With an Instagram post and a YouTube video, Google teased the Pixel 6 series

A post on Instagram and a promotional video on YouTube teased the Google Pixel 6 series. A dozen Google Pixel 6 smartphones are shown in the Instagram post, each with a different colored wallpaper. The post is a parody of Drake's latest album, "Certified Lover Boy," which he won a Grammy for. For the first time, non-rendered images of the Google Pixel 6 are shown in the YouTube video. The Instagram post also teases a possible launch date — October 19 — which was previously hinted at. The Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro are the two models in the series.

Made By Google's Instagram post shows the Pixel 6 smartphone with Google's latest Material You design, which will be introduced with Android 12. The caption on the photo reads "Certified Pixel Lovers," which is a play on Drake's album. It shows four Pixel 6 smartphones arranged in a 4x3 grid, each with a different color wallpaper. On each device, there are different clocks and widgets. Tuesday 19 is written on the Pixel smartphones, which could be a hint at the series' October 19 launch date (which is also a Tuesday). This backs up a previous report that the Pixel 6 series will be announced in the near future.

It should be noted that Google has yet to announce an official release date.

On YouTube, a video of the Pixel 6 smartphone was also posted. This is also the first time users have seen the smartphone in their hands, rather than just rendered images. The video also shows the various color options for the Pixel 6 series, including the Pixel 6 Pro in Gold and White, as well as the Pixel 6 in Green and Orange.
