With all Pixel smartphones, Google aims to bring as many features as possible to older Pixel models but it might take some time. The report further reveals that there need to be some technical investments. As per the Google spokesperson, “Some technologies will require additional technical investments, such as Live Translate, as our on-device language models are engineered to run on Pixel 6’s proprietary Tensor chip on TPU (which older Pixel models don’t have).” Also Read - Google Pixel 6a key specifications appear online, tipped to get custom Tensor chipset
