If any niche product has its own followers, users who like Google phones are definitely the representatives of this niche circle.
Even if you look at the global market, Google phones can only be classified as Others. Statistics released by IDC in June 2020 show that the total global shipments of Google Pixel series mobile phones in 2019 have exceeded 7.2 million units, a significant increase of 52% year-on-year in 2018, and this can only account for 0.4% of the global share at the time.
But Google has not given up the process of making a mobile phone. The recent renderings of the Pixel series of new phones seem to show a completely different concept from the previous generations, and the attention of the phone circle has shifted to this niche mobile phone manufacturer.
Compared with the previous generation, the design of the Pixel6 series can be said to be completely subverted. Both the design language and the overall style have undergone drastic changes.
Judging from the renderings, the two models of the Google Pixel 6 series use perforated screens. Like Samsung’s usual design, Google also placed the front camera in the center of the top of the screen, which brings about a high screen-to-body ratio. The large forehead of the upper frame is also canceled, and the four sides of the frame are controlled to a very narrow degree, which is pleasing to the eye.
It is said that the front camera of the Pixel 6 series mobile phones will support 4K video recording, which can be said to be a qualitative leap compared to the previous generation.
The camera module is the biggest change in the Pixel6 series. Google finally gave up the square module in the upper left corner. The back panel of the phone uses a curved ribbon to place the lens hardware, the Pixel 6 has two cameras and an LED flash, while the Pixel 6 Pro uses a three-camera configuration. The specific parameters are unknown.
However, Google’s camera quality is still very good. In the early days when various companies adopted dual or even triple cameras, Google used single-camera models with computational photography. It is believed that the Pixel6 series will be upgraded on the basis of hardware upgrades. The imaging quality can usher in an improvement.
As far as the design of the backplane is concerned, many netizens said that this is the best-looking Pixel model. The standard version uses a more youthful color, while the high-profile Pro series color system is more stable. This color-matching method is reflected in the products of many manufacturers.
In addition to the orange, black, and white color versions, the rendering also shows a champagne gold color version with a metallic frame and good looks.
Based on the Android system, global manufacturers have launched a wide range of mobile phones with different configurations. Even if Apple and its iOS camp are thrown away, Google’s own mobile phone hardware seems to be somewhat powerless.
Google’s advantage is that it can equip Pixel phones with the latest native Android system, which is expected to be realized on the Pixel 6 series. In fact, we can still see Google’s efforts in making mobile phones, and they are gradually correcting the shortcomings of previous works, and reducing mistakes, so as not to let a product leave regrets.
Just like the rear fingerprint recognition of the left and right horizontal bars, only this backward unlocking method is cut off this time, as well as Google’s compromise and paranoia.
So, do you like the design of Pixel 6?
