Google is all set to unveil its latest version of the Pixel handset on October 4 in New York City. The highly anticipated event is part of the annual fall Made by Google event, where the tech giant typically introduces a range of new hardware products. This year, Google is expected to showcase its flagship models, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, along with the Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold, which will be Google’s first ever foldable device.
One of the highlights of the event might be the announcement of the Pixel Watch 2, Google’s latest wearable. Last year’s Pixel Watch had a mixed response, but Google seems to be making improvements with its new version. The Pixel phone line has been getting better with every release, starting from the Pixel 6 in 2021, which introduced a new premium design, improved optics, and the first-party Tensor chip.
According to leaks, the Pixel 8 will bear resemblance to the Pixel 7 and will feature the powerful Tensor G3 chip with nine cores and the Arm Immortalis architecture. This means users can expect enhanced performance and smoother multitasking capabilities. While the Pixel Tablet is not expected to receive an update, there might be updates to the Nest/Home line of smart home devices. Google has previously deprioritized these offerings, but it could be the perfect opportunity for the company to introduce improvements and catch up with competitors.
The event will be livestreamed on YouTube, allowing viewers from around the world to tune in and get a glimpse of the latest Google products. The event is scheduled to take place at 10 AM Eastern Time, and reporters will be in attendance to share real-time updates and insights.
As the October 4 event approaches, Google enthusiasts and tech enthusiasts in general are eagerly waiting to see what surprises Google has in store for them. With the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, the Pixel 7a, the Pixel Fold, and potentially the Pixel Watch 2, Google is certainly making a bold statement in the smartphone and wearable market.
