Pixel 6a vs. Pixel 6: What are the differences?

At Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference, the search-engine giant unveiled the next-generation smartphone in its Pixel A-series line: the Pixel 6a. A roar of applause filled the room when Google announced that the Pixel A-series, for the first time, will feature the same chipset packed inside its flagship smartphones: Google’s custom Tensor chipset. 

Google calls its Tensor processor a “milestone” for machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) processes. Why? Well, thanks to the custom-made SoC, the latest Pixel phones offer state-of-the-art experiences. For example, you no longer need to copy and paste foreign-language text into a translator app (e.g., Google Translate) with the Google Pixel 6a (and, by extension, the Google Pixel 6 series). With the Live Translate feature, the Google Tensor chip can auto-translate your texts directly in Messages and WhatsApp.

The Google Tensor chip also enhances computational photography features. For example, the processor powers Motion Mode, which can add motion effects to static photos and employ the long-exposure method to stabilize action-packed scenes.
