It is official: the Google Pixel 6 is getting an official unveiling on October 19 at a bespoke occasion – although we already know a number of details about the telephone and its Professional relative as a consequence of Google teasing them copiously.
So the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Professional will certainly present up (properly, you’d hope, at their very own occasion) however what else might we see? Some rumors level to some probably additions, and others dream of some extra unlikely surprises.
We have made some guesses, and categorized them under by how probably they’re: some are virtually particular, some are potential, and a few are less-than-likely.
Will present up…
1. Google Pixel 6
If the Google Pixel 6 would not present up at its personal launch occasion, one thing has gone critically unsuitable on Google’s finish. Did it keep out too late the evening earlier than and get up with no reminiscence of the evening earlier than, and should undergo some Vegas-themed comedy set items to search out the Professional earlier than the launch occasion?
Much less has come out in regards to the Pixel 6 than its huge sibling. It will probably have a 50MP predominant and 12MP ultra-wide digicam, a display screen with a 90Hz refresh charge, 8GB of RAM and 33W charging.
We all know the system may have the identical Tensor chipset because the Professional, which is one made by Google itself, however we do not really know the way good that is simply but.
2. Google Pixel 6 Professional
We all know a bit extra in regards to the Pixel 6 Professional than its fundamental counterpart – it appears like a flashier telephone, making it a greater goal for leakers.
Apparently it will have a 6.67-inch display screen with a 120Hz refresh charge, the identical cameras as the usual telephone however with a 48MP telephoto snapper, a 5,000mAh battery and maybe as much as 12GB of RAM.
That is anticipated to be Google’s anticipated return to the premium telephone market after positioning the Pixel 5 as a mid-ranger, with a number of do-it-yourself software program, together with one explicit factor a number of individuals are anticipating…
3. Android 12
Google often releases the yearly replace to Android – this 12 months Android 12 – to older Pixel telephones when the latest one releases. Admittedly that is been a bit difficult this 12 months for the reason that code has already been unveiled, however the brand new software program is not really obtainable to obtain on telephones simply but.
We all know all of the Android 12 options, the flagship of which is the Materials You theme which helps you to set a home model for all of your telephone’s menus and screens, however to this point it is solely obtainable in beta mode.
Hopefully on the Pixel 6 occasion, Android 12 will get launched to the primary few telephones, or we’ll no less than hear a launch date.
Might present up…
1. Google Pixel Fold
Numerous rumors have been pointing to a late-2021 unveiling, however that does not essentially imply it will get proven off in the course of the October launch – and these rumors might be completely unsuitable, after all.
There have been a number of rumors and experiences over a number of years, which is likely one of the causes we’re anticipating it, but we nonetheless have a really unclear picture of the telephone. A full unveiling may be very unlikely, however maybe a tease is feasible?
2. Google Pixel Buds (2021)
We’ve not heard a lot about these true wi-fi earbuds – in reality, we have not actually heard any rumors suggesting they’re coming in any respect.
So why are these buds within the ‘potential’ column? Properly, as a result of we did not hear a lot about Google’s different Pixel Buds earlier than they launched both, so there’s precedent for silence. They usually’re additionally extra probably than among the different merchandise we’ve got on this listing.
Most likely will not present up…
1. Google Pixel Watch
We have been listening to experiences of the Google Pixel Watch from earlier than written historical past started, however nonetheless it is by no means proven up. At this level, we’re probably not assured that it will ever present up.
This was anticipated to be a Google smartwatch that showcased Put on OS in its purest kind – Put on OS has been by varied iterations since we began listening to the rumors although.
Possibly we’ll be shocked, and Google will lastly resolve to point out off its first-ever smartwatch. However for the reason that firm just lately purchased Fitbit, it is probably saving its wearable efforts for units below that model.
2. Google Pixel 6a
The a-series of Pixel telephones usually come out round six months after the originals, and provide related options and designs at a cheaper price, with some corners minimize to maintain them inexpensive.
Consequently, we would not anticipate to see the Pixel 6a on the October occasion – it will more likely present up in March or April 2022.
Not solely would a Pixel 6a compete with the Pixel 6 and 6 Professional, which might have related options however price extra, however with an ongoing world scarcity of chipsets and different tech parts, Google probably would not need to be making three separate telephones on the similar time.
