Google have revealed their 2 new flagship smartphones for 2021, the Pixel 6 and it’s bigger brother, the Pixel 6 Pro. Boasting a beautiful new design that fits perfectly with the new ‘Material You’ UI that will debut alongside Android 12 later this year. The Pixel 6 will also be the first Google phone to use their brand new custom silicon, Tensor.

Google Assistant is already the most advanced personal assistant, so it will be interesting to see if Tensor is able to improve this by bring many more requests and actions on device as well as speeding up other AI related tasks like image processing.
