Google is hosting a product event on October 6 that looks set to be packed with new gadgets, from phones to smartwatches.
The company has already confirmed that we will see the full reveal of the Google Pixel 7 Y Pixel 7 Pro October 6. Those phones are likely to be joined by the google pixel clockthe first smartwatch from the search giant and a potential rival to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy 5 Watch.
We already have an idea of what to expect. Google previewed the design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which will be an evolution of the sporty camera bar aesthetic of the Pixel 7. Google Pixel 6. And we’ve also got a glimpse of the Pixel Watch, which so far appears to have an attractive rounded design and comes with what’s probably the ideal version of Google’s Wear OS.
But questions remain about all three products, such as their capabilities, more details about their specifications, and price and release dates. Read on for everything you need to know and what to expect from Google’s October event.

What to expect from Google’s October event
We’re expecting to see at least three products from Google: a couple of new flagship Pixel phones and the Pixel Watch. Both have been teased considerably over the past few months, but we’ll finally get the details on the specs and features of each device.
But there’s always room for Google to announce more, whether it’s a new price for the Google Pixel Buds Pro or Nest products, so here’s what we think you’ll see at Google’s October event.
Google Pixel 7
Leading the charge in hardware for Google, we can expect a no-holds-barred look at the Google Pixel 7. From the images Google has shared so far, it looks like a minor evolution over the Pixel 6, with the same rectangular camera bar, just with a more distinctive pill-shaped module for the main and ultrawide cameras, rather than a more invisible visor-like look that the Pixel 6 has.
A a more compact design could be on the cards, also, if rumors are to be believed. Google hasn’t shown off the screen, but we expect it to measure 6.4-inches, possibly with slimmer screen bezels that offer a bit more room for the screen to breathe.
Google has already announced colors for the Pixel 7: obsidian, lemongrass, and snow. That’s black, lime green, and white for those of you not talking about marketing.
We also know that the Google Pixel 7 will be powered by the Tensor G2 chip, which is a second generation version of the Tensor chip that was first seen in the Pixel 6 phone and also in the pixel 6a.
While not the most powerful system-on-a-chip in terms of raw power, the tensor chip pushed a lot of smart features for Pixel 6 phones. So we can expect the same with the Pixel 7’s Tensor G2, only Google is likely to reveal even more smart features to give the phone an edge over the likes of the iPhone 14 Pro Y Galaxy S22.
There’s no word on pricing or an official release date, but we’d expect the Pixel 7 to sit somewhere in the ballpark of the $599 Pixel 6. Google has also said you can pre-order the Pixel 7 on October 6the same day as the launch event.
Google Pixel 7 Pro
The Pixel 7 Pro is basically the same story as the standard Pixel 7, in that it will be an evolution of the Pixel 6 Prowith a modified camera bar that apparently mixes the main and ultra-wide cameras into one pill-shaped module and the telephoto camera into a separate unit.
Speaking of cameras, we haven’t heard much in terms of hardware updates to the Pixel 7 Pro’s lenses or sensors. But since Google, like Apple, tends to push their sensors for several years before updating, we don’t expect any major changes here, either. that Google only went from a 12-megapixel primary camera to a 50MP one with the Pixel 6 range. What we can expect is the Tensor G2 chip pushing smarter camera features and improved computational photography to deliver photos that really stand out from the crowd. the rivals in our best camera phones ready.
Again, Google hasn’t shown off the Pixel 7 Pro’s screen, but we think it’ll stick with the 6.71-inch display seen on the Pixel 6 Pro, perhaps with a dynamic refresh rate that can drop from 120Hz to 1Hz at help save on battery life. There is a possibility that Google’s reluctance to show the screen is because it has some special feature, for example, a front camera under the screen, but that theory does not convince us.
Colors for the Pixel 7 Pro have been confirmed to be Obsidian, Hazelnut, and Snow. So expect a pretty dull look on the flagship phone. And pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we assume it will follow the $899 price of the Pixel 6 Pro. Pre-orders start on October 6, just like with the Pixel 7.
google pixel clock
Probably one of the most exciting products from Google’s October event, the Pixel Watch will be Google’s first foray into smartwatch hardware. And if it’s anything like previous Pixel devices, it’ll show the best possible version, at least in Google’s eyes, of Wear OS.
But unlike the Pixel 7 phones, Google has been more discreet with the Pixel Watch. Sure, we’ve seen its pretty cool design, and Google has noted that there will be further integration of Fitbit services and a “new Wear OS experience,” but what it will look like remains a mystery.
Based on the leaks and tips so far, we’re expecting there to be an LTE model, a mix of watch straps, and a chip from the Samsung Exynos range either Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear Selection. Otherwise, we’re left a bit in the dark about what capabilities the Pixel Watch will have under its circular face.
Instead of expecting a flood of special features like blood oxygen monitoring, we think the Pixel Watch will present itself as the perfect companion device for other Pixel products, seemingly synchronizing with Pixel phones, Pixel Buds and technology for the Google Nest smart home. Likewise, we would be prepared for Google to have a surprise up its sleeve for the Pixel Watch.
Google Pixel Buds Pro
Promotional images from the Pixel hardware showcase not only show off the Pixel 7 phone and Pixel Watch, but also a pair of Google Pixel Buds Pro.
Now, these wireless earbuds just released in the summer, so they’re too new for a hardware upgrade. But we wouldn’t be hugely surprised if Google didn’t announce new features for the Pixel Buds Pro that are enabled through the Tensor G2 chip and smart syncing with the Pixel Watch, for example using the Watch’s GPS to intelligently adjust active noise cancellation levels. to adapt to the environment in which the user finds himself.
Or maybe we could see a surprise price drop to allow the Pixel Buds Pro to better compete with some of the best wireless headphones you can buy today.
Google Nest Smart Home Products
While Pixel products are set to steal the headlines at Google’s October event, there are rumors that new Google Nest products will be revealed. we have already seen hints at a new Google Nest routerso we wouldn’t be surprised if that were revealed alongside some software updates for the Nest Home Hub.
Speaking of which, it’s been a while since Google released a new Nest Home Center, so it could be said that there is a possibility that a third generation model will be revealed. But it seems that there are no rumors to support it, and the updates are likely to come in the form of software.
We also wouldn’t be surprised to hear about updates to various Chromecast devices, likely with tighter integration between them and Pixel phones, as well as a dedicated Chromecast app or watch faces for the Pixel Watch.
Google October Events Outlook
We know quite a bit about what’s coming up for Google’s October event, but that’s not to say Google doesn’t have a few surprises up its sleeve.
While the design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch phones has pretty much been revealed, there’s a lot more to hear about their capabilities. And we expect to be intrigued by a host of new software features for these devices that harness the power of Google’s AI and intelligent work progress.
In short, Google’s October event will be one to watch. Rest assured, we’ll be on hand to bring you the latest news and any first impressions of the hardware as the event unfolds.
