It will come with the Android 12 operating system. Google claims that it was designed to seamlessly integrate with the new mobile hardware.
Pixel 6 Pro offers the same features and speed as the standard Pixel but with a larger 120Hz display and an upgraded rear camera, including a Telephoto lens.
The phones will start at £599 for the Pixel 6 and £849 for the Pro, putting the flagship devices at a much lower price point than the latest iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro from Apple, which start at £749 for the iPhone 13, and £949 for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Google claims this new phone will have a more personal experience than previous phones, partly because of the closer integration between software and hardware.
Google Tensor, a new mobile processor that was specifically designed around Google’s work with artificial intelligence, is a part of some of this.
According to the firm, it “enables entirely new capabilities for your phone and makes Pixel 6 Pro more useful and personal.”
The ‘Camera Bar,’ one of the most striking features of this new device, is also noteworthy.
This metallic strip runs across the back of your phone and gives it a ‘clean symmetrical, balanced design that puts you front-and-center’.
Google explained that the Camera Bar made of textured metal is intended to complement the phones’ ‘expressive, versatile colors’.
They were inspired by luxury jewellery and watches.
It comes with Android 12, which is designed to adapt to the user. Wallpaper selections can change the entire user interface including icons.
You’ll also notice a fresh look and some new features on the “At A Glance”, home and lock screen. It includes information on when you should leave the house as well as reminders.

The cameras are a significant upgrade to previous Google-built smartphones. They combine hardware and software to create better-quality images.
The Pixel phone’s back has a 1/1.3-inch, 50-megapixel sensor that captures 150 percent more light.
This will result in photos with more detail and richer colours. An ultrawide lens can be combined with this lens to capture even more of a scene in a single shot.
The pro version comes with a telephoto lens, four times optical zoom, and the ability to film in 4K video.
