Last year’s Pixel phone might have been unambitious, but this year’s pair look to be a real treat. Google’s finally got its own chip, the Tensor, alongside the Titan M2 coprocessor for better security. (Given the Pegasus spyware incident this summer, it’s a welcome and well-timed addition.) There’s plenty of new software features, like Live Translate and Material You, the latter of which will allow you to customize your home screen’s look even more. But this past year has been a pretty decent year for phones, and below you can see how the Pixel 6’s new gussied-up insides compare to some of the other stellar flagships we’ve seen in 2021. And be sure to check out our hands-on, as well as our full review later this fall.Pixel 6iPhone 13Galaxy S21OnePlus 9Pricing$599 / $699$799 / $899 / $1,099$800 / $850$729Dimensions158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9 mm (6.2 x 2.9 x 0.4 inches)146.7 x 71.5 x 7.65 mm (5.78 x 2.82 x 0.3 inches)151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9 mm (5.97 x 2.8 x 0.29 inches)160 x 74.2 x 8.7 mm (6.3 x 2.92 x 0.34 inches)Weight207g (7.3 ounces)174g (6.14 ounces)171g (6.03 ounces)192g (6.77 ounces)Screen size6.4 inches (163 mm)6.1 inches (154.94 mm)6.2 inches (157.48 mm)6.55 inches (166.37 mm)Screen resolution2,400 x 1,080 (411 ppi)2,532 x 1,170 (460 ppi)2,400 x 1,080 (421 ppi)2,400 x 1,080 (402 ppi)Screen typeOLEDSuper Retina XDRInfinity-O Dynamic AMOLEDFluid AMOLEDBattery4,614 mAh2,775 mAh4,000 mAh4,500 mAhInternal storage128 / 256 GB128 / 256 / 512 GB128 / 256 GB128 GBExternal storageNoneNoneNoneNoneRear camera(s)Dual cameras:Ultra-wide, 12MP, f/2.2Wide, 50MP, f/1.85Dual cameras:Ultra-wide, 12MP, f/2.4Wide, 12 MP, f/1.6Three cameras:Ultra-wide, 12MP, f/2.2Wide, 12MP, f/1.8Telephoto, 64MP, f/2.0Three cameras:Main, 48MP, f/1.8Ultra-wide, 50MP, f/2.2Monochrome, 2MPFront camera(s)8 MP, f/2.012 MP, f/2.210MP, f/2.216MP, f/2.4Video capture4K at 60 fps4K at 60 fps4K at 60 fps8K at 30 fpsSoCGoogle TensorApple A15 BionicQualcomm Snapdragon 888Qualcomm Snapdragon 888CPU2.8 GHz octa-core3.23 GHz hexa-core2.8 GHz octa-core2.8 GHz octa-coreGPUARM Mali G78Apple hexa-core GPUAdreno 660Adreno 660RAM8 GB6 GB8 GB8 GBWiFi802.11ax802.11ax802.11ax802.11axBluetoothv5.2v5.0v5.2v5.2NFCYesYesYesYesOperating systemAndroid 12iOS 15Android 11Android 11Other featuresIP68 certified, USB-C, Qi wireless chargingIP68 certified, Lightning connector, MagSafe and Qi wireless chargingIP68 certified, USB-C, Qi wireless chargingUSB-C, Qi wireless charging
