Tensor’s heterogeneous architecture uses the entire chip to enable this new feature at a quality not achievable until now. Because our chip’s subsystems work better together, Tensor can handle photography tasks more quickly.
There’s also video, which is always a tough use case to solve for. We’ve always dreamed of getting Pixel video to match the quality of Pixel photos — and Google Tensor has helped us deliver better experiences in each area.
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.
You can also expect more accurate face detection on Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro compared to previous Pixel phones. Not only will your phone locate and focus on your subject more quickly, but it will consume about half the power when compared to Pixel 5.
More protection with Tensor security core and Titan M2
Together, Titan M2, Google Tensor security core, and TrustZone™ running Trusty OS give Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro the most layers of hardware security in any phone.
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 Tensor was built around the AI and ML work we’ve been doing in collaboration with Google Research, in order to deliver real-world user experiences. Tensor is unlocking experiences that weren’t possible until now. We love the idea that helpful technology is available whenever and wherever you need it, so whether Google Tensor is helping you use Motion Mode or bringing you higher quality translations, we can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself.
