The Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro will be released on October 19
The launch date for the Google Pixel 6 has been set for October 19, according to a tweet sent out by Google on Tuesday. The Android company is holding a virtual launch event to reveal the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, two new flagship phones. In August, Google announced both new Pixel phones, along with some details. However, at the launch later this month, we can expect Google to provide specifications and other relevant information. At the Pixel 6 launch, Google may also reveal its much-anticipated Pixel Watch, as well as a glimpse of its first foldable phone, rumored to be the Pixel Fold.
The event will take place on October 19 at 10 a.m. PT (10:30 p.m. IST), according to a tweet from Google. There is also a dedicated Pixel Fall Launch Event webpage that shows the front of the Pixel 6 series.
It is worth noting that the Pixel 6 launch date was announced shortly after the release of Android 12, which has yet to reach Pixel devices. The new Pixel phones will come pre-installed with the most recent version of Android.
Both the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be powered by the company's in-house Tensor SoC and will have a dual-tone design, as announced in August. The Pixel 6 Pro will have three rear cameras, while the regular Pixel 6 will have two. The Pixel 6 is said to have a 6.4-inch full-HD+ flat screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 90Hz refresh rate. On the other hand, the Pixel 6 Pro is said to have a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Both new Google Pixel phones are expected to support 33W fast charging, according to previous reports.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's Senior Vice President of Platforms and Ecosystems, said in August that the Google Pixel 6 Pro would have an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, it is unclear whether the standard model will use the same sensor or a different one.
The Pixel 6 series' price has yet to be revealed. But, according to Google Senior Vice President of Devices and Services Rick Osterloh, the Pixel 6 Pro will be expensive, and the Pixel 6 will be positioned in the "upper segment" of the market.
