Google has started sending out invites for its fall hardware event, which is set to take place on Thursday, October 6th at 10AM ET. The event will launch the upcoming Pixel 7 phones, as well as the Pixel Watch — the company showed off both devices at its I / O event earlier this year, announcing they’re coming in the fall.
Google’s announcement comes just one day before Apple’s Far Out event, where it will reveal the iPhone 14 — you can follow all the news about those announcements here. Since Google’s last event, purported leaks have revealed even more about the devices, with both the Watch and phones seemingly making their way into people’s hands.
The Pixel 7 seems like it’ll be a pretty straightforward continuation from the previous generation of phones, but there’s a bit of pressure with the Watch as the “first smartwatch built by Google, inside and out,” as its product page on Google’s online store says. Google’s competition (namely Samsung and Apple) have been making wearables for years, so the company’s entry has to be competent and at least somewhat competitive right out of the gate. So far details about it are scant — we don’t even know what chip it’ll use — but we should get a clearer picture come October 6th.
