Google Pixel 6: Possible details about Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 “Pro” continue to appear on the web. The latest rumor indicates that new smartphones may have the same graphics processor as the global version of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
According to the information, the device should use the GS101 Whitechapel chipset developed by Google, accompanied by the ARM Mali-G78 GPU. Apparently Samsung is the company responsible for the production of both.
Other evidence about the graphics chip was found in the Google Issue Tracker. The support website highlights the presence of the Mali-G78 on a device called “P21”, but the number of cores and clock speed have not been disclosed.
According to leaker Yogesh, the GPU “performs well under pressure”. However, the first comparative tests have shown completely different results.
It’s worth noting that rumors indicate the Pixel 6 will get a 6-inch Full HD display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the Pro or XL variant has a 6.4-inch Quad HD display to compete with other Android phones.
Chipset less powerful than Snapdragon 888
Leaker Yogesh also revealed possible information about Google’s GS101 Whitechapel chip. In terms of power, the Pixel 6’s processor shouldn’t be on par with the mighty Snapdragon 888.
Built at 5 nm, the chip will be at the same level as the Snapdragon 870. Currently, Qualcomm’s model supports smartphones considered high-end, such as the Motorola Moto G100 and the Xiaomi Black Shark 4 gamer.
So far, Google hasn’t officially announced the Pixel 6 release date. However, the devices are expected to hit the market between October and November of this year.
