Google Pixel Phone Sizes Breakdown
Here is a more in-depth breakdown of Google Pixel phone sizes from the most recent to the oldest:
Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro Size & Dimensions
The Pixel 6 measures in at 158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9 mm and it has a 6.4in AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and support for HDR10+. The Pixel 6 Pro has a larger 120Hz LTPO AMOLED screen that measures 6.7in. The Pixel 6 Pro is also larger than the Pixel 6 with the following dimensions: 163.9 x 75.9 x 8.9 mm.
Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro: All The Updates
Pixel 6 Updates
- Display – The Pixel 6 runs the same OLED display as the Pixel 5. It’s a 6.4in 90Hz AMOLED panel and while it lacks plenty of the Pro’s specs and fizziness, for the asking price ($599) this is still a very good display. It is more than equal to what you get on Apple’s iPhone 13 and 13 Mini.
- Battery – The Pixel 6 runs a 4614 mAh battery and, like the Pixel 6 Pro, it supports 30W wired charging and 21W wireless charging. Google does not include a charger with either the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, though, so you’ll need to buy a 30W charger in order to tap into its fast-charge abilities.
- Camera – Google has heavily updated the camera module on the Pixel 6 compared to what we got on the Pixel 5. The Pixel 6 runs a dual-lens camera module that is made up of a 50 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide) lens and a 12 MP, f/2.2, 114˚ (ultrawide). It doesn’t have lazer auto-focus like the Pixel 6 Pro, and it lacks the telephoto lens too, but for a $599 phone this is a very decent upgrade over the Pixel 5’s camera module.
- Fingerprint Sensor – Google has finally killed off the physical fingerprint scanner on its Pixel 6 range of phones. Both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro now use under-display fingerprint scanners. I don’t know how I feel about this; I really love the fingerprint sensor on the back of the Pixel 4a 5G and the Pixel 5.
- RAM – The Pixel 6 runs 8GB of RAM and is available in either 128GB or 256GB storage variants. Neither the Pixel 6 nor the Pixel 6 Pro feature SD support or a headphone jack.
- Colors – The Pixel 6 is available in the following color options: Sorta Seafoam, Kinda Coral, Stormy Black
Pixel 6 Pro Updates
- Display – The Pixel 6 Pro runs a 6.7in 120Hz 1440 x 3120 pixels display with HDR10+. The screen tech is LTPO AMOLED. This is the most advanced display Google has ever deployed on a Pixel phone. From its size to its refresh rate, the Pixel 6 Pro’s dwarfs the Pixel 5’s from 2020.
- Battery – The Pixel 6 Pro has a large display and it runs 5G, so it needs a large battery to keep everything running smoothly. Google has opted for a 4905mAh battery inside the Pixel 6 Pro with 30W Fast-Charging. Although, to take advantage of the 30W fast charge, you’ll need to buy a separate charger; Google does not include a charger in the Pixel 6 box.
- Camera Tech – Google has massively updated the Pixel 6 Pro’s camera module. The Pixel 6 Pro uses a triple lens camera module that runs a 50 MP, f/1.9, 26mm (wide), a 48 MP, f/3.5, 104mm (telephoto), and a 12 MP, f/2.2, 114˚ (ultrawide). The camera supports 4x optical zoom, lazer auto-focus, and optical image stabilisation.
- Google Tensor – Google’s new Tensor CPU is jam-packed with AI and machine learning algorithms to make the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smarter than any other phone on the market. Tensor’s AI abilities extend to all areas of the phone, from live translation and voice typing, to its camera module for video and photo editing on the fly. Tensor even has things like Magic Eraser that removes unwanted things from images and video.
- CPU Performance – While Google’s Tensor CPU packs in plenty of special features and AI smarts, it likely won’t be as powerful as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 or Apple’s A15 CPU. This shouldn’t be seen as a deal-breaker, however. Google’s Pixel phones have always been underpowered compared to the competition. And Tensor’s AI abilities should more than make up for the shortfall in performance.
- Android Updates – Google has confirmed that it will be offering five years of Android support to everyone that buys a Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro. This means if you buy the Pixel 6 Pro in 2021, you’ll get Android updates until 2026. That is the best you’ll get in the Android market and it is nearing Apple’s industry-standard support. Not too shabby.
- RAM & Memory – The Pixel 6 Pro runs 12GB of RAM and is available in the following storage options: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
- Colors – The Pixel 6 Pro is available in the following color options: Cloudy White, Sorta Sunny, Stormy Black
Pixel 5 Size & Dimensions
The Pixel 5 measures in at 144.7 x 70.4 x 8 mm and it uses a 6in OLED display. The design of the phone is smart and understated. I’m a big fan too, having used one as my daily driver since it got a release date.
Google eschewed expensive CPUs for the Pixel 5 in order to keep the price down. The camera tech, however, was still very impressive – although the Pixel 6’s looks to up the ante considerably.
With respect to performance and battery life, the Pixel 5 has been one of the most consistent and reliable phones I have ever used. It is easily the best Pixel phone Google has released to date.
And this makes me very hopeful about the Pixel 6, a phone which should be utterly stunning once it arrives later this year.
Pixel 4a Size & Dimensions
Google Pixel 4a, announced on 3rd August 2020, is Google’s latest phone release. The phone has a power-efficient OLED capacitive touchscreen display with 16M colors, 5.8 inches screen size, and a high display resolution of 1080 X 2340 pixels.
