What’s new in the future Google Pixel 6a?

The Google Pixel 6a is a new version of the latest phone from the brand. This new smartphone from Google takes up the strategy already initiated by Google for its old phones by offering a more affordable version. To achieve this, the firm notably makes some concessions on certain technical aspects.

The Google Pixel 6a already only has a refresh rate of 60 Hz for its screen (while the Pixel 6 has 90Hz, and the Pixel 6 Pro can go up to 120Hz). As a reminder, the refresh rate corresponds to the number of times per second that the screen can display an image. This data is notably quite comparable to the FPS that can be found in the world of video games.

Another difference for the Google Pixel 6a: its battery drops from 4614 mAh (for the Pixel 6) to just 4306 mAh. It will therefore be expected to less battery life on the Pixel 6aespecially since its processor, the Google Tensor, is the same as that present on the Pixel 6. Data that will be closely monitored even if the autonomy of the Google Pixel 6 was relatively good.

Last concession for the Google Pixel 6a: its main photo sensor has only 12.2 Mpx (compared to 50 Mpx for the Pixel 6). Of course, this figure is not everything, and the Google smartphone range is above all known for its powerful photo editing algorithm. We will have to see if the latter works as well on the Google Pixel 6a.

At what price is the Google Pixel 6a marketed?

The Google Pixel 6a presents itself as a cheaper version of its big brother. Many Internet users will therefore be interested in its official price when it is released. The Google I / O conference revealed several data on the future phone, including its price. The Google Pixel 6a is available from 459 euros (against 649 euros for the Google Pixel 6).

Apart from the firm’s official store, only Fnac had opened pre-orders on the new Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Unfortunately, the brand has suffered from stock shortages since the release of the latest phones from Google, and you will have to turn to other stores and specialized sites to get your hands on a Pixel 6. Hurry though, stocks seem to be going rapidly. The Pixel 6 Pro is also available from Rakuten, but with very limited stock, and above its recommended retail price.

Several stock shortages are already starting to appear on the new Google smartphone, including the Pixel 6 Pro. Be aware, however, that some specialist shops still have availability on these products, in particular Boulanger and Darty.

The Google Pixel 6 will have been a real surprise for many users, since it quickly established itself as one of the best phones of 2021.

The Google Pixel 6 stands out very clearly from the rest of the competition with its atypical design. If the front of the smartphone remains quite classic, we will immediately notice the massive block at the back which “splits” the phone into two distinct parts (and of different colors). We find there in particular a main photo sensor of 50 Mpx and an ultra wide-angle of 12 Mpx. These are arranged on a fairly massive block, but which will allow the smartphone to hold well on a flat surface as well as in hand. If the photo has long been the strong point of Pixel phones, it will be necessary to wait for the arrival of the first tests to confirm this quality again on the next versions. The front camera of the Pixel 6 is, on the other hand, equipped with 8 MP.


Regarding power, Google unveiled its first home-made chip. This processor, called “Google Tensor”, was specially created for the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones after 4 years of research and development. It is particularly specialized in artificial intelligence, generally very developed for the automated editing of photos on Google smartphones. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are also compatible with 5G communication networks.

Google is once again eagerly awaited on the autonomy of the next Google Pixel 6. Its predecessor, the Pixel 5, was exemplary on this point with a 4614 mAh battery which allowed it to last for a full day or two. of your use. Lhe Pixel 6 is equipped with a 4614 mAh battery. It remains to be seen whether the smartphone and its internal software will be able to manage the battery life well.

Regarding the screen, that of the Pixel 6 has a 20:9 aspect ratio of 6.4 “with OLED FHD + display with a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz. Note that both versions of the device can adapt their rates automatically according to your applications in order to save your battery.

What are the specs of the Google Pixel 6 Pro?
