With the Pixel 6 and Pixel6 Pro just around the corner, getting a new Pixel 5 right now is bound to cause immediate buyer's remorse. From all the speculation, the Pixel 6 platform will be a huge leap forward in terms of power, performance, features, and design. That said, Google's new flagship class phones will most likely have sky-high sticker prices to match.

The question is, however, how far behind its predecessor will the Pixel 6 be? That's because it'll determine whether or not you should switch your old Pixel immediately for Google'' newest and greatest. If the Pixel 6 is all it's cracked up to be, Pixel 5 owners will be tempted too.

Knowing how the Pixel 6 devices will fare in the update cycle, no matter where you are in your Pixel phone upgrade journey, is essential. Here's how we're expecting Google'' uber handsets to compare to last year'.

Pixel 6 and Pixel6 Pro will cost you nothing, and the Pixel 6, Pixel6, and Pro Pixel will be expensive.

When the Pixel 5 first launched last October, it cost $699. It'll cost you about as much as it does at the time of this writing. But with all the advanced features that the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro should boast, all bets are off.

Yogesh Brar speculates that the Pixel 6 could have a starting price of $749, while the Pro might cost between $1,049 and $11,099. Google typically offers its latest Pixel for the same price as the previous Pixel, but Yogeh brar believes that while it might start at $799 for iGoogle, the new Pixel could cost as little as $199.99. This would make Google's new smartphone more expensive than its predecessor.

Google is reportedly trying to steal premium phone market share away from Apple and Samsung. The Galaxy S21 costs $799 to $1,379. According to how you configure the iPhone 13, the price of the device may range from $799 to $1,099. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will also be priced at a premium.

Design: The Pixel 6 phones will stand out for looking good.

All of Google's prior Pixel phones, including the Pixel 5, were deliberately designed not to distract from their screens. In the eye of the user, the hardware was meant to go, serving as a vehicle for Google's Android software.

The same is true for the Pixel 6 and Pixel6 Pro. Both handsets are offered in a variety of bright colors, with apparent metallic highlights, and are built to get noticed. That's a lot more visually stimulating than the Pixel 5'' two modest hues of "just black" and "sorta sage."

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will have bigger, better sensors and lenses.

One of the most significant upgrades to the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be their imaging capabilities. Physically they're a lot larger than the camera hardware on the Pixel 5. In fact, these brand-new cameras are so big they are housed in a raised bar on the back side of each phone. They run the entire width of each handset, too.

And if the word on the street is correct, there's a reason for the extra weight. Rumor has it that the Pixel 6 camera platform is built around a huge 50-megapixel sensor with wide-angle lens. Both phones should include a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens and sensor combo. The Pixel 6 Pro however will include an additional 48-megapixel telephoto camera.

Either handset's camera system should run rings around the Pixel 5'S hardware. That device has 16-megapixel ultrawide and 12.2-megapixel dual-pixel primary camera sensors.

Brandon Lee, who runs the channel This is Tech Today, shared a first look at photos and video allegedly taken on he Google Pixel 6 Pro. The images were taken in portrait mode and in dim lighting, but they showed off the phone's zoom and ultrawide capabilities, giving a taste of what pictures and videos might look like on Google' upcoming smartphone.

The Pixel 6 phones will be powered by custom chips, rather than stock ones.

In yet another seismic shift from the past, the Pixel 6 phones will be made of in-house silicon. Google's new Tensor SoC (system on chip) is at the core of both the Pixel 6 and Pixel6 Pro. The Tensor is designed for Android, much like Apple does with its A series mobile chips, and designed by Google engineers.

The result should be a snazzyed up computing and video processing performance. Hopefully, this won't come at the expense of battery life either. Google has yet to reveal details about Tensor's speeds and feeds. That being said, compared to the standard Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G on the Pixel 5, this custom chip will likely be a huge improvement over the regular Snapdragon 845G.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro may have had faster wired and wireless charging options than the Pixel 6.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will likely be the first Google phones not to have chargers in their boxes. At least that's what the tech giant said at the launch of the Pixel 5A. Other reports point to significant reductions in charging. According to 91mobiles, the new flagship devices may support 33-watt fast wired charging, for example.

And another report by Android Police suggests that the new Pixel phones will have 23-watt wireless charging stations. In either case, that beats what the Pixel 5 can accomplish. Its wireless charging is excellent at 18 watts.
