At the I/O 2022 developer conference, Google unveiled its newest Pixel phones and its first smartwatch. The initial reveal coincided with a plan for a Fall release, but Google has now confirmed when the Pixel 7 series will be available to the public. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be unveiled by Google on October 6. Let’s have a look at everything:
Google Pixel 7 Launch Date
A few minutes ago, Google’s @madebygoogle Twitter account tweeted the official launch date for Google’s Fall hardware event. There will be a small, in-person gathering in NYC’s Williamsburg district at 10:00 AM Eastern Time today (7:00 AM PST or 7:30 PM IST). But if you click on the YouTube link below, you may see the episode as it airs live.
To get you excited for the new Google hardware, we’ve put the tweet in question right here. The Pixel 7 in Lemongrass and the Pixel Watch with its circular shape are also on display. The movie also showcases the Pixel Buds Pro, which has been released to the public (and in India).
A companion blog post to the tweet details every piece of hardware that Google will introduce during the launch event. The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Google Pixel Watch, will be part of the range. It also adds, “We’ll reveal new Nest smart home products,” suggesting that the company has more in store. The next Pixel Tablet could possibly get a proper unveiling at the event.
Is there anything we know about these new gadgets at this point? The redesigned design introduced with the Pixel 6 series will be carried forward to the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The second generation Google Tensor chipset, developed in-house, will be used in both smartphones. This should result in increased speed and AI prowess.
The Pixel 7 will have a smaller 6.3-inch AMOLED screen, while the larger 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED panel in the 7 Pro will support a higher resolution of 2K. According to speculations, the cameras’ hardware won’t be getting any upgrades, but you can count on some slick new features in the form of software. Moreover, Android 13 will be preinstalled and ready to go on these smartphones first.
In terms of smartwatches, the Pixel Watch will be Google’s first and will compete with the likes of the Galaxy Watch 5. It will have a circular dial and run WearOS 3, which has a new user interface, access to the Google Play Store, and more. The watch will also include a number of unique features, including compatibility with the Fitbit tracker. We have to sit tight and see what happens (no pun intended). Don’t worry though; we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
