Google is expected to release the Pixel Fold, Pixel Watch, and perhaps new Nest speakers with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones on October 19. Some facts concerning the Google Pixel Fold and Pixel Watch have already surfaced in the rumour mill. The Android maker’s foldable phone and wristwatch are two of its most anticipated products. Google is expected to announce its new tablet at the same time as the Pixel Fold and Pixel Watch. It’s possible that it’ll be dubbed the Pixel Tab.
The Pixel Fold, Pixel Watch, and new Nest speakers might all be unveiled during the Pixel 6 event on October 19, according to a Twitter tipter known as @AppleLe257.
According to previous rumours, the Pixel Fold is expected to launch before the end of the year and is being developed under the codename ‘Passport.’ It’s said to have a foldable OLED display made of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO).
Google revealed its work on foldable smartphone prototypes in 2019. In Android 10, the firm included native support for foldable screens, which aided companies like Samsung. However, the Android maker has yet to announce whether or not it aims to develop a commercially viable foldable phone.
There have been a few stories indicating Google’s interest in building a wristwatch that it might call the Pixel Watch, similar to the foldable phone. According to current rumours, Google’s watch will have a circular display and will be released in October. Google also announced a cooperation with Samsung to develop Wear OS earlier this year.
There haven’t been any trustworthy reports about the new Nest speakers, so we don’t know what to anticipate. However, Google may expand its existing portfolio during the event by presenting additional smart speakers to compete with Amazon’s newest Echo line.
Google’s new tablet, according to the source, will be unveiled at the same time as the Pixel 6. It might be the follow-up to the Pixel Slate, which was announced in 2018.
Rick Osterloh, Google’s Senior Vice President of Devices and Services, stated in 2019 that the firm will no longer manufacture its own tablets. He indicated that moving ahead, Google’s hardware team will be entirely focused on developing laptops.
We’ll have to wait until October 19 to see what Google has in store for us this year in terms of hardware. Meanwhile, more speculations and leaks are likely to surface, pointing to some of the impending announcements.
