TLDR Life: Google Pixel 6 event on October 19

Google will hold an event to launch the Pixel 6 on October 19 as we wait on the power of its new Tensor chip.

Finally, there is official news from Google itself about the new Google Pixel 6 phone and its new Tensor chip which I'm absolutely curious. The big question is will this Tensor chip be enough to sway ALL smartphone users to the Google smartphone? The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will boast its camera again with an added layer of touch up to your photo/videography using its formidable cameras + the Tensor chip (a tech which would supposedly enhance your images).

When I got the Google Pixel 2 XL, it significantly changed my perspective on smartphone tech. I used to buy smartphones simply so I could have a phone that's able to surf the web and take pictures. Not anymore. The Pixel 2 XL was a highly reliable phone with an astounding camera that blew me away (in 2017). The Pixel 2 XL was my GPS/scheduler on my commute, catered to my various apps, and fetched my files remotely. Then the Pixel 3, 4, 5 kind of passed me by because the 2-series was still working for me; unfortunately, the proceeding series also didn't wow me much. But this time I want to find more about the Google Pixel 6 since it's introducing it custom Tensor chip. Take note that Google is facing stiff competition from all the iPhones, the premium Samsungs AND with its folding screen lineup, then there's affordable mid-tier smartphones who get the job done. It's a highly stiff enough competition that drove LG to forfeit in the smartphone arena. Which asks the question again: will the camera + new tech be enough for Google?

The next competitor that I can think of in the photography niche is Sony with its Xperia 1 III -- think DSLR camera on a phone. Although Samsung's 108 MP camera on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and the Galaxy S21 Ultra is already a current contender. If the Pixel 6 is right, it should boast an excellent camera + the Tensor chip enhancements. I guess we'll find out more on October 19 and beyond.
