CRN picks the 10 coolest smartphones of 2021, which includes premium models with adaptive refresh rates, telephoto cameras and even improvements in new form factor types.

Google Pixel 6 Pro

Google’s Pixel 6 Pro is the company’s new flagship 5G device that sports a 6.7-inch OLED display with 512 pixels per inch, 16 million colors and a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The smartphone’s display is slightly bigger than the Pixel 6, and it can also support more RAM with up to 12GB and more storage with up to 512GB. The phone’s other differentiator from the smaller model is the addition of a 48-megapixel telephoto camera in addition to the 50-megapixel wide camera and 12 mega-pixel camera that are present on both phones. Its front camera also has a few more megapixels and a wider field of view. Both phones are powered by Google Tensor, a custom-built processor that provides advanced on-device AI and computational photography capabilities. They also both provide more than 24 hours of battery life based on mixed use and up to 48 hours using the Extreme Battery Saver feature.
