How to buy Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

Google's new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are announced, reviewed and up for order. These Pixels promise new designs, new cameras, uniquely designed Google Tensor CPUs, and more.

This year's Pixel phones come in two sizes: the standard Pixel 6 and the larger, triple-camera equipped Pixel 6 Pro. The base Pixel 6, with 128GB of storage, starts at $599, while the Pixel 6 Pro runs $899 and up if you prefer to go above the base 128GB.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro look nothing like most previous iterations, with a metal-and-glass design highlighted by a rear camera bar that's reminiscent of the classic Nexus 6P. The smaller Pixel 6, which really can't be considered small by any stretch of the imagination, features a 6.4-inch, 2400 x 1080 OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The bigger Pixel 6 Pro stretches its legs with a 6.7-inch, 120Hz LTPO OLED display with 3120 x 1440 resolution.

On the inside, Google's brand new Tensor processor powers both, while the Pixel 6 has 8GB of RAM and the 6 Pro has 12GB. The new chips have a lot to prove for Google, as do the new camera systems, with the Pixel 6 having a dual-camera setup and the 6 Pro with a third camera and lens in its rear bar. The phones match each other with 50MP main cameras and 12MP ultrawide, but only the Pro counterpart gets a 48MP sensor with telephoto 4x optical zoom.

Time will tell if all this hardware and new camera software puts the Pixel at the top of the pack, but in the meantime, let's take a look at how the Pixel 6 phones are configured and made available.
