iPhone 13 Vs. Pixel 6: The New Flagship Competition

Compare Apple and Google's latest phones.


Google launched the latest Pixel smartphones at its launch event. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are here, and Google has a “Pro” version this time to compete with the current top-selling flagships. With its custom Tensor chip, it might offer fair competition. Likewise, let’s have a comparison of the Pixel 6 vs. the iPhone 13.

The iPhone 13 series is Apple’s premium smartphone lineup for 2021. It’ll be exciting to see where Google’s Tensor SoC stands; the company says it’s comparable to the Snapdragon 888 and considerably faster than the previous Pixels. That said, let’s have a specification showdown for the Pixel 6 and iPhone 13.

With aggressive pricing, the Pixel 6 might do quite well in the current smartphone market. However, the Pixel 6 isn’t available in all countries, unlike the iPhone 13. Above all, the Pixel 6 is less expensive than smartphones from other OEMs in the same segment.

Talking more about the Pixel, the Tensor SoC made its debut with the Pixel 6 series, and with more brands making their chips, things are getting interesting in the smartphone market again. It’ll be exciting to see the benchmark comparison of the new Pixels against other flagships as well.
