Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

Google officially announced the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, its new flagship-level devices. The company has been offering Pixel devices since 2016. They're often highly praised for their camera performance. Unashamedly flagship, the new models hit a number of spec points to keep up with the latest trends. They were heavily leaked prior to launch, but Google itself still shared a lot of information about them during its Pixel Fall Launch event.

Google Pixel Pass

When Google introduced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, it also announced a subscription bundle called Pixel Pass. It's probably the easiest way to finance the latest Pixel phone and get access to an entire suite of premium services and features all for a flat monthly fee.

Google described Pixel Pass as a "new way to own a phone". Starting at $45, you can get the latest Pixel phone with upgrades every two years. Pixel Pass includes other perks, too, such as extra storage, ad-free YouTube, and what Google calls "Preferred Care". It guarantees phone repairs, replacements, and more. The idea is, with Pixel Pass, you can finance your phone via Google Store and get Google services and features all for one monthly price.

Is that it?

Well, no. Google really dove into the chip - Tensor - powering its latest Pixel phones, as well as the Android 12 software running behind the scenes. Pocket-lint has separate guides, below, which delves into each of those updates. But, largely, the Pixel Fall Launch event focused on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
