Google revealed this morning that their Pixel hardware presentation will take place on Thursday, October 6.
At I/O 2022 in May, Google teased the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch. This forthcoming event will go into great depth about those goods, including features, pricing, and availability. The phrase “It’s all coming together this fall” stresses the product ecosystem.
On October 6, at 10 a.m. ET, there will be a webcast for anyone who cannot attend the in-person event in Brooklyn. After two years of virtual announcements in 2020 (Launch Night in) and 2021, this is Made by Google’s first physical appearance (Pixel Fall Event).
We already have a solid idea of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hardware, but it all boils down to what new, AI-powered software Google has designed for the phones.
The viral video contains an intriguing new look at the Pixel 7 Pro. Head-on, the cameras are fairly visible, with the telephoto lens clearly visible within the circular lens and an extremely wide ring around the Centre.
Meanwhile, Google has yet to demonstrate Wear OS 3 on the Pixel Watch. It will almost definitely be more “stock” than Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5, with the Montblanc Summit 3 offering a better indication of the UI, and may be limited to what’s accessible in the emulation. We have yet to see what cross-device functionality will connect the wearable and phone experiences.
It remains to be seen whether Google will make any additional hardware announcements at the event. A new Nest Wifi with 6E and “Chromecast HD” are expected as non-Pixel devices.
