What to expect from the Pixel Fall Launch
This guide will be updated with Google’s biggest announcements as they happen. For now, here’s what we expect the company to unveil:
Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
Google has already confirmed it will unveil the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro during the event. The company has even detailed features and specs in the past about its upcoming phones, including announcing they will be powered by Tensor, its homegrown chip. Although we know a lot about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, there’s still more to learn. Google will likely have a few hidden surprises – such as software announcements – up its sleeve.
Speaking of software announcements, Google might formally announce when it’ll release Android 12. Recently, it only said that the rollout to Pixel devices would start in the “next few weeks”. Pocket-lint has an entire guide on the upcoming mobile software update, including a preview of all the key features and changes.
Is that it?
Beyond the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google is constantly rumoured to be working on other hardware, including a foldable Pixel and Pixel Watch, among other things. Any of that could make an appearance during the event. Check out our rumour guides below on some of the devices:
