Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “From Tensor to Live HDR+ Video, Google's Pixel 6 Pro is going & taking after the iPhone 13 Pro”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Compared to previous generations, Google is going after Apple (and Samsung) much more aggressively with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Google this morning fully detailed the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 after teasing key aspects several weeks ago.

It starts with Tensor, or what Google called the “biggest mobile hardware innovation in the history of the company.” Google is not competing on performance, like Apple’s A series of chips, but rather wanted an SoC optimized for running its machine learning algorithms and the resulting user-facing features.

The Tensor chip is specifically designed to offer Google’s latest advances in AI directly on a mobile device. This is an area where we’ve been held back for years, but now we’re able to open a new chapter in AI-driven smartphone innovation. Tensor also gives us a hardware foundation that we’ll be building on for years to come, so you get the personal, helpful experiences you’d expect from a Google phone.

This includes a local speech recognition model that uses “half as much power” when running on Tensor. It powers an “Assistant voice typing” experience that lets users edit what they’ve transcribed in an entirely hands-free (and offline) manner. This includes being able to “Send” with your voice, say “Clear” to remove the last sentence, and use “Next”/”Previous” to move through text fields. Meanwhile, you can spell letter-by-letter when mistakes are made, and there’s also easy emoji insertion. 

Call Screen, where your Pixel automatically answers unknown calls and asks them to state their purpose, is also more accurate with Tensor, while translation gets a big upgrade. Google says translation quality improved 18% thanks to Tensor, with that jump usually taking “multiple years of research.” Other features include:
