Google Tensor chipset.

Google has been religiously stoking the fires of its fans by teasing about Pixel 6 during Android 12’s announcement, uploading its advertisements to YouTube, and leaking its camera specs to nosey reporters. Now, a new minor detail has surfaced, this time hinting at the phone’s performance.

A quick recap: Google officially said the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro phones would be using a proprietary System-on-Chip (SoC). Called Google Tensor, the processor is yet another addition to the competitive chipmaking scene. It promises hardware-based security, although nothing about its performance was mentioned. At best, the rumours point to Samsung being the chipset’s manufacturer. 

Tipster “Panda’s Sudden Baldness” (translated, on Weibo) recently said that the Google Pixel 6’s and Pixel 6 Pro’s chipset would likely measure up to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset in terms of performance. While a flimsy assumption on its own, Google had once said that the Pixel 6 series would be a “premium-priced product”, making near-flagship levels of performance on the new phones believable. 

This puts the Google Pixel 6 phones around the same performance tier as a Vivo X60 Pro, which came with an actual Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset. Our findings showed that the chipset outperforms last year’s Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, likely due it the SD870 being a higher-clocked version of the Snapdragon 865+ processor
