It’s official: The Google Pixel 6 is officially unveiled at a bespoke event on October 19th – although we already know a lot of details about the phone and its Pro relative as Google teases them abundantly.
So the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will definitely show up (well, you’ll hope at your own event) but what else can we see? Some rumors point to some possible additions, and others dream up some more unexpected surprises.
We have made some guesses, and classified them below by how likely they are: some are almost certain, some are possible, and some are less than likely.
able to see…
1. Google Pixel 6
If the Google Pixel 6 doesn’t show up at its own launch event, something has gone seriously wrong on Google’s part. Did it stay out too late the night before and wake up with no memory of the night before, and go through some Vegas-themed comedy set pieces to find the pro before the launch event?
Compared to its bigger brother, less has been revealed about the Pixel 6. It will likely have a 50MP main and 12MP ultra-wide cameras, a screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, 8GB of RAM, and 33W charging.
We know that the device will have the same Tensor chipset as the Pro, which is made by Google itself, but we don’t really know how good it is right now.
2. Google Pixel 6 Pro
We know a little more about the Pixel 6 Pro than its original counterpart – it feels like a flashier phone, which makes it a better target for leakers.
Apparently it will have a 6.67-inch screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, the same cameras as the standard phone but with a 48MP telephoto snapper, a 5,000mAh battery, and maybe up to 12GB of RAM.
Google’s anticipated return to the premium phone market after placing the Pixel 5 as a mid-ranger is expected to include a lot of homemade software, including a special that a lot of people are anticipating.. .
3. Android 12
Google usually releases annual updates to Android — Android 12 this year — for older Pixel phones when the latest is released. Admittedly, it’s gotten a bit complicated since the code was unveiled this year, but the new software isn’t actually available to download on the phone just yet.
We all know Android 12 features, chief of which is the Material You theme that lets you set a house style for all of your phone’s menus and screens, but so far it’s only available in beta mode.
Android 12 is expected to release for the first few phones at the Pixel 6 event, or at least we’ll hear a release date.
1. Google Pixel Fold
Rumors of the Google Pixel Fold have been doing the rounds for a while now – it’s expected to be Google’s first foldable phone, taking inspiration from the Pixel 6 but… well, the Fold.
A lot of rumors are pointing to an unveiling in late 2021, but that doesn’t mean it will be shown during the October launch – and these rumors could be completely wrong.
There have been a lot of rumors and reports over the years, which is one reason we’re speculating, yet we still have a pretty fuzzy image of the phone. Chances of a full unveiling are slim, but maybe a tease is possible?
2. Google Pixel Buds (2021)
We already saw the Google Pixel Buds A-series earlier this year, but it is possible that the company is working on an annual update to its top-end Pixel Buds (2020).
We haven’t heard much about these true wireless earbuds — in fact, we haven’t really heard any rumors suggesting they’re coming at all.
So why are these buds in the ‘possible’ column? Well, since we didn’t hear much about Google’s other Pixel Buds before their launch, there’s precedent for silence. And they are more likely than some of the other products we have on this list.
Might not be visible…
1. Google Pixel Watch
We’ve been hearing reports of the Google Pixel Watch from before the written history began, but even then it’s never been shown. At this point, we’re not really sure it will ever show up.
It was expected to be a Google smartwatch that showcased Wear OS in its purest form – Wear OS has been through various iterations since we started hearing rumours.
Maybe we’ll be surprised, and Google will finally decide to show off its first smartwatch. But since the company recently bought Fitbit, it’s likely to save its wearable efforts for devices under that brand.
2. Google Pixel 6a
The A-series of Pixel phones often come out about six months after the original phones, and offer similar features and designs at a lower price, with some corners cut to keep them affordable.
As a result, we wouldn’t expect to see the Pixel 6a at the October event – it will be much more visible in March or April 2022.
Not only will the Pixel 6a compete with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which will have similar features but cost more, but with a global shortage of chipsets and other tech components, Google probably doesn’t want to make three separate phones. same time.
