All in all, both of those cameras posses the exact same sensor measurements albeit not the same resolution. You should expect the Canon T6 to offer extra detail having an extra 12MP. Higher resolution will also allow you to crop shots somewhat more aggressively. The younger T6 is going to have a benefit in sensor innovation.
