Google is doing its best with its marketing of the Pixel 6 series

Now that the hype surrounding Apple’s recently unveiled iPhone 13 series is starting to wane, Google is ramping up its ads for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro and letting everyone know that its internal Tensor chip devices are on the way.

Yesterday, we reported that Google started announcing its Pixel 6 series with a new brand of potato chips in Japan called ‘Google Original (Potato) Chips’. The original Google chips feature a bag design that matches the back of the Pixel 6 series and comes in five colors that match the Pixel 6 series.

However, Google is only releasing one flavor, called “Googley Sabor Salado”. On top of that, Google even released a trailer for the new phone, giving fans a first look at the device being used in the real world.

Additionally, as a way to generate publicity, Google has put the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on display in its New York City retail store. However, they are encased inside a large glass, so people cannot touch / hold it, but they can look at the devices and enjoy all their splendor.

Now, billboards advertising the Pixel 6 series are popping up in cities across the United States, including New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The billboards are designed with the color theme of the Pixel 6 line in mind, with soft pink and yellow as the backdrop. Billboards display devices homescreen with color-matching clock widgets, Google search bar, and icons, thanks to new Material You themes in Android 12.

Google has yet to share a release date, although the company has stated that the Pixel 6 series will arrive in the fall. However, rumors point to a release in October.

In other Pixel 6 series news, a benchmark test on Geekbench shows scores that paint a grim picture for the Pixel 6 Pro. The device received single-core and multi-core scores of 414 and 2,074, respectively.

For reference, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra from early 2021 with its Snapdragon 888 chipset received a 927 single-core score and a 3,096 multi-core score. Similarly, the One Plus 9 had a single-core score of 1,068 and a multi-core score of 3,393. However, these are pre-launch benchmark scores and should be taken with a grain of salt.

On the bright side, rumors indicate that the Pixel 6 Pro will sport an LTPO display, allowing it to have an adaptive refresh rate, which will conserve the battery of the high-end device.
