    After countless renders, leaks, hands-on and disassembly videos, and so much more, we are finally going to see the tech world's worst kept secret come into the world officially later today!

    The Pixel 6 & 6 Pro along with their accessories are pretty much confirmed to be revealed during the Pixel Fall Launch Event on the 19th of October at 10 AM Pacific Time (you can click HERE to add the event to your calendar so you don't miss it).

    Even though the headlining products have been completely exposed, this event is still one that people seem to be enthralled towards this month and with good reason. This is the first time Google is making a proper effort towards hardware, which was a common complaint for past Pixel phones, particularly because of third-party manufacturing partners.

    Fellow member of the Writers' Club @CosmicPaladin did an excellent job at covering the exciting new hardware that is expected on the Pixel 6 / 6 Pro on this thread, so give it a read before it's time to hit the Play button on the video below.

    Let me summarize a few other things to expect that haven't been heavily discussed on the forums so far:
    • Pixel Fold
    This hasn't been spoken about much at all, but there is a good chance that Google either teases or launches its first foldable product alongside the conventional Pixel phones. I'm a little skeptical about this one, but evleaks (a OG leaker) tweeted this late last month:

    • Pixel Stand
    Google's updated Wireless Charger, capable of 23W, has been confirmed to be launching alongside the Pixels. This is an upgrade from the previous Pixel Stand, which was limited to 10W charging.

    The new Pixel Stand is going to also support up to 15W for Qi-certified accessories and 3W for their own Pixel Buds.

    • A few surprises?
    The Pixel Buds may get a refresh and the long awaited Pixel Watch may make an appearance, but again this is highly speculative.

    Tune in to the event!

    Please use this thread as a place to react and discuss things during the livestream.

    If the rumored prices are true, I would be tempted if they are sold in Portugal - or if Amazon has them with a RRP price.

    I am not expecting the "Pixel Watch" to be revealed today, but I would love if it is, with the "Pixel Foldable" as their "special project" to end the presentation.

    Either way, I am excited for the good times ahead. Curious to know: is anyone tempted to get a device from the Pixel 6 Series? :cool:

    Aye, that was my thinking, even if it is released during Q1 2022.

    I think Google needs to release a foldable to set some guidelines, to showcase what Android can do with that format. I remember reading that the alleged Android 12.1 update is mostly about that.

    It's going to be interesting to know where Google is going to sell them officially.

    This morning there's a new rumor that the device "will reportedly double Google’s smartphone production", so perhaps the company finally realized they have a smartphone division. :D

    Hope they Release it in India by this year. Every year pixel phones arrive India very late. Google updated the hardware, now they need to update marketing strategy too.

    That's a huge question mark at the moment. It was rumored that Google had a huge marketing budget this year, so perhaps India is going to be in the first wave of markets to get the devices.

    But Google is Google, sometimes they make some weird decisions. The best part is that we won't have to wait much longer to find out. ;)

    As with everything Google these hours, there's also a rumor about the Pixel Watch.

    It's still going to be released, but not today - targeting Q1 2022 (watch it being released with the Pixel Fold ;))

    Excited for the launch.
    BTW what is your expectations from the Pixel 6 Pro ???
    The price leaks are super awesome, but not for Asia or Europe.

    Pixel watch ! Is it also coming ?

    Completely agree with you - I just hope they don't copy Apple when it comes to pricing. After yesterday, it'll take some time for me not to get nervous about the prices. :D:eek:

    My body is ready... Even though we already know alot about it. 😂

    Would be a nice surprise, but very much doubting it'll turn up. Maybe a little update, maybe? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Indeed, and I am trying not to believe these renders. They almost look too good to be true. Still, look at them. :cool:

    I think they should wait. Let others play around and just watch what the market will ask for. The whole technology of foldables hasn't matured yet, a company like Google should enter this segment when it's more matured and then set a standard.

    Just my opinion.

    With the Pixel, the camera is always something to be excited about. Some of the features were leaked, like the "Magic Eraser", but I am right there with you. :cool:
