It’s that time of year. Techtember, and Techtober are finally here. Google has just sent out invites for the Pixel 8 event, just a day after Apple sent out invites for its iPhone 15 event.
Google will be taking the stage in New York City to announce the new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. We could see a few other goodies announced here. It is getting time to replace the Pixel Buds, so maybe we can get a new pair of Pixel Buds at this event.
Along with the Pixel 8 series, we’ll also be seeing the Tensor G3 for the first time. This is going to be Google’s third-generation Tensor chipset, made specifically for Pixels. Hopefully, it’ll be the start of something great for Google, as Tensor hasn’t been so great in the first two generations.
What’s coming on October 4?
Typically, this fall event is where Google will announce its latest flagship devices. In previous years, we have seen more than just two phones at this event. But so far, that’s all we’re confident with saying is arriving at this event. We could see some other products like a new pair of Pixel Buds, or a Chromecast with Google TV. Sometimes, Nest will get in on the fun and release some new products too.
This is going to be like Christmas for Android fans, as Pixel is still a very popular product for Android fans. Especially the cameras on the Pixel, as well as the Google software. Google is also likely to announce some new software features that are exclusive to Pixel, but likely won’t launch on older Pixels in October. Those will likely come in the next Pixel Feature Drop which is in December, or even a bit later.
We’ll find out more on October 4 when Google takes the stage at 10AM ET sharp. Rick Osterloh might have some surprises for us, which would be great to see.
