Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be unveiled on October 19, a new report suggests. The two phones were made official last month and a Google executive showed off their design and teased some specs. At the time, Google had said that the Pixel 6 series will be launched later this year and it now looks like we have a date for Google’s launch event. In addition, an alleged retailer leaking hints about support for 23W wireless charging for the Pixel 6.
The upcoming Pixel phones, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, will bring a big change to the Pixel lineup, which has arguably gotten quite old over the past few iterations. Google has completely reworked the design for the Pixel 6 series and has also decided to go the Apple route and use its own SoC called Tensor. While the search giant hasn’t shared a release date yet, a report from well-known leaker Jon Prosser via its Front Page Tech website states that the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available for pre-order and reaching customers on October 19, as well as stores, on October 28.
While the date for Google’s launch event is unclear, Prosser points out that since pre-orders begin on October 19, it could be when the company hosts its “MadeByGoogle” event.
Recently, a tipster from China reported that the Pixel 6 series will be launched on September 13, a day before the rumored Apple launch event. Prosser states that the September 13th launch date is incorrect and that it will arrive about a month later.
In addition, an alleged listing for a wireless charging standard for a Google Pixel device has suggested 23W wireless charging, as shared by Android Police. This would be for the Pixel 6. At the moment it is unclear whether the Pro variant will also support 23W fast wireless charging or something even faster. It was reported last month that the two models can provide 33W fast wired charging, which isn’t quite as impressive as some other flagship phones, but it’s definitely a step up from previous Pixel phones.
