Google Hosting An Event On October 5, But Not For The Pixel 6


Google is expected to release the Pixel 6 series sometime in October with no precise timeline available yet. A new revelation by XDA’s Mishaal Rahman on Twitter (via) indicates that Google could have an event scheduled for October 5, though it won’t include the new Pixel 6.

The company will reportedly discuss Nest, Travel, and Map products during the October 5 event instead. This information comes from a CNET article which has since been deleted. However, Rahman managed to take some screenshots of the said article.

Google will apparently release new smart speakers and Nest security products to complement the existing lineup during the October 5 5 event. This early October event is also likely to discuss future upgrades to Google Maps and Flights.

The Pixel 6 could launch by October 19 according to recent rumors

So when will Google bring the Pixel 6? Reports indicate that the phones will be unveiled on Oct 19 with retail availability slated for just over a week later on the 27th or 28th. Perhaps the company will offer more details on the arrival of these phones during the Oct 5 event.

The existence of the Pixel 6 is no longer a secret. This is thanks to a number of leaks as well as marketing materials published by Google. The company has also revealed some hardware features of the phone. We now know that the Pixel 6 series will debut the Google Tensor SoC underneath.

Rumors suggest that the standard Pixel 6 will have dual rear cameras in the form of 50-megapixel and 12-megapixel sensors whereas the Pixel 6 Pro will have an additional 48-megapixel telephoto sensor. Both models will feature a 12-megapixel selfie camera which is an upgrade from the Pixel 5’s 8-megapixel sensor.

Older reports have also talked about a foldable Pixel phone being in the works. Rumors say that Google could reveal this new smartphone alongside the Pixel 6 next month, though we’re taking this with a grain of salt.

Apart from the radically different design, the Pixel 6 will also offer upgrades to the internal hardware. Both Pixel 6 models will offer 12GB of RAM across all variants, up from 8GB on the predecessor. Storage variants will start from 128GB, with the addition of 256GB and 512GB models.
