Here is a more in-depth breakdown of Google Pixel phone sizes from the most recent to the oldest:


Pixel 7 & Pixel 7 Pro

  • Pixel 7 Dimensions: 155.6 x 73.2 x 8.7
  • Pixel 7 Pro Dimensions: 162.9 x 76.6 x 8.9

Google’s 2022 Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are not only the best phones the company has ever produced but, more importantly, they are the smartest as well, and this is all down to Google’s investment into machine learning – what you and I might call artificial intelligence (AI).

Google knows that in order to make the “best” phone possible, you need more than just specs and hardware. These things are important, necessary even but they’re now just par for the course. Google wants to make its phones not only more powerful, but also smarter.

And this is all done via Google’s Tensor CPU. But what can Tensor actually do? What makes it so smart? Here’s what Google said about its chipset that powers its Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 during its launch:

What Google’s Tensor Chip Can Do

  • Google Assistant on Google Tensor uses the most accurate Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) ever released by Google. And for the first time we can use a high quality ASR model even for long-running applications such as Recorder or tools such as Live Caption without quickly draining the battery.
  • You’ll also be able to better communicate with people in the language you are most comfortable with thanks to Google Tensor and the new Live Translate feature.
  • More chat apps — like Messages and WhatsApp — will allow users to translate directly in the chat application, meaning no more cutting and pasting text into the Google Translate web service
  • By embedding parts of HDRNet, a feature that delivers the signature Pixel look more efficiently, directly onto the chip, it now works in all video modes for the first time — even at 4K and 60 frames per second — to deliver recordings with more accurate and vivid colors.

In addition to this, Tensor acts as a protective force inside your phone as well, ensuring all of your personal data and the content on your phone is protected from outside threats.

Our chip includes Tensor security core, a new CPU-based subsystem that works with the next generation of our dedicated security chip, Titan M2, to protect your sensitive user data. Independent security lab testing showed that Titan M2 can withstand attacks like electromagnetic analysis, voltage glitching and even laser fault injection. Yes, we literally shot lasers at our chip!

Google

With the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, you’re getting access to the second generation of Tensor – the Tensor G2 chipset – alongside plenty of additional updates over the Pixel 6.

One area where you will notice plenty of improvements over the Pixel 6, is the Pixel 7’s battery life – it is significantly improved. And this is, once again, down to the evolution of Google’s Tensor chipset.

Another key point about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is their price. Both phones massively undercut both Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S22 phones. The Pixel 7 Pro – the flagship model – costs the same as Apple’s entry-level iPhone 14 Plus, for instance, and that is significant.

If you’re struggling to decide which phone is the best option for you, out of the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro, here’s a quick breakdown of the main differences between the two phones:

  • The Pixel 7 starts at $599, while the Pixel 7 Pro starts from $899
  • The Pixel 7 Pro has a third 48MP Telephoto Camera
  • The Pixel 7 Pro has a higher resolution (QHD+) display with a higher refresh rate (120Hz vs 90Hz)
  • The Pixel 7 Pro comes with more storage (up to 512GB) and more RAM (12GB)
  • The Pixel 7 Pro is also bigger and runs a larger, 5000mAh battery

Pixel 6 & Pixel 6 Pro: All The Updates

If you’re curious about Google’s 2021 Pixel phones, the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, here’s a quick breakdown of all the changes and 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 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 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.
